Black Olives

I don’t like black olives or any olives for that matter.  I recall a fancy slice of bread that was topped with Cheese Whiz and one slice of a green olive right smack dab in the center and I would eat all around that olive.

Jennifer our youngest daughter loves black olives.  I used to buy them just for her.  She would open the can and start putting olives on each of her fingers…she would need help with a few.  Then she would show them off and proceed to eat them one by one.

She still enjoys black olives.

Her fingers are larger now or olives are smaller.

Yes she still likes olives.

Today is a voting day.  Jennifer is a Councilwoman and has thrown her hat into the Mayoral ring.  We wish her much luck!  Her whole campaign budget ($35.00) was spent on one sign that was placed in her yard because “Everyone that comes into town must pass by my house.”

  2. Best of luck to Jen! I'd vote for her on the basis of her campaign budget frugality alone!
    My grandsons like black olives, but only as finger decorations. They wear them around for awhile and wouldn't dream of eating them because they are "gross".

  6. I don't like olives at all either. Those seem to be one of those love 'em or hate 'em foods - - not much in between. We will look forward to the results of all the elections. I admire anyone who wants to run because people are not as appreciative of those willing to lead as they once were.

  10. Good luck to your daughter. I love olives, green and black, no pimento. When we lived in California we had olive trees and my husband would make olives for us----they have to be cured, can't be eaten fresh off the tree.

  11. Hope Jennifer wins the election! I think the world needs public officials who are intelligent like she is. As for olives - I never saw an olive I didn't love!
