Three for Thursday: The Eggman Cometh ...

Yesterday afternoon, as I was puttering about the front yard, a car pulled up to my house and I saw the smiling face of my good friend and fellow Houston garden blogger, David of Tropical Texana. Now I won't say I wasn't delighted to see him just for the pleasure of his company but my delight was greatly amplified by a most welcome gift!

Custom packaging, no less!

Feast your eyes on these beauties ... I'll feast on their goodness!

And feast I did ... don't they look beautiful in my egg-yolk yellow Copco pan?  This pan was a gift from my grandmother almost 30 years ago.  It came with a note that said, "Merry Christmas! Eat more eggs!"  

Thank you, David and flock, for enabling me to fulfill Grand's wishes both healthfully and beautifully.  I hope the girls enjoyed their thank you gift from me ... I sent David home with a gallon pot of chickweed we pulled from around the beds!  (Come back any time ... no, seriously ... ANY time!)

What a great gift! I love eggs too, but don't eat enough of them. Your Grand sounds like a cool lady.

What a fine gift, nicely packaged. The pan from your Grandmother with the eggs is priceless.

Nothing like the warm feelings one receives from speckled and/or speckling colored eggs. Your antique pan and eggs has me salivating right now.

You lucky duck. David's eggs. Yum.

So, did you get special treatment, or does he deliver to everybody, like the milkman used to deliver milk?

David said...

Fun post! I'm so glad you had that special pan to match.
As for the chickweed...the entire gallon was gone in less than a minute. Perhaps on my next visit I should just bring one of the hens to your garden for chickweed cleanup duty! They work for free. LOL

What a nice gift! I love his packaging, too. Funny how we used to be told that eating too many eggs was bad for us...I think Grandma knew best after all.

Thanks, y'all! To my knowledge only a favored few are on David's delivery route. It helps that I live a block away from where he works!
