Friday's Feast for August 10

It's Friday, so let's have a Feast.

What is your favorite kind of pie?

Mom's apple pie made the old fashioned way with totally unhealthy stuff in the crust.

In this picture from March my little brother Dave from Oregon was in the area and Mom baked an awesome apple pie in his honor.

We had a great visit and ate every last crumb of the pie.

Name something that made you smile this week.

It rained!! We got a little over an inch.

We've been suffering and are still suffering from Level 2 drought. There has been irreversible plant damage. Many of the none damaged plants have gone dormant for the year.

Since we live in a swamp wetland our damage was not as extensive as other places in SW Michigan. It still hasn't been pleasant with the trucks and heavy equipment on our "under construction" dirt road. Remember the dust clouds when they took the trees down?

Other summers the county has watered our road on a regular schedule. They're not doing that this year. My theory: They want us to get as much dust as possible so we will be grateful they're going to pave the road.

What do you do to cool off when the weather is hot and humid?

Do all chores that require effort in the cool of the morning and then sit in front of the fan during the heat of the day.

Main Course
You receive $1,000 in the mail with a letter that says you can only use the money to redecorate one room in your home. Which room do you pick, and what do you buy to spruce it up?

The only pretend part of this is the someone giving me money to spend.

With the missing trees and more missing trees to come next week, the house is now exposed to the road and the neighbors. I need to buy curtain rods and curtains for the windows.

For this question I pick the living room because it has the biggest windows and will be the most expensive.

Fill in the blank: My _________ says __________, but I __________.

My birth certificate says I'm 62 years old, but I don't feel it most of the time.
