Yes, yes - peach pie!

Mmm-mmm! From Reid's Orchard, at the edge of Owensboro, KY, the season's sweet peaches have been thoroughly enjoyed in many ways. Like so much that is perfectly wonderful, the huge, luscious wonders couldn't last long, and weren't designed to do so.

Week-long visits from three distant areas were enjoyed this summer. Family from Florida, Missouri and Minnesota arrived, we worked and played, and enjoyed all we could find. Of course, celebratory pie played its part, along with craft beer and wine, swimming, music, porch and bonfire chats—and love a' la mode!

SO NOW: time for apples! Pumpkins! Paw-paws for some of us Midwesterners, too. Let them all remind us to get out there, live your sweet life!
