Strawberry Cherries

You know what strawberries and cherries are, right?
Do you know what strawberry cherries are?

When I bought them in a Chinese grocery store, a one pound box was only $0.99.
I didn't notice the word 'strawberry' on it's label until I found the taste was a little bit different than a strawberry and red cherry. Surely the taste is different, but I don't know how to describe it, maybe it is between strawberry and cherry. The size is smaller than a strawberry but bigger than a cherry.

Was this a GMO product?

I found a Groupon deal - $25 for a two hours bowling package with up to 5 shoe rentals, one 14" pizza and one pitcher of soda.

The last time bowling was 20 years ago. I got a strike for my first bowl, what luck, but didn't get another for the rest of the games.

Shannon had a big smile after her double strike.

I didn't get 2 more people to join, so 3 of us played almost 4 games in two hours. The game was a little much for us, since none are regular players.  However, the game was fun and the pizza was good.  

Who won?!  All our names start with "S"!

US - Grant's Farm & Ulysses Grant NHS

Grant's Farm is a very popular attraction in St. Louis.  Entry is free, but parking is $12.  

This is the line, to cross the street, to get into the Farm.

The long line on the parking lot was just to get to this station to board the tram.

The tram takes you through the farm, which is now an animal preserve. 

Visitors can feed bottles of milk to the baby goats
