Unpared Pears (290/365)

“There are only ten minutes in the life of a pear when it is perfect to eat.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson (American, essayist, philosopher, poet, & leader of the Transcendentalist movement, 1803–1882)

TIME: 7:23 PM
PLACE: New Athens, IL

A fairly quiet Saturday, compared to last week’s with its family reunion.  Tonight we went as a family to a friend’s surprise 50th birthday party at a Knights of Columbus hall.  The man is a big Dallas Cowboy fan and the hall was decorated with a blue, silver and white theme.  These pears were piled in a bowl on the head table.  Why pears?  I have no idea, but I’m sure there was a good reason for them.  One thing that I can’t get over is the fact that it only cost $1.25 for a draft beer in the bar.  Sweet action!  I think I need to drink there more often.
