Yes, They're Starting To Arrive

They started arriving late last week. A large number arrived over the weekend with great fanfare, pageantry, and splendor. They will be arriving for a while and that’s fine with me.

They will not get the coverage the Olympics did but they must be drawing national as well as international attention. Supposedly, fifteen thousand reporters are in town. This is a big deal for Colorado. It makes you proud to live in the state. I for one will miss them when they’re gone.

Yes, that’s right Colorado Peaches have hit the stands.

Now if we can just keep them away from that bunch at the Democratic National Convention.

I was going to say I wouldn't drive to the end of the lane to see that but now that you bring up Colorado peaches I might drive to your house for a cobbler.

Our area eagerly awaits the arrival of the Porter peaches. These are grown around Porter, Oklahoma and are the absolute best in the world. They started being offered at roadside stands last week and the best thing about getting them, you don't have to go near the DNC to have them.

Oh Ralph, you just made me hungry. As soon as I finish here I will make me a hot dog and have a preach.
I bought four yesterday, they looked sooooo good. Of course I paid more for mine than you do in Colorado, they were 79¢ a pound. The one I will eat weighs 5.2 oz.
I don't think it is a Colorado peach though, the label says "EASTERN - #4403L - PRODUCT OF USA - YELLOW PEACH."

I hope the democrats don't eat them all, they will drive the price of peaches up just like they drove up the price of gas [:-)].

Mrs. Jim watched Michelle's speech last night. She said it was the same tune, same words (ho hum) that she always says. (I said it must be like those of Condoleezza Rice's where she always says the same thing, rubber stamp GWB and how good he is!) (She had 'no comment.')
I couldn't watch the convention proceedings, I wouldn't anyway, as I was at the church spending the night with homeless people. We have fifteen this week, five adults and ten kids.

Thanks for peeking in on my Ruby Red Tuesday post. Janell has one also. Your peaches could qualify.

Ralph - Mrs. LZ will not make me a peach pie UNLESS she can secure Colorado Peaches for the occasion. So... they must be the best! ~ jb///

Nothing like fresh peaches. I've never had a Colorado one before. This year they are especially good around here. It was a good year for the peaches and apples.

I have always wanted to visit Colorado. Looks like you just gave me another reason! I will just have to remember to get there during Peach season!
Save me a bowl and ice cream!
