A nutty guy
An American car
1939 Chevy coupe, me 'n this car were born the same year!
And now: I am thankful for nuts!
I enjoy nuts. I like peanuts from raw, salted to honey roasted, even boiled. Then there are Pecans, walnuts, hickory nuts, Pistachios, Almonds, hazelnuts and Cashews.
I eat some nuts every night. What brought this up is pistachios. What do you do with the ones you cannot open with your finger nails? I usually throw them away with the other hulls, but I hate doing it.
I like nuts in a salad, on ice cream and in pies. I have never been a big fan of the pumpkin pie. But once I ate Thanksgiving dinner at an Orphanage. The cook a sweet lady served pumpkin pie with pecans on top. The flavors went so good together I began to enjoy pumpkin pie.
As a Teenager I liked Pepsi/Coke with salted peanuts poured down the neck of the bottle after some liquid had been sipped out.
My daddy’s favorite was parched peanuts. I even like ‘green’ peanuts just after they are dug from the ground.
To me the king of nuts is the cashew because that was sis Shirley & my treats when we got a chance to go to Sears and Roebuck with dad. When we passed the candy counter it wasn’t the candy we wanted it was cashews.
Are you a nut type person, maybe even nutty?
It is Thanksgiving, I am thankful for so many things it would be impossible for me to list them. But taking a shot gun view,
I am thankful for:
and foremost my LORD.
