Football Fever Abounds

"My two favorite teams are undefeated: 
the Lawrenceville Indians & Notre Dame, although I think the Indians
have a much tougher schedule. 

I'm sure L.H.S. could beat
Rice, Purdue, and Syracuse!"

Two Spoons

"I just picked a persimmon
from a tree in our back yard.
2 spoons....we know what that means!"

predict the severity of winter weather. When cut in half,
the persimmon seed will display one of three symbols."

(where wind "cuts" you like a knife). 

fork shape:  a mild winter

spoon shape:  a shovel to dig out the snow!"
