Strawberry Time

It’s Strawberry Time in Tennessee
Yes, those delicious strawberries are coming in and they are delicious. I have 1-2 bowls of these Tennessee strawberries every day. Yum yum!

We are fortunate to have Scott Strawberry & Tomato Farms, Inc. located in nearby Unicoi, TN. They offer some of best strawberries I have ever tasted. One of their means of sales is to set up Strawberry Stands in key locations in our part of Tennessee. At these stands you can buy berries that were picked the same day.

Here’s one of the Strawberry Stands. This one is in the Colonial Heights area of Kingsport, TN. P1050861
After the strawberries are delivered to the stand, it doesn’t take long for people to line up to buy these delicious berries. P1050860

Last year we bought enough strawberries one week make Strawberry Freezer Jam. Now we can enjoy the taste of strawberries all year. But you can’t beat FRESH!

Joke of the Day

Seven Ages of the Married Cold

1st year--The husband says, "Oh, sweetie pie, I'm really worried about those nasty sniffles you have! There's no telling what that could turn into with all the strep that's been going around. I'm going to take you right down to the hospital and have you admitted for a couple days of rest. I know the food is lousy there, so I'm going to bring you some takeout from Tosini's. I've already arranged it with the head nurse."

2nd year--"Listen, honey, I don't like the sound of that cough. I called the doc and he's going to stop by here and take a look at you. Why don't you just go on to bed and get the rest you need?"

3rd year--"Maybe you better go lie down, darling. When you feel lousy you need the rest. I'll bring you something--do we have any canned soup around here?"

4th year--"No sense wearing yourself out when you're under the weather. When you finish those dishes and the kids' baths and get them to bed, you ought to go to bed yourself!"

5th year--"Why don't you take a couple aspirin?"

6th year--"You oughta go gargle or something, instead of sitting around barking like a dog!"

7th year--"For Pete's sake, stop sneezing. Are you trying to give me pneumonia? You'd better pick up some tissues while you're at the store."
