Only now getting to be lunch time. Hope the second half of the day is as good as the first.

Got up to H'burg and spent some really great face time with our very own Curmudgeon in Residence. I was tickled to also meet his sainted bride. Had to see who spent >4 decades with him. A first class lady.

Been wantin' get up there for a while, now. But, it became urgent when he mentioned that he was down to his last coconut pie. I was fearful of the danger he might present to himself or others, as he went cold turkey.

Thanks, my friend, for being my friend.
Para on the right....I'm the pretty one.

How'd you get in without a pie delivery?
My momma raised ugly kids, not stupid ones.

I HAD A PIE!!

It was sort of like one of the 12 Labors of Hercules to find one meeting Bill''s high standards. But I......am not easily defeated. Tried every casino in New Orleans. Tried Ideal Market (a Latino grocery with a world class bakery) Tried a number of upscale groceries.

Finally scored from a lady baker who is world famous throughout Slidell.

Not a fan of coconut, I cannot vouch for her coconut pie. But her cakes are heavenly.

Anxiously awaiting the verdict. Success or excommunication.

Pray for me!

All this time Mr Bill never said a pie NOT from boomtown was an option. Now I know. I’m glad he got his pie fix.
Good job Leonidas.

I sure hope Randy is taking notes!!!!
I see a chance at redemption in your near future.

Thank you.

Boomtown is still not open, even the one in NOLA. May be partially a case of "any port in a storm."

Coconut cream pies (at least keto/diabetic friendly ones) are under appreciated. They take essentially two days to make (the custard on day one has to chill and set pretty much overnight in the shell) and a long time standing over a pan constantly stirring the custard to come out right (to keep the eggs from scrambling). Day two is whipping and adding the heavy cream, and toasting some coconut shreds for the top. I make them once in a while, but it's a lengthy process.

Haha.

I was typing 'coconut pies are a lot wimminz, that way,' but some strange flash of morality made me delete it. Meh, getting cowardly in my dotage.
Yeah at this point I just say whiskey tango hotel. I'll say it.
