Chestnuts

I love finding chestnuts. Whenever I spot one or two in the forest, it gives me joy and I pick them up. But today, on the way from my home in Vilnius to the supermarket, I found more than I had ever hoped for. I had to stop picking them up because my pants’ pockets were sagging to the ground, drawing me with them and into a less than flattering appearance.

How much happiness can come from little things!

But now I have too many. What do to with them? Does anybody have some interior design ideas? Or better yet, an interior designer herself? – If not, I may have to use them for military purposes.

      Hey! Watch it!

    • Don’t worry, Ambassador, I THOROUGHLY resemble that remark. As in, I was Grace Lee Whitney’s escort on a cruise in 1987, among many other stories. So, Peace And Long Life to you, Sir! :)

      @John: Nice save. Congratulations! You narrowly avoided a Vulcan nerve-pinch.

    • Does it help that I hated Robin Curtis’s Saavik, but thoroughly enjoyed meeting her? She’s a funny, sweet woman – but just can’t stand up to Kirstie Alley. IMHO, of course. :D

      …said someone who himself is obsessed with goats. (“Night on Earth”, anyone?)

    • Not obsessed, just willing to be good friends with our cloven-hooved neighbors! (And cats, and horses, and donkey, and…..) :D

  4. Oh I love your photos:-) I might make a house for us with chestnuts and whenever somebody wants to attack us you can shoot them with your chestnut gun!!
