The good news is I didn't miss pie ride day this year. The bad news is that the apple pie that I had was hospital food. Mrs. Grouch and I toppled our Screamer tandem over on Labor Day and I broke my hip. During my recovery I was tottering around with a walker and couldn't get up the stairs to the room that houses my primary computer. I just started using a cane yesterday which made it possible for me to climb the stairs and post this.
