Food For Thought

It’s hard to find good black walnuts that are ready to use. I sometimes find them at farmers markets, church bazaars, or in the classified ads, but somebody else usually gets there first and they’re all gone by time I arrive. I usually end up shopping in a health food store or the Stringtown Grocery near Kalona, where they are much fresher and considerably cheaper than those bitty little packages in the grocery store.

Maybe, for example, I could assign the role to Gene, the somewhat gruff manager at the time of the Solon American Legion, which is located two buildings and an alley over from my apartment.
