As a family we were talking about what we'd like to do this summer, and the boys get to each pick a couple of things. Gus, my oldest, chose various sports-related stuff. Cathy and me getting stuff down around the house and taking day-trips. Floyd, however, had his own idea. He said that he wants to have a food fight. That's right, a food fight. This is not something we talk about, so I have no idea where he got it... but food fight it is. So, some afternoon, we're going to have his friends over, set up a table with plenty of food (out on the lawn, of course), and let them go at it. (We may require eye protection). Hey, why not?
Any thoughts about what kind of food we should "serve"?
I've been reading and enjoying Joyce Kendrick's blog. A nice mixture of postings about Christianity and her everyday life.
It's still strawberry season, and my colleague, David Weakliem, dropped off eight pounds of fresh-picked ones last week. Along with a quart of whipping cream, they did not last long. He also sent me this quotation about strawberries:
Izaak Walton's 1655 comment, "We may say of Angling as Dr. Boteler said of Strawberries; Doubtless God could have made a better berry, but doubtless God never did," is perhaps the nicest use of the word strawberry in its history.
Speaking of food, here are five foods to avoid. I think that this is all that Homer Simpson eats.
