Well, grandfathers peanuts were harvested, laid out to dry, and the roasting process has begun – says sometimes when you roll the shell over in your hand you can see forms or faces like you do when looking at clouds, and proceeded to show me a few examples.
Said he’s never seen Jesus like people say they have in a tortilla or a spot on the wall, but then maybe he just hasn’t looked hard enough, or maybe Jesus isn’t interested in putting his face on a peanut.
Either way though he sees other things and it is a nice game to play with the little ones, and when the game is over you don’t have to put up the toys, just eat them.
Said he had one that looked just like a beavers face and set it aside, nodded off, and when he awoke it was gone – figures maybe he knocked it off while sleeping and a squirrel that comes around for peanuts or a piece of biscuit got it.
Says he doesn’t mind if such was the case as many the time when tending the peanuts and the garden the squirrel sat in a nearby the tree chattering away, maybe offering advice or just keeping him company, so he should share in the harvest as well……though I think the hounds would have something to say about that if he attempted to venture into the garden – they take their duties seriously in that regard but are accustomed to the squirrel coming and going pretty much as he pleases.
There will be homemade peanut butter now, cookies, bread, and probably a peanut pie along the way, already talk is of next year and planting more than this year……grandfather’s on a roll.
