Amish: That thing up there (pointing to my name tage clipped to my scrub) is that your name?
A: How do you say your name?
A: looks surprised: huh?
A: stammers a bit and then "Well, that's okay to have that name."
Well thank you so much. My life is full and complete now because I now have your permission and blessing to have my name. Not like his daughter's name was ultra simple and plain, but hey whatever flies your kite.
There was no pie post for this week because we had a couple's supper Friday night and part of the activity was the guy had to make a pie with the wife only giving instructions. Her hands were tied behind her back. It was quite easy for me as D had made a pie a few weeks back and we could watch a few make them in front of us and were able to follow their technique as well. We struggled on the fancy edgings because I do it different from most people and I couldn't explain very well how to do it. But it was a yummy PB pie.
Maybe later this week I'll do another pie. We wil have to see.

I had my Pie No. 6 & 7 and pics of the quilt I had made, the azalea D bought me and our naughty puppies. So please feel free to imagine any or all of the above. They were lovely, even though the pics didn't do justice anyway.
Pie No. 6 was a Coconut Cream Meringue Pie that was wonderful. Pie No. 7 was an Old-Fashioned Custard Pie that was exactly the opposite. While having a nice texture, it had an odd taste. I don't know if it was the nutmeg flavor or if it took on a flavor in the fridge. It will be food for the pigs, I believe.
Anyway, that is all. I struggled to get these pics uploaded in the first place and I have no intentions of trying again. I am off to make stuffed animals. Hopefully, my sewing machine will not talk about editing conflicts.
It appears as though this post never was posted. Not sure what happened there. If this truly is a repeat, just ignore it and then ignore me.
Pie No. 6 was a yummy Coconut Cream Meringe Pie. It looked quite pretty when I took it out of the oven. I really have no food taking abilities, but I try anyway. I want to blame at least some of it on the camera. Pie No. 7 was an Old-Fashioned Custard Pie. Not even worth a picture. It is awaiting a trip to the pig pen. It had a lovely texture, but a very odd taste. I think it was the nutmeg I put in; either that or it took on the taste of something else that was in the fridge. Not very good. Wanted to try a Pink Lemonade Pie this weekend, but D turned up his nose, so I guess we will wait on that. I think it sounds pretty good.... Well, next up was going to be a pic of us on our 2 nd anniversary, or a day before, I guess. However, it appears that I accidentally erased it and I have already tried 3 times to get all the pics and the right ones uploaded and I am not planning to try again. Just go look at our wedding pic and you're good to go.
Our wonderful little doggies, who have put us all in the dog house over the last few weeks. I sweep the floor and they immediately jump up on the door of the cage yapping and whining and sending out sprays of shavings which then get drug through the entire house. But hopefully soon they will all be somebody else's problem. 2 gone and 5 to go yet.
