Go on. Go on, have a bite.
When the crisp air arrives and the leaves begin to fall, it's time for a trip to the apple orchard! All week we had been telling little dirt dawg that we would go this weekend to get our pumpkins, apples, donuts and cider. A perfect fall morning seemed to beckon everyone and their brother out to the apple orchard.
Trying to beat the rush or just on autopilot after next to no sleep with Dirrty Feather sprouting new choppers, we hit an early road block when one of Michigan's finest pulled me over and said, "Son, do you know you were doing 73 in a 55?" "Eh..no sir." Looking inside the vehicle the ocifer then goes into some diatribe about how if your a Michigan fan, those Ohio State Troopers are pretty unfair so they in turn like to return the favor and if you are going north that there are signs indicating you to slow down in mulitple spots. After his rant, which left me confused as to whether or not I was going to get a ticket, he let me off with a warning...WHEW!
Finally arriving at our destination, a quick ingestion of pure sugar from donuts and cider, left little dirt dawg and dirrty feather ready to pick our pumpkin and fill the bushel of bags with an assortment of both eating and cooking apples (is there a difference?)
"Dad, the Red Delicious is a cultivar of apple. It is the most widely grown apple in the world, red with darker red streaks, and five "points" on the bottom.. " (wikipedia)
"Look, it is red and shiny, I should eat it!"
