BE VERY, VERY WARY …
Of invaders in your apple baskets!
Mlle. Renee has been on red alert the last several days for invaders, terrorists, and things that might go bump in the apple basket that sits on the kitchen table. Every time she comes in the house from playing outside, she scours the entire kitchen from top to bottom with emphasis to the apple basket that resides in the middle of the kitchen table.
Now, Mlle. Renee does not particularly like apples. Wouldn’t touch one unless you wrapped it in bacon! So why is she so protective of the apples that reside on the table. I like to think that she’s just looking out for my welfare, but I think she’s just checking to see if any of the apples have disappeared. She knows that if an apple has been used, I might have made apple toast. While she doesn’t like apples, she does have a strong attachment to whole wheat bread that has been buttered, covered with sliced apples sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and baked in the oven to near apple pie taste perfection. She also knows I always give her the last bite of mine when I eat a slice.
So be sure to check your apples for intruders.
