Desperately needing another pandemic break, Mrs. Pie and I took the chance on a November trip to the beach. Again, visiting our beloved 30A on the Florida Gulf Coast, we were truly blessed with a beautiful week with the weather forecasters being about as wrong as they possibly could be. This time though we stayed […]

Holidaying at the beach during COVID was a great getaway for me and Mrs. Pie. Trying to squeeze in one more pizza joint before we went back home, I took a chance on a place that I didn’t think would be too great. Leaving the sand for a quick afternoon snack, my intuition about Sauce […]

It’s now been nine months since I’ve been to New York City. That’s the longest separation I have ever had from my favorite city in the world and I miss it dearly. COVID has not been too nice to the City and to quote a former Manhattanite friend who has since left for Texas: “Everything […]
