    How quickly the memories of “Apple Dora” came flooding back when I read your essay. I remember riding with my father to Apple Dora’s home (in the ’50’s and ’60’s), where she had boxes of apples stored during the autumn in outdoor sheds. The apples would keep through the cold season, in our basement. Nothing was ever so tastey…even though we could afford only the least expensive picked over fruit. They seemed to make the best flavored pies that ever came from my mother’s oven. Thanks for bringing back that memory.

    All raise a glass of apple cider to Dwight Miller!
