When you die, if you get a choice between going to regular heaven or pie heaven, choose pie heaven.
It might be a trick, but if it’s not, mmmmmmmm, boy.

As I travel about Central Texas surveying nursing homes, my co-workers all know I'm on a very serious quest – to find the best chocolate meringue pie in Texas. Right now Bluebonnet Cafe in Marble Falls (they actually have a pie happy hour) and Franks Restaurant in Schulenburg (between Houston and San Antonio) are neck in neck. But, when I transfer to the Temple office this week and my territory expands, all bets are off.
Friday was my last day working in the Austin office. I hate goodbyes, especially to such sweet folks. They've been my family for the past couple of years, and it's been such an honor to hang out with them. Check out what one of them gave me – a chocolate pie made out of felt! (Yes, this is a very serious quest, worthy of being commemorated with felt!)
I think I finally found the best pie in Texas . . . . Thanks, Kathy!
We're still crazy busy getting ready for our move to Waco so I didn't get a Texas Tuesday card made for Libby and her gang this week. But, I have the next best thing – a song about pie! If you've never seen the movie Michael, it's worth renting for Andie MacDowell's tribute to pie. Enjoy
Me oh my
Nothing tastes sweet, wet, salty and dry
all at once o well it's pie
an' wet bottom.
Come to your place everyday if you've got em'
Me o my
I love pie
~ Andie MacDowell in Michael
