Who Knew?

This past weekend, my wife and I co-hosted with another couple, a “Jack & Jill” wedding shower  for the daughter of friends of ours.  Even though we were experiencing a bit of a monsoon that afternoon, just about everyone who said they were attending did. We were even blessed by a few folks showing up that we hadn’t heard from, but we were well prepared.  A good time was had by all.

One of our guests was a young man who recently married the daughter of another friend.  We were making small talk and someone asked him where he was from. He shared that he came from just up the road in rural  Monetta, SC  (Home of the Big Mo) and that his family owned what used to be the biggest Asparagus farm in the US, but now it was only the biggest in South Carolina. 

Asparagus farms in South Carolina?   Who knew?

My initial thought, and please forgive me, was that he was exaggerating a bit. It was a good story, but since I’m not a fan of asparagus, I didn’t give it a second thought.

Then, earlier today, I saw this cartoon and figured that it was a sign that I should tell the  story.

Just a few minutes of research gave me all I needed.

Humbled once again, Dylan was telling the truth.

Who gets the reference in the cartoon?

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.
