Sitter Day and Snack Time

Today is sitter day.

Our corn got critter ravaged this year. That is the kind of thing that happens when you grow a garden.
It is sort of a learn as you go experience.

There is a little market down the road a piece that is selling sweet corn at 2.50 a dozen. I’m going to look into it.

    The bacon-parmesan thing isn’t playing fair. It’s a nasty trick to post something like that before I’ve eaten.
