Math, physics and pie lovers found the solution to their sweet tooth Thursday in quick fashion at the Bakeshop in Boyd.

On March 14, also known as Pi Day for the mathematical constant representing the circumference of a circle to its diameter, 3.14, slices of the sweet and savory round treats flew off of the shelves of Kraig and Letty Thome’s pop-up bake shop. Fifty minutes after opening the doors at 10:30 a.m., nearly every slice in the cafe was gone.

“It’s a record for how quickly portions sold,” said Kraig about his nearly 16 hours of work making several dozens of pies the day before.
He kept cutting slice after slice, catching only glances as the waiting crowd crammed in.

Pi Day made a good excuse for some to hit up the Bakeshop. Carrying away a few slices, Julie Medlock said her husband Randy would say any day is good for Kraig’s homemade pie.
Brett Butler had driven in from North Richland Hills to tend to some cattle in the area and stopped in to grab a few slices.

“It’s a positive aspect of my travel today,” he said.

Not long after Butler left, Kraig announced he had the last three tickets in his hand with only a few sparse slices left at 11:20 a.m. Unlike pi, the pie supply doesn’t keep going and going.
