Back in 2003 the Grand Girls and their parents would come to visit Minnesota from Nebraska. One of their favorite summer activities was to pick raspberries with their Grandfather. I have a photo “someplace” of them all …but couldn’t find it. No doubt I put it away someplace safe and sound…just cannot find it.
But I did find the girls picking berries. I would give them cups and off they would go.
Paige and Maddie
They would pick and eat and share. Paige was quite concerned about bears. I stood out on the driveway and shouted at the bears to pack their bags get out of the woods and move to Hawaii. Years later Paige remembered that and began to cry when she heard her parents were going to Hawaii…of course that is where all the bears were. Grandma sent them there.
The wild raspberries are ripening now, Far Guy brought me one last night…I had saved two for him…I need to pick some everyday. They bring back sweet memories. If the berries are hanging low on the branches Chance will help himself.
