  • Cherries & the Cherry Tree

    Son Marc is here from the Lone Star State with family. So good to have him here. Went over to sister Ann’s house and focused on the gigantic Cherry Tree and all those red berries (or is it fruit). After picking for about an hour of the three of us – grandpa, son, grandson – we had about a half of a 5 gallon bucket full. The good people upstairs are now pitting these little bad boys for our future enjoyment. Sister skimmed off a 6 cup batch for her famous Cherry Pie and disappeared butwill be heard from again when the bounty is cooked and pie’d. Tomorrow is the 4th of July. Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, of the United States of America. This is something of which we are extremely proud and celebrate by the picking of the Cherries in our small town.

    Several members of the family are absent from our personal get together. Children and Grandchildren are on foreign soil in service to our country and trying to make a difference to humanity. We are proud of them and their selfless service to the nation in which we were raised and pledge our allegiance. Thank you all.
