The annual chestnut harvest


Oh how I love Autumn. There seems to be an abundance of chestnuts this year. Maybe that indicates a hard winter. Who knows? The squirrels loss is my gain and there are plenty for everyone. I will be munching on these tonight whilst doing a superb impression of a couch potato.

They look like conkers to me.

The squirrels near where I live wont have any problems eating. There are loads of chestnuts on the floor. I just hope none of the squirrels are squashed trying to recover loose chestnuts from the road.

You'll die you daft bugger: they're horse chestnuts.

Conkers....... You're both bonkers. They were delicious SWEET chestnuts. I know a horse from a sweet any day.

Just to be safe have some Cheesy Puffs instead. I've heard that Cheesy Puffs are all the rage down in Kent.

Cheesy Puffs? Pray tell me more. Am I missing out here?
