Last night I had a sundae for dessert.
As I lifted off the bright red cherry from the whip cream
which was layered over chocolate sauce
which was layered over ice cream
I thought of the wood of a cherry tree
–wood that I worked with for a number of years
to make things that folks would buy:
especially boxes of different sizes and shapes.
I worked it along with walnut and oak and maple.
I also made spreaders that were made to be used with spreadable stuff like butter and peanut butter.
Oh yes, how I love to spread peanut butter!
That is one thing I can do even now and I still have some spreaders made of cherry.
Though I cannot make those spreaders anymore
I can still make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches which I really like better then eating cherries.
