“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

A bit of yummy goodness & got ME puzzled!

One of the best parts of summer is....



BING CHERRIES!!!
Altho, you nearly have to take a loan out of the bank to purchase just a pound of 'em. But, their rich dark meat and sweet juicy texture...well, it's worth the cost.

MONDAY MORSELS


Have y'all seen this before? I don't know just HOW this works, but I never left the page once, and picked a card several different times [just glancing at one card in particular; each time a different card]...scrolled down within seconds and the guru with floppy ears and shifty eyes KNEW!!! If you have any inkling of how this works, I'd sure like to know your expertise on the subject. [not the floppy eared guru, but the card trick. lol]




Try it, if you don't believe me.

THANKS GO TO MOLLY AND MARI for explaining it....I never saw it.

  2. I love Cherries but a very wet summer in the UK means that as yet we do not have any local ripe ones.... I suspect they are going to suffer from our lack of sunshine when it comes to ripening.

  4. Oh and the card trick.... your card has disappeared because ALL the cards have disappeared. If you look the bottom set are not the same as the top set...same numbers but different suits and so no matter what card you pick... it is not going to be there. Clever deception of perception!

    1. Aha!!!! I'm sure glad you figured it out. The card trick may be clever, but YOU'RE the clever one. Thanks for clarifying and picking up on this. I've been trying to figure it out for I don't know HOW long. Yay. Now I can sleep better. Seriously.

  6. Cherries are my favorite! They were on sale this week and I really bought a huge pile since they are probably the only ones I'll get this year. You certainly got a great shot of that cherry!

  7. I love cherries and it's a bummer that not only cherries, but most fruits are going to be so expensive this year!
    The trick to the cards is that all the cards change!

  9. I love cherries, and I tried the card trick and missed why it worked! Very cute. I am particularly fond of Rainier cherries, which grow here in Washington state for a few weeks and then are gone. They are even sweeter than Bing cherries! :-)

    1. I don't think I've ever had those....I'm sure if I did I would've remembered them. Especially if they're sweeter than Bing.

  15. That is a beautiful cherry. I'm sorry to say I made myself sick on chocolate covered cherries as a child and have not been near a fresh cherry in years.

    1. When I was a kid, I'd have my dad drop me off at the cherry orchards so I could pick cherries and make money during the summer.
