The Missus Herself and I were discussing the characterization of California as the "land of the fruit and nut". I mentioned that I had perhaps insulted those of my readers who hail from the Golden State.
The Missus pointed out that where the Naviguesser lives there is a Blue Diamond nut processing plant. And thousands of acres of almond trees. So quite literally he lives in the land of nuts.
The WSO and Big Time are surrounded by many acres of lemon and orange trees. So they live, again literally, in the land of fruits.
So yes, we would view this as the Land of the Fruit and Nut. You know, kind of like how Israel was described to Moses, the land of milk and honey.
Perhaps I should hire the Missus Herself to be my editor.
Oh, the flight from San Fran to Fresno, which was at night, it was absolutely excellent. We were on this beauty -
I'll be back, with more stories of California.
