I have the best friends you could ask for! If you remember back to me writing about them in "My Second Favorite Place to Be..." http://sunnysideup-eve.blogspot.com/2008/03/my-second-favorite-place-to-be.html you know that I spend as much time at their farm as I think they can put up with. I say this because I can be more than a handful at times! With my opinions and rantings on the happenings of the times...you see I'm not always Sunny Side Up! I know they love me though and one of the reasons I think they put up with me is for my entertainment value alone! I love to tell stories. We had these two over a few weeks ago for a fun cookout/get together and of course I was telling them about the digging of my garden and a treasure I found while shaking out the sod. As they waited for the end of the story, I ran inside a grabbed a little zip-lock baggie with a wet paper towel inside. Taking out the towel and opening it up, I reveled what I had found..."Look I found an 'Oak Nut' in the garden and decided to see if it would germinate!!!"
Now we all get old and forgetful, but being a very creative person, when I had a loss for the word 'acorn' I managed to come up with 'oak nut' without skipping a beat. Well, this brought on a round of laughs and in the years to come as this little sprout gets bigger it will always be known as "Eve's Oak Nut Tree"!
Have a great weekend!!
