Charles Winkleton, an eccentric novelist and beard enthusiast, along with his friend and business associate Alfonso the Duck, ride two hours into town on the 3rd Sunday of every month. Their destination was Earl's Pie Palace. Earl's wasn't much to look at from the outside, but this was of little concern to those who knew what was served on the inside. Earl's made the most heavenly pies of every kind imaginable.
Charles always ordered the same thing, a slice of lemon meringue. Alfonso the Duck was a bit more adventurous though and liked to try something different with each visit. Today he was eager to try a slice of strawberry rhubarb.
