This is my latest FO (finished object), bound off last night. I need to block it and weave in ends, but that will have to wait. We will have visitors in a few hours, thanks to one of those "it's a small, small world" incidents.

Last September when Rick and Brian went to Minnesota for a short canoe trip on the boundary waters, they stopped by our old stomping grounds and went to church in Detroit Lakes. They weren't the only visitors that Sabbath; an older couple from California were also there. They all got to visiting over potluck and starting connecting the dots . . . amazing dots. The gentleman was Rick's dad's college roommate and best friend, and best man in Rick's parents' wedding. He is also my dad's second cousin; his mother and my grandmother (who died a year ago at 100 years of age) were first cousins.

Rick gave them our number, and they called last weekend. They are taking a road trip from CA to British Columbia and back, and are stopping here overnight tonight. They insisted on taking us to dinner; I decided to make a dessert we can come back home to enjoy. I'm off to play with peaches; we're having fresh (not baked) peach pie! :-D

Edited to add this:
Don't look closely at my crust. Pie crust and I are NOT on good terms.
But sometimes it is worth the hassle.... ;-)
That's it for today from . . .

Very cool story. Yumm, peach pie. One of my goals in life is to master a really good pie crust. It would help if I actually started working on it. :-0

And I forgot to send the fresh peach pie recipe... I'm virally impaired. I'll send it today - I'm sure you still have peaches!!
