first and foremost: how about BAMA yesterday? RMFT!
okay, now that’s out of the way, nostalgia sunday time.
a staple in the firecracker household is the ranier cherry. they are sweet yellow cherries that are only in season for a few short weeks of the year and are delectable. my dad is obsessed with them and has passed along his affinity for them to the rest of the family.
as a little ginger child, my dad would drive me everywhere: school in the year, day care in the summers, riding lessons, and so on. he had this little maroon convertible that he loved; its top was always down in the summer and we went all over town in it. during ranier cherry season, he would fill up a cup with a handful of cherries to take with us on the way to an activity. we always shared them and spit the cherry pits out of the car (shh: they’re biodegradable). we have since gotten rid of the convertible, but i loved those days. just me and my daddy ready to take on the world, with the help of a few good cherries.
sometimes when i get bored now i go to car websites and build my own. lately, i’ve been only looking at convertibles. wouldn’t it be lovely to have one of these?
all i need now is one of these fine little cars and some ranier cherries. 🙂
