For when I try to remember later when it was: last night we went to listen to the local philharmonic orchestra playing and to meet our niece’s boyfriend, who plays in it. He loves his new hat. We really like him.

Tonight, we went to a potluck of about 20 people and to swap Thanksgiving stories.

Alice’s was that the part of her family assigned to bring pies one year decided that their relative’s kitchen was small and let’s just leave them in the truck till it’s time for dessert.

They were at a farm.

I almost asked if it was a pickup as I was just waiting for it: crows? The dog? But yes, as she continued it was clearly a pickup.

It was the horses, and they were having the time of their lives.

I can clearly see them having sugar-high zoomies!

Oh yes! One year it was one of our cats, leapt onto the table and enjoyed nearly an eighth of a fresh pumpkin pie. Never knew they even liked pumpkin, just thought they disliked sweets.

Whoops! Who would have thought horses have a sweet tooth?

(To ccr in MA–apples? sugar cubes? in every story with a horse that I read in my childhood…)
Yikes, I hope they didn’t get ill. How could someone leave the pies not moved securely into the cab when they got out of it? Then, you might still be vulnerable to a determined bear (presumably not present nearvby), but that’s about it.
