Hi, Granny.

I grew up across the street from a couple who had escaped Nazi Germany. The lady of the house had a compost pile set up in here back yard. I thought it was a great place with all kinds of treasures. Consequently, I had to be closely monitored each time I wandered near it. Otherwise, I would have been dirtier than normal. All the time.

Afternoon.

Had a hard time locating my place.

Worked my fanny off this weekend.

The squirrels spared my grapes this year for some unknown reason. I now have 10 lbs of washed, plucked and frozen grapes that I need to figure out what to do with.

Thanks for the tomato pie recipe..Sunday’s dinner.

Any many, many thanks for the dryer sheet in the burned pot solution.

Seems I was simmering a small amount of tomato juice to test a recipe and render it down.

I lost track of time and discovered a burned black mass in the bottom of the pan..very nasty. It was concrete.

I put cold water in the pan and it amazingly loosened and lifted straight out after a soaking interval..But there were some unfortunate bits around the side.

Remembered the dryer sheet and a long soak. It worked.

Do you need to rotate the frozen water bottles or replace them ever? I started doing this over a year ago based on your post.
