The nut lady

 

Rows of bagged nuts
Every year in early November a woman who lives out south of town brings in truckloads of nuts and dried fruits. I believe it's a fundraiser for her church. It's been so successful that she built a metal building out behind her house to house and sell the nuts. She's only open for a week. (OK, maybe she uses the building for something else the rest of the year, but the conventional wisdom is that it's only for nuts and fruits.) She's known as the Nut Lady. Word spreads through friends: "The Nut Lady is open!" People plan to go in groups. Some people go multiple times over the week. (I went twice this year.) We've learned not to go at the end. Nothing is left but yogurt covered pretzels, and maybe some mixed dried fruits.
