The Pie Restaurant, otherwise known as the Rock Springs Cafe in Rock Springs/Black Canyon City, Arizona, has claimed two more in the continuing saga of former Phoenix television employees.

Today, it was Roger Ball, a Silver Circle member of the Rocky Mountain Emmy Chapter.

And Carol Lynde, also a Silver Circle honoree and holder of 21 (count 'em) Emmy Awards statuettes.

They were joined by your friendly Scribe, not a member of any circle nor holder of any statuettes but boldly in the center of this picture protecting his friends from a polar bear.

Since I live about 50 miles north of the roadhouse and greater Phoenix is about 50 miles to the south, this has become a meeting place for reunions of this sort.

Suffice it to say that many stories of "the good old days" were related.

Lunch wasn't bad either.

When I read "21 Emmy Awards," I couldn't help but think of this old opening from SNL in 1990, when Susan Lucci hosted, and they gave her a backstage tour and poked fun at her lack of an Emmy.

It looks like quite an eclectic spot.

It was a GREAT time, but you need a new camera. That one makes me look so old! ;)

I would have liked being a fly on the wall so I could listen to those stories.

Nice. I'll bet there's never been a polar bear attack in that restaurant while you've been there to protect patrons.

We finally stopped and ate there this year on our way back from Phoenix for work. We didn't have any pie, but the food was good. You can imagine the building as some old roadhouse coach stop. I guess it still is!

Good to keep up with old pals and colleagues.
