    Someone said it's like losing your compass and that is the most resonant reference I've yet been given.

    I also think it's interesting that now that she is gone, I am ... ready? not ready but have no choice? processing a lot of trauma stuff from my past. One of mom's highest values was someone who could be "a brick" in crisis, so maybe I don't have to do that anymore? Or *can't* do that anymore? Maybe I've lost my capacity for stoicism? Or maybe she was the foundation for my walls that made life manageable? It's like, she died, I grieved, there was a little pause, and then all this crap came roaring back from other stuff. I'm a hot mess over here.
    When my dad died years ago, I described it as having my mooring lines cut. I felt like I was suddenly adrift at sea.

    It's likely seeds from a tomato you grew won't produce the same kind of tomatoes - seems like most tomato plants available are hybrids, and seeds from hybrids don't give the same results as their parents.

    And...home-grown fresh tomatoes are the worst of all. The more flavor, the more gag-inducing. My dad was famous for his home-grown tomatoes. All summer long every year I would have a small bowl of fresh tomatoes as part of our dinner. My summer nightmare.

    I was not aware they existed, but totally makes sense.
    I wonder if you might have better luck on Molokai?

    He says it burns at a lower temp and he can control the heat better. But he has an offset firebox smoker and I think it has a blower too. I haven't tried it in my Akorn but I can't see it being any better than lump charcoal for what I have.
    I can keep my Akorn at 200 for 12 hours with lump charcoal. Your buddy may smoke all the time, but it sounds like he may be a little lacking in technical ability.

    I think I'm going to be sick. (the tomatoes, not the Wonder bread.)

    I'm guessing that's a partial ownership.

    There has to be a catch, next to a pig farm?, super-fund site nearby?, atomic termites?
