More than one way to pit a cherry!

"Hey, did you keep your parents' cherry pitter?" "No, I think it went to the thrift store."

Oh well.  I got out the paring knife and pitted my first cherry.  Hmm.  There must be a better way.  I knew I'd find some alternative ideas online.  I watched one person smash the cherry, one use my paring knife method, one use a paperclip, and one DIY pitter made from a bent fork.  But somewhere in the back of my head ... the straw....  Not sure where I heard about it, but it worked well!

Thanks to a student's family, we had cherry cobbler this evening! Yummmm!

Guess what hubby turned up in the basement while looking for something else after the cobbler was cooked...  Yup!  What timing!
