Jerkee and Jerkor

Peanuts Tarot ~ 7 of Swords/Spades

Trust issues.
We earn our suspicious natures, having been tricked, led astray, lied to, fooled, jerked around, again. You'd think we'd be smarter younger, and maybe we were.

And false modesty to think we're always the jerkees, never the jerkors. Linus has two shovel types, one for digging/getting, one for scooping/taking, food for thought in those choices. From which shovel are we feeding?

My father-in-law asked me what I wanted from his estate and I said I'd always loved his shovel collection. Utility in so many shapes. I remember him with love every time I reach for one. You always knew where you stood with him.

  2. I love my shovels too. I shall think of whom I will pass them to when I am unable to use them. Good choice of a remembrance of your father in law.

    1. I first noticed them in the mid-80s, he had a protected pump shed and had them all hung neatly on the outside wall where I saw them every time we drive in.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
