Quite a few years ago,
Sweeties' Grandma Ruth
wanted me to have
her peach crate.
Not just any peach crate, mind you.
But a peach crate that her sweetie - Frank,
had worked his magic on.
And an abundance of everything.
Including pies - lots of pies.
the 'peach-crate carrier',
magic added by her Sweetie.
He took an old peach crate, added a couple of bent pipe handles,
Now, at the time
that she wanted to pass on her peach crate,
this made me sad.
In my mind, that meant that she knew
she was no longer able or wanted to
make all of those baked goods to take along.
