What I Got Today!

Recommended Posts

Made six more pies today. Looks like the punkin will yield about 16 pies. Throughput has suffered in an unfamiliar kitchen. I can usually do 2.75-3.25 PPH (pies per hour) at home, while here I am topping out at around 1.75 pph. My high country peeps heard I was in Co. Spg, and baking. The orders are rolling in.

    Oh, yeah. Roasted the seeds, too. Nom nom nom.

Actually, Saturday....

 

Drove down to Indy and had a great visit with my bud Davis  @Davis.....dropped off a couple of goodies, and picked up a couple of goodies....Welcome (Back) home to the raw birch HIP's...now mated with the blonde birch H2's in my office, running off a Fisher 500C receiver.  They sound fantastic together.

 

BTW, the wall and the carpet are not actually purple....the blue shag carpet is next on the list for extraction.....

Wow - never knew anyone had a PPH rating (pies per hour). But I have known people with CPPH (consuming pies per hour) ratings. 

I guess you have to make 'em to eat 'em !

Those look great together, your riser for the HIP's is a bit more attractive than my method.

Glad we could reunite the HIP's with its other siblings.

I did enjoy my time together with them and totally love how unique they are.

It was great to have @jimjimbo visit my house today. It is always nice to visit with him.

It was sad to see the HIP's go back home with him but a deal is a deal.

Jim left a lil something behind, well not so little actually.

I can not be more impressed with the Belles. The condition of them is incredible. They sound much better than I ever dreamed and blend seamlessly with my K-Horns.

I even skipped a party Saturday night so I could stay home and give them a proper listen.

It was a long wait, almost 3 weeks to be exact before we could arrange getting them down to my place, I didn't go crazy during that period as I was very busy and traveling some of it, but it was getting more difficult by the day.

I was very anxious that cold Saturday morning when he arrived in his familiar vehicle, the same one he drove when we first met in a Walmart parking lot when I obtained the HIP's.

I was so excited I forgot to take any pics while he was here.

Thank you so much Jim, you have made a long search come to fruition.

It was my pleasure both to take care of the Belles and to deliver them to Davis…

I agree. I used my Belle for Khorn center duty and they play very nicely together. The ones you scored from Jim are in great condition, which make them sound even better. :emotion-21:
