Well, on Monday evening, he showed up on my doorstep with his kids in tow, and a gift of a jar of strawberry jam, that he thought I might like. (He says he does a lot of canning.) Nice kids. They like my Halloween shows--son wanted to know where I keep my skeleton, when he's not in the yard.
I'm going to have to let him know about the plum tree and the apricot tree. I bet I get goodies back, in return.
