Getting older and learning something, I am not sure I like it, and I will probably ignore my latest education which is:
Sherry has a cousin in Sylvester, Georgia. Ralph works part time for a nut company, mostly pecans. (I wonder if Ralph knows the pecan isn’t a nut?) As most folks know, Georgia is the #1 producer of Pecans in the USA.
Before we left Ralph called Sherry and asked if she wanted him to bring some pecans to Belmont when he came up. Sherry bought 50 pounds of ‘cracked Pee-cans’. We picked some out last night, she is picking some as I type. We love pecans.
My memories of Georgia Pecans comes from our stops at a chain of stores called, “STUCKEYS”. When I was allowed, I would buy the ‘Pecan Log”. MMMMM I loved them.
One of my ‘Silly Moments’ is related to Georgia pecans. When I was an instructor at a school at Albany Naval Air Station, we had a pecan tree in our back yard. Being ignorant of Pecans, I ‘picked some’ and shelled them ‘green’. VERY FOOLISH. I had to teach for a week with stained hands. I soaked them in Clorox & washed them many times, but the stain (like very bad tobacco stains) remained until they wore off. That is not ‘cool’ when you are wearing WHITES while teaching.LOL
One funny (to us) thing was when in Georgia, Sherry ordered a ‘Pecan (pe-chan) Cluster’ Blizzard @ Dairy Queen. The kid behind the counter said, “Do you mean PEE-CAN?” Sherry said, “Yes, that is it.”
I do ‘honestly’ love the accents from all over the country.
The Dairy Queen thing isn’t half as bad as the one in Indiana. Sherry wanted a Chocolate ice cream. The girl behind the counter says very seriously, “We have only vanilla, but really there is not difference in Chocolate and Vanilla except the color!” THAT GIRL SAID THAT TO A CHOCOHOLIC with a straight face, and lived. LOL
Thanks for coming by the log.
Sometimes you feel like a nut!
Sometimes you feel like a drupe!
