HHmmmm.... Persimmion!!



My wife came home from and said, "have a job for you" as she handed a bag to me. She explained one of her co-workers had a cracked permission pestle. This was serious. "Whats he want me to do?" I asked. "He would like you do make him a new one- exactly like this one, it was his grandmother's and he told me all about being knee-high and 'helping' his grandmother make persimmon pudding. He'll pay you," she added. She had me at persimmon. "He would like to know about how much it would cost."

"Well.... I could make it out of maple. It's a nice hardwood, tight grain, well behaved, makes good treenware.... I think this is worth at least one persimmon pie...maybe two!"

After the long sigh, "I'll tell him.......," she said.
