Food For Thought

I can’t help wondering just what sexual orientation has to do with separation of church and state. I see no connection between gays serving openly in the military and children praying in school– can you? And why certain people are so positive that their own “family values” are everybody’s ideal. Every family has their own set of values, right down to how they want their chicken fried and how much mustard to put in the potato salad. And I have to laugh out loud when that person says he would, “Cut their pay in half and send them home early.” Without their vote on the matter? Really?

Walkin'

The pickles caught my eye because they were out of place among the flashlights, watch fobs and assorted small tools on the counter of the local hardware store. “Gourmet Rickles Pickles,” the label read, “crunch’em, munch’en, lunch’em.”
“Never heard of these before,” I said to no one in particular as I rolled a jar in my hand. The sales clerk overheard me and offered that they came from the nearby town of Coralville, and I bought a jar.
It was love at first bite.
