We went to see my dad today and we stopped by his 'real' house (we visited at the condo mostly). The apples are growing as you can see. Seeing the apples grow each year is special for me...my mom had said we moved from our house in Litchfield 'right as the apples were going to grow' (it takes the trees a few years to ramp up)...and then my parents had put the next house on the market again 'as the apples were going to grow'....I know that disappointed her. They ended up not selling and then she passed away. So when I see the beautiful apple trees growing their apples in our yard (even if they arent that tasty), it reminds me of her.... and it is wonderful that AJ and Grampy can pick the apples and I hope she is looking down on them smiling.
