The Box

We got a delivery today; a flat heavy box. We couldn't imagine what was in it!

It was a food variety box by Harry & David, featuring their famous pears! No card or name attached.

Turns out it is a Christmas gift from our friend Andy. He is in his 90's and very frail, having fallen a couple times. Since his wife died over a year ago, I have been calling him every night at 10:00, to make sure he is alright. I sure didn't expect anything in return, especially this lovely!

“That a slender wooden tree twig can give birth to luscious pears, apples, peaches remains an extraordinary feat.”
