Oh how nice that would be, to feel that "i'm in heaven" feeling:( Living with an allergy really sucks sometimes. Runs out of thread before the hives begin.

Amy -- You just brought back the fondest memory. My grandfather, my Dad's dad, was a bit of a scamp; he loved nothing more than poking fun -- never maliciously -- but with a real twinkle in his eye.

Once, we were on vacation (Ocean City NJ) and went to the large farmer's market @ 34th and West Ave. Among our purchases was corn, all fresh and ready, under a large sign reading JERSEY CORN -- PICKED TODAY!!

... Which was fine until Pop-pop's glance happened to fall under the table, where there was a supply of to-be-sold ears, sitting nicely in a crate marked IMPORTED FROM PUERTO RICO.

Of course, he just HAD to poke that crate out from underneath with his toe and in a voice intentionally loud enough to be heard, carped: "Wow. Look at this Jersey Corn!! Just out of the box from San Juan!!"

Within seconds, the manager had some hapless stock-kid there in an apron, dragging those crates away, red in the face.

No wonder we used to get escorted OUT of a lot of places when going w/my Pop-pop..............

LOL! Excellent story, Dan!! Pop-Pop sounds like my kinda guy! :)

I can't believe they actually tried to get away with that. Sheesh!!

That settles it then. I'm having corn and sliced beefsteaks loaded with salt & pepper for dinner!!
