It’s too early! My eyes and brain can’t focus on this!
Rather elaborate, no?

Oh my. I can rwad most of it. But it must have been a different era to recognize some of those pictures… an awl? For all? Really? And I’ll assume those are peaches that you get to pick on the farm cuz you sure ain’t picking apples in June. Wow.

I meant to add (ahem) that it took quite a bit of puzzling to figure out that 2+2=4 bit, too.

Oh, an “awl.” I was having a hard time figuring out how “icepick” fit into the story.
I left it at generic “fruit” and have no idea what the second picture is. Nits, maybe??

Heh, heh — a whole different vocabulary than today’s, isn’t it?
