Thursday Portrait.....











.
.
.
I sold a Malibu to a lady that originally came from
Michigan's Upper Peninsula. As we were making small
talk, I mentioned that I just LOVED the Thimbleberry Jam
that the Monks made up in the Kewanaw Peninsula of the UP!
Later that afternoon as she arrived for delivery, SHE brought me in this
jar of unspeakable delight!!
This half-pint jar sells for 8 Bucks!!!!
It's worth EVERY PENNY.
It also reminds me of something....
But I just can't remember what.
Oh well...See ya Friday.
Peace...!!!

(Now don't forget...NO Flash 55 NEXT Friday. BLACK FRIDAY!)

Don't think i've ever tasted a thimbleberry, in jam or otherwise. Looks yummy, though.

Hopefully see you for F55...gotta come up with one first, though. :)

Oh yum - berry good

Thanks G for always giving us something sweet to smile about on Thursday (well it's Thursday somewhere)

Oh I guess I can smile about Moondustwriter Thursday at One Stop - but there aren't 55 flavors of jam

Happy Thursday all

I don't know what a thimbleberry is, but what a nice lady that was. That lake country is gorgeous!

Looks like those monks make a lot of dough too.

Hope she didn’t get stuck in a traffic jam in her new Malibu after that.

All the best, Boonie

I've heard of that jam, but have never tasted it. Of course, I don't get to the U.P. very often, so the odds ain't good.

(And, at $8 a jar, it would be quite a splurge for me; I wince at the $4 jams in Frankenmuth)

I'm much more inclined to purchase other Monk-Made goodies, like beer!

Speaking of Friday, I ran across an old 55 that I'd misplaced that fits the bill.

Interesting name- are they- the berries, as small as they sound ? are they tart?

Myrna R. said...

Nice. Enjoy the timbleberry jam. I like the sound of that word -timbleberry. I never heard it before.

Jannie Funster said...

Ahhh, no FFF55 next Friday - got it.

Thimbleberry, love the name.

And Geez, you're practically Canadian way way up there. Good going!

Millie said...

That is crazy! What is thimbleberry?

Lulda Casadaga said...

Looks like a lovely place to visit and I'm intrigued about this jam...good one G! :)

drybottomgirl said...

It looks yummy! Being a Wisconsinite I love jams made from Door County! Face it I like jams made from anywhere....:)

Nessa said...

MMMmmmmm, yummies in the tummies.

That picture of the lake looks like a Leaping Lord.

Mama Zen said...
