14. When Dad came home early

His dinner bucket would have his Hostess Apple pie in it, for my sister and I.

We would take that pie and unwrap it. take a butter knife and measure it out...(my job, I was the oldest) and cut it equally, she would pick the half she wanted (mom's rule) It was a special treat, wonderful memory.

I am sketching scenes from my childhood. The above is among them. My sister hanging on my arm, making sure I am fairly dividing the pie. Me taking my duties seriously as I slice. I even had to look up on the internet, to see exactly how a hostess pie wrapper looked in the 1960s...I wanted that picture perfect.

Like you, I have found their pies today to be bland, I had thought it was old taste buds..I also purchased a box of twinkies couple few weeks back...EVEN they were not the same, again I thought it was me.
