Roses & Raspberries

My parent’s receive a local newspaper containing a section called "Roses & Raspberries". People can write in and praise or give the smackdown to the appropriate party that. The hubby is particularly entertained by this and reads it every time we are visiting. Here is a particularly entertaining tidbit from today’s paper that my mother read to me over the phone:

“• A bushel of raspberries to the - - -wipes who tossed loaded McDonald's drink cups out of their car, hitting me in the head in a totally unprovoked assault as I was pulling stray weeds from the curbside lawn in front of my Woolnough Street house around 10:15 a.m. Sunday, July 20. Had you "gentlemen" not rushed off as you did, I would've loved to have invited you inside for knuckle sandwiches - with plenty of relish! Since you'd served me "soft" drinks, it's only fair that I return the favor - in spades! - K. Delano”

God bless yer spunk, K. Delano.

In honor of the post, here are some "Roses & Raspberries" inspired Etsy finds!
