Hello Dear Readers! It’s Screw It Monday, which means it’s time to stare out into space and think about all the things you could be doing right now if you weren’t staring out into space.
Well here’s an idea for us! Why don’t we all go outside right now and make friends with our fruit trees? That’s right! Just like the slightly creepy seventies author, Jerry Baker, did back in 1973, when wrote an entire book about it. Apparently it was just the kind of thing people in the seventies were clamoring for!
Here it is in all its creepy seventies glory!
Now let’s take a closer look at Jerry, himself. Let’s gaze into his eyes and see if we can figure out what makes Jerry so friendly with his fruit trees.
Let’s open to the first page and see what awaits us:
And then there’s that slightly creepy logo of theirs. Why does a prestigious publishing company such as Simon and Schuster have a logo consisting of a man walking around in a onsie wearing a dough-boy helmet and a water-ski belt with one hand tucked inside of it? So I took the liberty of looking up Simon and Schuster for us and here they are:
Anyway, getting back to Jerry and his friends, inside Jerry’s book are many topics that are truly helpful for people who want to expand their social circle and start including members of the plant kingdom as part of their circle of friends.
Let’s take a look at some of Jerry’s friends. Well there’s:
And there’s also Jerry’s only human friend, his foxy wife, whatshername:
She’s looking mighty satisfied because later she is planning to runaway with:
But Jerry’s doesn’t care because he’s already madly in love with:
So you see everything is working out quite nicely for Jerry and his little group of fruit tree friends.
Here’s Penelope Peach and Jerry right after they moved in together:
Please say that’s all Jerry. Please! For the love of God! Please say that’s all!
Until next time . . . I love you
