I’m not sure how but I forgot to mention the honey.

Lynn, the friend who took me to the Madeline Tosh shop, gifted me before we parted with a jar of orange honey that had come from her late mother-in-law. I’ve wondered if there was a story behind it–did she have hives? Orange trees? And did I mention to Lynn that the fresh orange juice we bought in Ft Worth was better than any we have had this year  in California? There was this surprised moment of, Wow, that’s good. The $8 a gallon organic  stuff at Costco doesn’t begin to touch it–Texas does oranges right. (And Dallas Fort Worth airport very, very badly–the GPS kept trying to steer us onto former roads that were now concrete crumbles, to chained-across no-man’s lands; we spent an hour in long circles trying to get to the car rental return in the dark alongside a few other wanderers just as lost. The place is city-sized unto its construction-mangled self.)

But enough of the whine. It was so good to spend time with those we hold dear.

And Lynn’s honey was as exquisite as the oranges it came from. I had to put down the computer, typing that, to go sneak another twirled-forkful.

Sounds wonderful – except for the GPS and the un-roads…

mmmmmm, honey! I remember as a child the man that used to come to my grandma’s back door and bring honey (and honeycomb) from his hives — it was wonderful

as for Dallas roads — we spent one long wandering afternoon trying to find our way to a hotel there a few years back when we were doing an art show — made us crazy that they don’t number their highway exits!!

glad you found your way

Yum! Honey! Too bad aboit the GPS goof. Seems that’s a theme lately. Just had friends tell me yesterday about getting sent way, way the wrong way by GPS while traveling through Nevada. Ah, the miracles of modern technology.
