My Mom and Dad used to live in Florida--
Every Christmas they would ship us a bushel of oranges--a Christmas gift--
After they passed-- we began to order the oranges --
It is always kind of "iffy"--Will they arrive and not be frozen?
Well, they did--this AM---
The computer said they had arrived!
It is minus 19 C and snowing---
-----and no oranges at our door--
On went my parks, and boots , and out to the gate I went, in the dark---- and--there was the bushel of fruit , inside the gate, sitting in the snow--
All I could think of was, "Who would leave a bushel of fruit outside ?----that they must be frozen for sure-
After dragging in the box----Himself and I opened it--and-----LOW AND BEHOLD, THE FRUIT WAS NOT FROZEN-
In fact, it looked like this!
I mean, it had travelled from Florida , all the way thru the US --then 6 hrs North of Toronto---- and---- it is Okay!
We are so lucky!
Now, most of you will wonder why on earth we buy this---
Oranges in the North are terrible--- just awful---- so------once a year we like to eat a decent orange-
Lord love a Duck! --Now if that new DELL computer arrives safely---we will feel so blessed--
----something like this - shoulda been on the box-----but--it wasn't!
