Wishing you ripe berries

Filed under: Parks — lessie @ 2:51 am

My sister is on a blackberry kick, or making-blackberry-jam kick. The bushes at Chris Taylor Park impressed her mightily.

“In another week, they’ll all be ripe!” she said. “Pick ’em for me and put them in the freezer.” My sister lives out of town.

I nodded vaguely, avoiding eye contact.

“That means no, doesn’t it?”

I grinned sheepishly. “Well…if the dogs and I happen to be here when they’re ripe, and we happen to have a bowl or container with us, and they don’t drag me away…There’s a chance I could have some for you.”

“A fat chance,” she said laughing.
