Berry Picking Adventure Time

June 29th, 2013 at 08:36 am

Yesterday afternoon DS and I ventured to the rural county up north for strawberry picking. The conditions were perfect: sunny weather with ripe, gorgeous red fruit. I found the best rows to pick in, getting five pounds within 45 minutes, and I was selective about my berries too. The boy managed one pound.

DS found a woman's credit card so we're going to the credit union's head branch up there to return it. A quick internet check shows the woman lives close to the berry farm and the credit union, but it's safer to return it to the credit union as she may have moved.

We went to an old-time ice cream shoppe in the nearest small town for Coke floats. I hardly ever have pop, once a month, but on a hot dry day I well understand how Coca-Cola got to be popular. It doesn't take much to send DS into ecstasy: baseball, ice cream, and sunny days.

Our dinner expenditure came to under $10: I was busy washing and hulling the strawberries for freezing and didn't have time for cooking, so I made chicken salad which we had on croissants. I like no-cook summer meals.

    Oh, that was very kind of you to make sure her card was returned to her through the bank. I imagine she was freaking out if she realized she'd lost it.

    @LuckyRobin especially as she had left the back of it unsigned. Someone dishonest could have done a lot of damage by signing the card...

    I bet she will appreciate you finding and returning that card.

    Sounds like a great day overall and you were a good sam as well!
