Out of the Office

No work on the Port Tobacco material was undertaken for the last two days by the GAC crew...I was in Cumberland with Pete, Anne, and Kelley on another project. We came back from Cumberland with three chert flakes, some white earthenware and Shenandoah Valley pottery, a few nails, sherds of vessel and window glass, and six...yes, six...pies, all from Hepburn Orchard in Hancock. They have been cataloged as follows:
  1. Cherry Vanilla
  2. Pecan
  3. Lemon Meringue
  4. Black Cherry
  5. Dutch Apple
  6. Blueberry
As you can see from the photograph, Kelley is menacing the stack of pies which are helplessly belted into the seat. Anne cannot be trusted to protect baked goods. If I hadn't pulled over to the side of the road and reprimanded Kelley, Anne would have joined in the mass consumption of pie. Pete, sitting in the front passenger seat, panicked at first, but recovered and assisted in suppression of the rebellion.

All six pies are believed to have reached their destinations without further molestation.


PS. We are planning on having a lab day at Port Tobacco this Saturday, 9 AM to 3 PM.

I respectfully request that Jim provide pies to be served to all the stalwart volunteers for the Saturday lab extravaganza.
