The hunt today is on the theme “Juicy.”
I thought about this theme all week. I expect we will be seeing lots of fruit, especially luscious ripe fruit. I’m inclined to join in on that. We produce juicy grapes every year now, in our vineyard.
We put them through our stemmer/crusher, and they prove their juiciness.
Here you can see them in all their glory, in the fermenting container, right before we pitched the yeast and began the fermentation process.
They make a fabulous jelly, too.
But there is another connotation of “juicyness” that attracts me for this theme. The second definition in Webster for “juicy” is “Interesting, racy, or titillating.” I aspire to being a juicy older woman, and I have lots of friends who fit that bill. They are interesting, they are involved in relationships where they titillate their partner and are titillated by them, they are not above a certain raciness. I’d like to think that I also fit that description. And so, a selection of my juicy friends.
We’re all well over fifty. And we are juicy — men too!
