Staycation News Day 5

I think those taco bell guys have been taking acid or something......
So today I sewed a lot and then later on, I picked blackberries for 2 hours. I got so stuck in some thorny tree that I had to rip some fair amount of hair outa my head to escape. I felt like Gretel. It has gotten so wild and overgrown out back, that I had to work pretty darned hard wading through waist high grass and thistles, and finally found my two favorite shade berry trees and there they sat, untouched and the vines bursting with ripies!!!!
I picked almost 10 pounds of blackberries all by myself!!!!
And yes, I went to taco bell today. Shhh! Don't tell Mr Ratburn!
I have to go now, there's a spork poking me in the foot.....

Ten pounds, that's a lot of those delicious berries. We have some in our garden as well, but they are not pickie. What our garden is plentyful of is Rasberries. I can stand on a single spot a pic 2 liters (0.53 Gallons).

I shall not tell anybody about TACO BELL. huuussh

Yo quero Taco Bell!! Makes me think of the little Chihuahua dog doing their commercials.

Blackberry preserves yummo or blackberry vino even better.

Hello,

I'm a writer in Texas working on a book about staycations. It's not a heavy book, just a fun book with ideas and inspiration for people considering a staycation. I wondered if you might want to share your story. I can use your full name or just a first name. If you're interested, you can reach me through my profile. Thanks.
