Pie Pictures

First off, a big thank you for all the support on my last post.  It really means a lot to me, and I can never express fully how much I appreciate it.  Thank you.

In other news, today marks seven years since I was first diagnosed.  I'm still here, so screw you cancer!

In food news, we had a great barbeque for the 4th of July, and a wonderful dessert!  The cherries finally appeared last week so we had cherry pie with all the fixings.  Michigan is the #1 producer of sour cherries in the US, and sour cherries are the ones you use in cherry pie.  The Cherry Capital is Traverse City, located on the tip of the pinky finger on the back of your left hand.  I hope everyone knows that the lower peninsula of Michigan is shaped like a mitten, which is great for pointing out locations and fun for jokes.  We'll be up there for a week starting the Sunday after my birthday, the 17th, and I can't wait!  We were there last summer around the same time and had a great vacation and I think this year will be just as nice

Here are some pie pictures.  My mom is a fantastic cook, and the pie was wonderful!

The pie looks awesome! These ones (well, usually the apple pies but also cherry or whatever filling) look so American to me!

A - well Mr Impatient, you're just gong to have to keep waiting for a wig picture! :)

Zhu - glad you like the pics! It's true that pie is very American. I hope you like to eat pie too!

GYSC - Glad you like the pie pictures! Had another one last night, was even better than this one. The weather here has been too hot and humid :( And yes, my birthday is next Friday! I have many wishes, and will think of a Friday night request :)
