We Still Have Cherries, but Ralph's Are Gone!!
We are going thru withdrawal from our visit by Ralph and his Wife. They are great house guests. The type that just come in and make themselves at home. (thinking on that most of our guest are that way. Means they feel at home OR they have to fend for themselves) Ralph's brought about 10K calories in the form of a gift from a chocolate factory.
This cherry tree was bursting forth with fresh fruit. It was a center of entertainment. The Neighbors, and Ralphs and the Morrow's gathered around the tree to pick. I think this tree may be Biblical in a sense. We picked several gallons of cherries, and "the tree was not consumed". We never made a dent. Everyone hung around for a visit and slow charcoaled and smoked chickens.
