Food for Thought

My mother and grandmother called it pie plant. That pretty much says it all – they almost exclusively made it into pies. It was a rare day when rhubarb appeared on the table in any other form. Once in a great while, there would appear a dish of pinkish, stringy-looking something – a sort of puckery, sweet and sour sauce that we generally turned up our noses at.

Walkin'

It’s not going to be a good week for Buzz.
Now 10 years old or about 80 in big-dog years, the old hound is still in pretty good shape thanks to a strict diet and regular exercise. Since he was a puppy, we’ve walked three or more miles a day, every day with only a few exceptions. In his prime, I’d estimate that for every mile I’d go Buzz would travel 10, ranging far and wide to turn up a deer, squirrel or wrapper still holding a cheeseburger molecule or two.
