July Is National Peach Month!

July is Natioinal Peach Month

 

Parker County in Weatherford, TX had their annual Peach Festival and today, July 10th was the day for the festival! This was my first time and I couldn't wait! From Flower Mound it's about a 60 mile drive. By the time I got into the city of  Weatherford I saw signs for Shuttle Buses. Therefore, I decided it would be a smart idea to park and jump on the Shuttle Bus which turned out to be Yellow School Buses. Since I was one of those kids who had to walk to school for what seemed like about 100 miles in the snow and bitter cold in Chicago, riding the school bus was a real treat! 

 

I was the first one to get on the bus and sat in the first seat behind the bus driver. The last person to get on the bus was also alone and politely asked, is this seat taken?  It was a real Forest Gump moment! We introduced ourselves and talked all the way to the entrance of the Parker County Peach Festival. We were both very excited!

 

Bushels of Peaches and volunteers were ready for the crowds. Passing by those peaches was a real temptation and I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into a fresh Parker County home grown peach. But I decided to wait and see what else they had offer and enjoy the festival. Honestly, I didn't know what to expect!

 

 

I spotted this dog in doggie shoes and started taking photos. I guess you can tell in photo #2 the dog was not happy about that. So I asked the owner if she wouldn't mind if I could take photos of her beautiful dog and I introduced myself and we had a very nice conversation. By the looks of her dog's face in photo #3, I guess you could say, I learned my lesson and asking for permission was the right thing to do because the dog suddenly became very, very happy!

 

 

The Parker County Peach Fest had lots to see, smell, taste, and hear. There were free smell tests for Chocolate, Strawberry, and Rainbow Funnel Cakes. I could see them and smell them but I did not buy one. You could buy Peach Salsa, lots of different types to choose! Many different types of Peach drinks, like Peach Lemonade, Peach Iced Cafe Latte, and Alcoholic Peach Cocktails. I enjoyed the Peach Iced Latte. And then there was the band! I thought the audience was more entertaining but that's just my opinion. All in all, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and it was really fun to be in a crowd again. People were so willing to talk to each other without fear. Nobody uttered words about Covid-19 or topics discussed on the news channels. Together, we were one big crowd of every type of nationality and we were having a really good time.

 

When it was time for me to go, a very nice young man offered his golf cart service to get me back to the bus safely. He was the perfect gentleman! It was such a treat for me. Once again, I was the first one in line to get on the bus and people were so courteous, kind, and respectful towards each other. Again, I took the seat behind the bus driver and the rest of the people got on the bus. The last person was an older gentleman, and he asked me, is this seat taken?  I had the biggest smile on my face and said, no please sit down. He was not shy at all. We had a lot in common and he about talked my ear off but it was really nice to share a conversation with someone who was just as glad to get out and about as I was. 

 

By the time I got home, I was very hungry. I made myself a chicken salad and added my fresh Parker County Peaches and some cherries that I bought too. It was simple and easy. Mix white chicken meat with diced celery and mayonnaise. slice one peach and spread out some cherries. It made the perfect summer in July light meal and it made me smile thinking about what a wonderful day it was and how great it was to socialize with real people and nobody was on Zoom. Come to think of it, I didn't see anyone talking on their Cell Phones either! July is National Peach month and I hope yours is absolutely Peachy!!!!

Good morning, Patricia... I'm not a peach-eater... at least not fresh peaches, but I still would have enjoyed the Peach Festival. And I love, love, love the doggie pictures.

How wonderful! That sounds like an amazing day, and I'm sure it was so nice to be out and about. By the way, your photo of the chicken salad looks not only delicious but looks like a smiling face. :-)

Good morning Patricia. Now I am anxous to bite into a juicy peach! By the way, walked to school in Chicago. When my parents moved to the suburbs the only thing that changed was the walk was 4 blocks further. Enjoy your day.

Michael Jacobs - Peaches from CA, SC, and Parker County in Weatherford, TX have been available at my local Farmer's Markers and Grocery Stores. There really is a difference where the peaches are grown! I haven't been disappointed in any of them! 

 

John Pusa - Any day now! I'll bet you can't wait! The CA peaches I'm getting in Flower Mound, TX are smaller than years prior. Sometimes, smaller peaches surprise me! I hope you get some good ones this year!

 

Bob Crane - Don't you love it when something as simple as a peach can bring back fond memories of loved ones? That's really peachy!!!

 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - My state is celebrating National Peach Month in July; others are celebrating it in August. The way I see it, July and August extends the opportunity to purchase peaches and try new recipes too! No matter how you slice it, they ARE delicious!

Endre Barath, Jr. - thanks for dropping by! WP you are always welcome to stop by my blog, sit next to me on a bus, or just be that perfect Gentleman here on AR. You have such a lovely smile and since you showed us your baby photo, that smile never goes away. It's your signature look that makes others feel simply peachy!

 

Nina Hollander, Broker - I fell in love with that dog! His (or her) little booties were very smart looking and stylish too! Pets like people have distinct personalities. I was so glad the dog and I made friends! 

 

Kat Palmiotti - Ha! Ha! It was my intention to make it look like a smiley face. I'm glad you picked up on that! Yes! It was a really great day! I also bought peaches for my neighbors who have been very nice to me. Their twin boys have been mowing my grass, which is so helpful! The mom was so surprised and happy because I thought of them. Life is peachy when you make good neighbors!

 

Brian England - There's nothing in a jar or a can of peaches that compares to fresh peaches right off the tree! They are good, healthy, and delicious! I hope you get to have some while they are in season.

Wayne Martin - So, I had nothing to be jealous of when my friends started moving to the Suburbs? Walking four more blocks to get to school had to be a real bummer! My High School was a further walk than the elementary school but instead of passing Candy Stores, I walked past restaurants with Soda Fountains and I did stop in there with friends on my way home. Come to think of it, walking to grade school or HS brings back sweet memories and soggy wet boots. 

 

Rocky Dickerson - I knew about the Peach Festival for many years while living in TX but never went until now. 2020 taught us all, you can never assume anything! Not only was it a peachy adventure, every single moment brightened my day meeting great people also excited about venturing out!

 

Will Hamm - I think if there was ever a contest for the best REALTOR in Aurora, CO, you would win! You're always cooking up something delicious for your clients. Peach Cobbler is very special treat and you are special too!

 

Tammy Lankford, I'm glad I inspired you! I like to make things simple and easy and healthy too! And I add fruit too! I hope your grandsons are smothering you with loving hugs and kisses!

Myrl Jeffcoat - Being featured in your Photos Group brightens up my face in the most peachy way. You made my day! I've noticed dogs are really styling these days with well made fashion designs. I hate to say it, many are dressed better than their owners. But the consolation is, I know those dogs are loved and treated well. For many years, I pet sit for friends of mine and I was always concerned about their dogs feet on the scorching hot pavement. When I brought them back inside, I had a wet towel ready to cool off their feet and they loved it! By the way, the peaches are delicious!!!

 

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint - I didn't buy any Peach Salsa but now I wish I did! If they sell it in Idaho, I hope you find it and it tastes delicious! When it comes to eating and sleeping, we should always be selective of what we purchase. That's my motto and I'm sticking to it!

 

George Souto - You are long overdue for some good peaches. I hope they come your way soon because you deserve it!

 

Roy Kelley - I can't wait to hear what Dolores makes for you. Whatever it is, it's bound to be tasty and delicious!!!
