And yesterday it rained pies...!

Well, not really, but I'll get to that in a second.
Today we went to church as usual, and I managed to wake up at 8:00 am, even though I was tired and had gone to bed at past midnight the "night" before. 
Not much else happened that wasn't the usual stuff, but yesterday we did get three boxes of pies from Ft. Bragg (3 boxes with 10 pies each), thanks to a program called "Pies for Patriots."  Apparently, anyone who is active duty can get free apple pies from this annual event.  And so now we've been eating apple pies...
When we first got them, they were still nearly completely frozen, but we ate one like that anyway.
You might like hot pies and think that frozen pie would taste like a lot of other foods do when frozen or cold (i.e. not good), but it was pretty good, and of course, it stayed together pretty well; that is, it didn't crumble as much.  We don't have that many pies left now, because we took a case to church this morning and two were eaten during the fellowship meal and we gave all but one from that box away to other families.
But, we still have some, so if you come over to our house very soon, you can have some apple pie, although I must admit that we are out of ice cream.
