hey youse guys

The weather was perfect. The people were great. The food was fantastic. I wish we could have stayed a bit longer at the Knoxville Yankee picnic this afternoon. Thanks to Wes and his wife Jenn for organizing the event.

The main attraction was the pizza from Brooklyn's Original Pizza in Lenoir City. The guys from the restaurant and I had a good laugh about the time they thought I was a corporate spy.

Wes' aunt flew down from Yonkers with a load of Drake's cakes, Stella D'Oro cookies and Zurro's bread. She told me that she won't be able to do it again because she's going to move to Tennessee. When I first saw Knoxville Yankee's preview photo of bread from a bakery that started with "Z" and ended with "ro's" I got excited that they might have some corn rye from Zaro's Bread Basket in Grand Central Terminal, a favorite of my family. I have no complaints about Zurro's though. It tasted great. A lot of people were most psyched about the stack of Junior's Cheesecakes. Overall, the highlight for me had to be the Devil Dogs but as I look at this photo, I can't believe I forgot to have a Yodel.

It was great to see you there! My husband, Michael, and I were really surprised to see that you came. The pizza was wonderful, and we had a lot of fun. Some of the food that we had, I have not seen since the last time that I was in MD. I hope that we can do this every year!


P.S. You look wonderful since you lost 60lbs. I didn't even recognize that it was you until you were leaving... Sorry
