Overheard At Our House


Kimball: Mom, I just read in this book that if you want to live to be 100 years old, you'd better stop eating blueberries!

Me: Really? I thought they were supposed to be so good for you! (In fact, I only eat them for that reason. I don't love a blueberry unless it involves a muffin or scone.)

Kimball: Yes, it says that blueberries prevent the aging process-- so you'll never get to 100 if you eat them, I guess!

This photo was found on a great blog about growing your own blueberries--just in case you don't want to see 100!

Thank goodness you have some place to preserve this wisdom - because by the time you hit 100, it would be lost to the ages.

That's hilarious! I love starting my day with a good laugh. Here's one from Heidi's Reeve: We were studying Shakespeare and I was reading the poem "Tell me where is fancy bred, in the heart or in the head? And Reeve raised his hand to tell me that he knew where is fancy bred. At Great Harvest.

Laughing out loud - too funny. So does that mean if I start eating blueberries (I don't love them either unless they are in a muffin or some other goodie I shouldn't eat) I'll just stop aging and stay this age forever? Sounds good to me.

I don't love blueberries either. I have to force myself to eat them.
