Six Degrees of Obama Peaches

These are possibly the most precious peaches. To others I have been referring to them as my Obama Peaches. The peaches found their way to me via my splendid friend and fellow artist, M. She brought them to the gym one morning along with a large dignified zucchini. On a following gym day I heard from M that Obama had stopped at a local orchard market. She so lovingly picked these peaches at the same market that Obama purchased peaches for all the reporters in tow. It pleases me to know that our peaches were once waiting in the bushels next to the same peaches that would feed the campaign trail paparazzi. I can imagine his simple pleasure in enjoying these pretty peaches full of the taste of summer...and the kindness of friends.

Hey, I really hope you love the tumbler. The rest of the bunch are headed to Minneapolis for The American Pottery Festival.
Hang in there at the old job. I hope you figure out a better balance soon.

The best peaches around. I just wish I would have bought them 2 days later. I can't believe Obama was less than 2 miles from my house, and I missed seeing him. I hope you enjoy the oh so sweet and juicy peaches!!
