The Blueberry Pie Caper

I rarely get in trouble as a child. If something happened when Mom was away, she would say to my sisters and brother when she returned, “You need to be an example to Kevin.” I was such an angelic child:) Whenever I say this with my sister or wife present they start laughing uproariously. Then, Valerie talks about the kind of trouble I start like the blueberry pie caper.

I’m seven. My sister, Valerie, gets me angry about something she asks me to do. She comes out the front door of our home. It is so hot, but there is a cool breeze. I’m sitting on one of the front door steps. I say, “Sis, sit down beside me and take a break.” Without looking she sits down on a freshly baked blueberry pie my Mom leaves outside to cool. Mom is taking it to a pie social. There is pie all over her newest and coolest white denim pedal pushers. It’s such a huge sacrifice to make. Blueberry pie is my favorite pie.

The execution of my plan comes off much better than my wildest expectations. Mom comes out of our home when Valerie cries out to Mom saying, “It’s all Kevin’s fault! He made me sit on the blueberry pie!” Mom says, “Valerie, you should have watched what you were doing.”

Being the youngest does have its advantages.

Our greatest calling is to be servants of our Lord wherever He calls us to go.



About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
