"Until you've tried a Peach."
"An apple is an excellent thing - until you have tried a peach."
George du Maurier (1834-1896)
I've taken three peaches shirtless to the kitchen sink in rural Georgia. No need to peel or fuss. I wash them with clear water that runs just cool of warm and the fruit is ready. And so am I ready. This is to be my first experience eating the famed Georgia peaches, and timed just right for the height of the harvest. Juicy run down your face fleshy, luscious peaches and such big, big flagrant flavor. I'm a sticky succulent mess, but well worth every mouthful. I lick my lips. Guess I should clean up. Wipe off the keyboard, too. Tomorrow I'll pick three more...
