big food. (That’s a joke. Ranch Style Beans is a ConAg product.)
See. If all you’d grown this year was one measly Baby Round Zucchini plant, and one night on your way out of Starkvegas you decided to skip going to the Hog, but you still needed a veggie to grill, and you ‘mentally’ scanned the garden, and you cut the Baby Round Zucchini that had accumulated in the crisper into thick slices… and brushed them with honey butter … . You would have enjoyed The Best Vegetable Ever.
While grilling, Mr. Big Food reported that the fire was really hot although he’d not built a particularly hot fire. It was fairly warm at 8pm. The termo-meter on the wall read about 99 but it had been sitting in the sun for a few hours.
During the day it was much warmer. The thermo-meter in the truck jumped at least five degrees from the Farm to Starkvegas. The place right before Rick’s Furniture on Stark Rd. has a time/temp/ad thing. It read 107.
So I was headed to Starkvegas and was passing a small van on the 4-lane and what do you know?
I saw this weird rock explosion and the next thing I knew the van’s left rear tire blew out, as I was passing. So I slowed down, watched in my rear view mirror, pulled over, backed up… . She was very nice. On our way to Rick’s Furniture where her husband works, we talked about how many kids we have and what we were planning for Independence Day. Of course, we talked about how hot is is. So early. She and her family are just going to lay low this holiday. So are we.
Mind you, I saw it happen.
Oh. I also told her about Daughter C’s battery/alternator problem and how some nice guy cutting his grass into whose yard she had landed had helped her.
The first thing she did was tell me she was o.k. And the next thing she did was thank me. She said that in today’s world, not too many people would have stopped. I find that hard to believe.
I haven’t exactly been on a roll lately, and I recognize that. Whew. At least we have a Farm.
