Red Apples and Red Flannel. A Perfect New Hampshire day.

Although a bit chilly, it was a lovely New Hampshire weekend with trees in their full Fall bloom:  red, orange, yellow and, still, green.  To celebrate the season, we had the MOST DELICIOUS huge red apples,* freshly picked by one of the volunteers.  I've never tasted an apple so good.  And so, keeping with the Autumn-color theme, I will tell you about the gentleman in the red flannel.  He is a Korean war veteran and he had this to say to me:  "People say that Americans don't care, but you folks show that they do."  What a kind thing to say!   As for the woman in red, isn't she wonderful?  A lovely red blouse, a red thermos, and a red apple.  See you on Thanksgiving Day at the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration. 
[*BTW:  we didn't JUST have apples.  We also had eggplant parm; pasta with broccoli; salad; green beans; home-made pumpkin bread; and for dessert:  chocolate mouse cake and apple pie.]
