Peaches and Football

Tired homemaker refuses to bottle peaches this year claiming they are unhealthy, expensive, sticky and make her arms itch.

7:04 p.m...

Football and peach fan turns on the game, adjusts the table for a better view and begins to peel. "How many cups of water to how much sugar?" he asks. "Light syrup." I reply. "6 cups water to 2 cups sugar."

9:11 p.m.

7 jars of golden globes slip into their hot water bath.

Tennesee 10 - Pitsburg 7

Gotta love that guy.


  1. I love this! You've got a good man there!

  2. Beautiful peaches. They are art in a jar.

  3. That sounds like me! I refused to do any canning this fall, and yet I see all of this lovely produce and I keep weakening though I have not fallen yet. lol ;)
