Pie judges had plenty of wedge issues


I was a judge, one of 16, at the Claremont Pie Festival on Saturday. I describe the experience in my Wednesday column.

Above, I’m hard at work, a moment captured by impish Claremont Councilman Sam Pedroza, who wasn’t a judge (Corey Calaycay was) but kibitzed with us. Below, a typical serving, of which we generally ate half, and below that, the scene afterward in which bakers served free tastes of their entries.

    I know how you felt. My grandson and I decided to treat ourselves to homemade root beer floats. Loved the first one, couldn’t finish the second one. Grandson had to finish it so it wouldn’t go to waste. (Waist?)

    Tout?? Really?? How have I missed the jewel of bits from Dr. Oz and the View? Enjoyed your Touts – pass on the rest.

    Eat a salad. You’ll feel better in no time.

      I’ll be doing more videos. The higher-ups are very excited about the technology.
