  • My days spent way out in our mountains are never the same. One thing leads to another, and the story pops into my head. I discovered the so necessary candied fruits for fruitcakes are now for sale in our grocery stores. No, I don’t make fruitcakes any more, but I do enjoy eating same. Then I read in the newspaper that a Russian satellite is breaking apart and will soon drop on our good earth, in pieces, no less. Apparently it did no damage when it landed.
