On the 6th day of ...

Overheard one day:

Oak trees drop half their leaves in the fall and the rest in the spring. And then there's the spinners, crappers and nuts.

We have a big oak out in front of our house. I don't mind the leaves, but wow this was a banner year for acorns. I got beaned outside a couple of weeks ago - ouch! And I found one in the cellar the other day. How. Did. It. Get. There? I especially like to crunch the acorn caps - I will serpentine up the driveway to make sure I step on all the upside down caps, because it's fun and I haven't grown up yet.
