1. I sang my dad's version of "Turkey In the Straw" for little L. today. (His lyrics use whiskey rather than water on the chicken's leg and that was the only way I learned it.) L.'s eyes got very big as I sang. I think she took the story literally.
2. We have a family doctor who will phone us to discuss things.
3. The peaches from Saunder's Farm Market are amazing. They are a variety called Labor Day and are freshly picked this late in the season.
Whenever I eat an exceptional peach, I recall our 4th grade teacher reading James and the Giant Peach aloud to us. James' description of the delicious peach flesh was almost too much to bear as we sat with our heads down on our desks and no peach to eat for ourselves.
