(Feb 21) Last time I was in Pennsylvania, it was to see Pete’s grandmother. This time, it was to pick up inventory for Pete’s store. Although it superficially appears to be farmland, in fact Pennsylvania was created by British King Charles II, who named it for Admiral Penn and and the ancient Japanese word for consumer electronics, leading Penn’s son William to open the world’s largest, and only factory direct Sylvania electronics superstore in the colonies.

It’s pretty scenery

(October 10) Having avoided them for fear of death from age eight until last year, Tony has developed quite a thing for the apple since discovering they don’t trigger his food allergies. With that in mind, we set out on a quest for pommes.

espresso, tony style
According to Tony, you’re looking at the only espresso on the east coast worth drinking.

tony wasn't having any basket nonsense
After a false start, we found apples to pick from trees (and not baskets).

they remind me of plates my mother had also
The more I look at these photos, the more they remind me of my childhood.

these are the eating kind
Of course the wild apples of my childhood weren’t fit to eat, but they looked vaguely similar.

apple trees as far as the eye can see
Apples everywhere. Despite the brisk business, it’s hard to believe they make enough now for the year.

tony's reached apple nirvana
Tony’s so happy he almost exploded.

nice view
It’s quite a view to have from your backyard.

All I could think was “Who is Peg Leg Bates?

hal killer
This pothole took out the mighty Volvo.

Tony was just relieved no apples were harmed, though two tires were blown out.

Hah hah hah. The hook up, eh? Not quite what springs to mind.
