“Man is the only kind of varmint sets his own trap,
baits it, then steps in it.”

Remember this image from early Spring?
(my spring crop looking ever so hopeful / Julie Cook / 2018)
This was just one of the four apple trees burgeoning with the hoped-for abundance
of a season that was not quite yet to be.
There was excitement, as well as anticipation, both abounding as thoughts of pies, stews
and all sorts of baked treats swirled around our thoughts.
The air just seemed heavy with sweetness and cinnamon…
That is until this week…
Out of all of those hoped for beautiful apples from those four fully ladened trees,
only 7 measly apples have been salvageable.
There is a culprit…or perhaps even multiple culprits.
But the question remains…Whom?
I suspect all three…but the teeth marks are telling.
This tale is to be continued as I go about my stealthy sleuth work…
If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today,
the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.
All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:
