On Hold

We decided to stay put here at the Fort Willcox RV Park for a day. It is a nice, clean, quiet little park and we have been on the move for a few days. Norma is doing well sitting but her hip hurt this morning and I am a little tired as well. We have crossed two time zones in the last few days and I don't think I have quite caught up.

The owner of the park makes and sells pies! As I was checking in the smell of fresh apple pie permeated the office so I bought one. It was delicious! I went back to see what else she had and saw a Shoo Fly Pie. I have heard of these Southern delicacies but never tasted one. It is more like a cake in a pie shell and is made from molasses. It gets it's name from the fact that the sweet cake attracted flies when cooling on the windowsill and the cook was kept busy shooing them away. She says it is very good with coffee. We shall try it later today.


  1. That was a lot of miles to cover. Too much for me!

    I hope we get to see the pie before it is eaten. Enjoy!

    Hi Norma.

  2. Kicking back eating pie - a tough life you lead my friend.
