Cherry Handpies

A cherry pie routinely sat atop the counter that was created by the dishwasher.   The kitchen appliance that appeared in my grandparent’s kitchen one random year because someone somewhere thought it necessary that two aging folks needed a dishwasher after 70 some years of living without one.

HEEELLLLOOOOOO!  Is there anyone out there still reading blogs, let alone this one?  A friend texted me recently asking if it were true, I hadn’t blogged since May?  Had she missed an update, was there a new web address, had I fallen off the edge of the earth, had I moved to Mars?
