Happy St. Patrick's Day "The Top Of The Morning To You" Its a chilly morning here today and foggy can't see the Marsh from Window has an Erie look to it. Well when the sun comes out guess I better work in the yard today got to do spring clean up and put down some fertilizer and weed prevent er, but if I stop the crabgrass then I won't have much of a lawn.
Patti's cell phone ringing "Hey Tom its my brothers Wayne and Bobby do you want to go to Columbus Market" "Yeah I'll go with you and your brothers" Wow the luck of the Irish getting out of chores and it was my wife's idea. Her brother Bobby is up from Tennessee with her parents for a surprise family gathering tomorrow for her brother David's wife she just got her doctors degree in education and is head of the Monmouth County Adult Education and career programs.
Well Wayne and Bobby are here lets go its a 10 mile venture to Columbus Market in Burlington County

I usually make this trip monthly and when the weather breaks about every Saturday, for the produce market however so much more there are acres of out side flea market booths, inside are permanent stores and one big section of Amish goods. lets go see.
Oh my gosh!!! the aroma is so astounding, fresh backed breads,pies,cakes cookies and free samples try this hot oatmeal cookie the girl just took from the oven and sample the homemade peanut butter this Amish man has just put out numerous flavors of peanut butter. and the fresh homemade candies are drifting my way I'm going to gain 20lbs. just from inhaling.
