Joan Dennison and Judy Partridge were long time residents of Pickleberry. They met in the small town at the 1950 town bake-off. The bake-off was to be held this month, like it was every year and Joan and Judy were sure as pie going to enter. Joan had won the bake-off almost every year, with her first win being sixty years ago, for her delectable lemon cream pie. Judy had always participated in the bake-off but she never took it seriously. Not as seriously as Joan did. Judy never took anything as seriously as Joan did.
