SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING FRUIT BASKET
Last week Ron had a surgical procedure. Nancy, a dear friend of mine, brought us a basket of fruit and a small bouquet of flowers. Because I was with Ron, my daughter told Nancy that she would keep the basket in her car until she could transfer it to my car. Instead she forgot and took it home with her to Oklahoma City. Because the strawberries in the basket were very ripe, she and her family decided the humane thing to do would be to eat them. They also took mercy on the grapes and ate them as well.
My daughter brought her children for spring break and she delivered us our fruit. The remaining oranges and apples went into the refrigerator. Ron and I still had not eaten any of the fruit when the grandchildren decided to share a snack with the neighbor's horses. What could they feed them? Why not apples? Now I have oranges. We better eat an orange before they disappear.
However the goats are jealous of the horses getting those apples so I'm sure...well, you know...if goats like oranges they've got it made:)
