So, what did you think about when you read the letter A?
The Scarlet Letter? Alvin from the Chipmunks? "A-a-a-a-a" as in the Fonzie's?
Nope. You get no analyzing from me about your answer.
Mine, you ask?
Avocados. That's because an avocado fell from our tree during the amazing storm this past weekend. Most of the fruit are at the top, which surprised me. I didn't think we'd have much of a crop because of the big one last year. But nearly every time I looked at the avocado tree, and it was infrequent, I found another hidden among the leaves. Trés cool.
I read that avocados start ripening once they're picked and that the best place to store avocados is on their tree. In two or three days, the avocado may be ready to eat. Maybe four days. If so, our feasting on avocados begin.
Once all the avocados are harvested, we'll lop off the top branches. The Mama taught me to prune high in the tree so that the fruits would grow low on the tree. We shall see.
Wait, wait. Don't go yet. I also want to tell you that the letter A is also for ABC Wednesday, the fun weekly meme I've been doing for two or three years. Today ABCW begins it's 20th round. Yaaaay! Sadly, it also starts the final round for Roger and other ABCW administrative team members. Thank you very much for your dedication and good cheer!
