Popping Cancer Update: The party's almost over.

The first successful week of rest is nearing an end. During my other two three-week sessions of chemotherapy, you will remember, the third week (the week without treatment wherein I was supposed to gain strength for the next round) hit me with various bugs and viruses that kept me sick and tired instead of strong like ox.

This week I've felt pretty good. Weak as always, and a mild cough, but nothing to complain about. I even went out of the house (shock!) to an Amish breakfast buffet in Columbiana County, Ohio.

I have today off (The hope is that a good nap in the afternoon means I can leave the house again for supper at a non-crowded restaurant, assuming the checkbook allows) and tomorrow off, then chemotherapy hits again on Wednesday. Oop Aak.

I hope you have your chemotherapy gifts all picked out.

I........you......you went to an Amish breakfast? What exactly is that? Are there hats involved?

There were bonnets.

We have a large Amish population in Ohio, and one Amish group runs a restaurant called The Dutch House, which has the best comfort food you've ever eaten, specifically pie.

Turns out they serve the best breakfast you've ever eaten, too, which is nice, since breakfast is the best tasting and least expensive meal of the day.

I'm all over the pie!

I can say without doubt or reservation that they serve the best pie, with every variation I've tasted so far included, anywhere.
