Apple Picking Time

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

[quote="Dumbo"]Well that sounds easy enough. TY, Big Smile.

No teasing allowed. Or i'll somehow, someway, force you to mail me a blueberry pie for Xmas.
LOL ,the pie would get stale before it gets to Ottawa.

Same day fedex. You send in the morning. I eat it in the afternoon. We'll give the bill to Eeyore.

I take it you've given up on sucking up to Lyn? (I think with your, ahem, proclivities, you'd need all the help you can get!!) :lol:

Eeyore is just playing hard to get. She knows she waaaaants some. And I haven't broken out the Old Spice yet.

Right now she is eating out of my hands and putting out her fav pie recipes. Won't be long till she's doing upside down splits on a chrome pole. Any day now...

Meanwhile, back in this reality....

Tis OK to courier within the country but gaud help you if a courier brings it across the border, as they tack on huge fees for the recipient.

I ordered a new Camera from Adorama in NYC last month & insisted it be sent by US Postal Service, as I know what the gouging couriers do. The computerized system they use switched it automatically to UPS since they do not ship over $200 by mail, something the order-taker obviously did not know. UPS demanded $152 @ the door for something that would have cost zero $ if mailed. To there credit, Adorama refunded the money to my credit card.

WOW thats brutal. Good to hear you got the credit.


No need to worry about sending a pie via fedex cause it ain't gonna happen. We travel to Ottawa occationally and could drop off at Marcs door IF and When that will ever happen ,, LOL

I don't use the oil pastry recipe that Clara uses...mine is made in a food processor using butter and lard.
