At first glance, I was nearly alone
But around a bend, I came upon an unusual sight - for even a mild Maine winter. A family was gathered around heavily-laden picnic tables. Note that a pair of blue-coated picnickers are warming their hands over a charcoal grill. Mainers may be hardy, but we're not foolish!
The lady in the center, and the only person with hands not in pockets, is Susan Parker, who is holding jars of her "Relish The Moment" Zucchini Relish.
I can attest to the taste of he product, although I haven't yet put it to the "I'm fat because I love to eat - a lot!" test, which consists of loading relish on a number of hot dogs and hamburgers.
But, on a spoon, out of the jar, this is superb stuff!
Susan holds her second grandchild as his mother wisely slips her hand into her pocket. It's nice out, for sure, but it's still January.
Until her "Relish the Moment" website is completed, Susan Parker can be contacted at email@example.com
