Fresh Blackberries!!

Not the handheld electronic devices but large, plump, sweet blackberries fresh off the vines from the NC mountains. My wife and son picked them while I was up in the Mountians doing a ride today.

I'm already jacked up for supper tomorrow night-fresh blackberry cobbler right out of the oven.....Yummmm!!!

Let's see.......2 large bowls of cobbler =_________ # of calories. I think I burned enough riding for 6+ hours today to handle it. Don't you think???

Knowing Big Paulie's love for Pie I knew his intent!! I think he just got a little excited hearing about a fresh Blackberry cobbler.

I have spent over 20 years working with Big Paulie in therapy, trying to deal with his addiction to cobbler of any ilk. It was when he became fascinated with peanut butter cobbler that I was able to convince him he had hit rock bottom, and needed to change.

However, having said that, the mere mention of fresh blueberry cobbler was bound to erupt in an orgy of sense memory for him. I can only pray he makes it through the weekend.

The only abrasion on this forum is road rash
