The 'traditional' mums knew how to cook proper food. Unfortunately nowadays many have to go to work to make ends meet, and they have little time on their hands. ~ Best regards Angela

Hi Paul, I enjoyed this couplet. I agree; there’s nothing like mama’s/ grandmama’s apple pie. Have a wonderful day:-)Alexis

LOL, oh, this would be a dicey situation - there could be poison in that pie next time! Hope you're keeping well, my friend. Yes, it still seems surreal that we won't hear from Carolyn again, doesn't it?

Yes, Jack, commenting on wifey's cooking is a dangerous thing to do! ~ ~ Carolyn's departure has still not quite sunk in yet. I miss her and her special friendship... Regards // paul

Lol, bet that has caused many a row in a marriage Paul. Hope you're keeping well. Tom

I've heard say that comparing mum's cooking to wife's cooking is a big no-no!! Best to sit on the fence and eat what is put in front of us :) ~ Regards // paul
