GB and Gravy, seasoned piefesters, are you going to piefest? Go to piefest.

Doooooooooooo it.

I likely will, but I probably won't commit until later in the summer.

It is too bad that the ride there sucks so hard, because the people and the pie are top notch.

I suspect that I may celebrate this evening.

I realise that this may be insignificant to most of you, but it's a very big deal to me.

Thank you all.
I have always been on the production/packaging equipment supplier side of this process. Still it is exciting when successful production begins. Congrats and yes drinks are well deserved.

Carl with a K should come to piefest. GB is a wishy washy tart for not committing. ing.

I really need to go to pie-fest! I now have a top case capable of hauling pies.

My aunt makes some of the best pies I have ever sampled. I know she could be talked into making a couple for me... A skill I should really have her teach me soon.

I suggest a competing pie fest or practice for the month of June or July.

Splendid idea.

July would be better. my last two week stint in Lubbock, plus my expedition to the Tetons takes place in June.

I planted a couple thousand square feet of grass for a friend over the last couple of weeks; some rehab, some new. I was a little tense, but much of it has germinated and is now sprouting!

Something very therapeutic about watching things grow.

Are you gonna go all Hank Hill on us?

It is surprising to read that you have actually done something more or less worthwhile.
