Orange You Glad to Know This?
When I die and go to heaven (cross my fingers) I want to have an orange tree again. I grew up with a couple of them in our yard and a neighbor with an orchard full of them. Every year we would have bags of ripe oranges to juice. Or when I was hungry or thirsty while mowing the lawn, I would pluck one from the tree. I think they were a type of mandarin orange. They were small with loose skin and seeds. And oh so sweet and juicy. The difference between those ripe off the tree oranges and what I get in the grocery store now, makes me want to weep.
