We're out front this morning and happen to notice an oak with the coolest green-tinged acorns, hundreds, maybe thousands of them just waiting to fall and be gathered up by a neighborhood squirrel who will promptly bury them and forget where he stashed 'em.
And this brings up ... well, not a sore point. Rather, a deficiency in my outdoor skillset: getting an acorn to whistle. Marcy can pick up any old acorn, pop the cap and immediately crank out a mean "Aqualung." Me ... me, I wind up with a slobbery acorn cap.
But as proof that you can find anything on the internet, she found the How to Whistle An Acorn Cap web page, guaranteed to get you driving the forest creatures mad in four easy steps.
Now, if you'll excuse me ... it's time to practice.
