No surprise the dollar fell today after the news of the shake-ups on Wall Street. But a good pie is still worth... well, at least a '72 Chevy pick-up. That's the sweet deal a man in Eugene, Oregon, got for his truck.

He tried to sell it, but couldn't find a buyer. Then a woman came up with something better than cash. She agreed to give him one homemade pie a month for two years.

The recent final "pie-ment" was a piping hot peach pie. The woman who did all the baking is some smart shopper. She also
traded a pie for a discount tune-up at a local repair shop.
