TLT: lemonaid

TLT photo prompt by Erol Ahmed

When we was kids, Hansens’ let us haul away culls for nothing so’s we made lemonade for events like the country fair – nickel a glass with ice.

Had to keep my brother from drinking the profits – sugar and ice wasn’t cheap and he’s a mighty thirsty.

We’s now run an organic citrus orchard, but me eyes still gotta be on the profits cuz brother likes doin’ quality control testing on our hard lemonade.

 

Squeezed out of my imagination for Three Line Tales, week 15

A bit tongue in cheek when it comes to May’s theme of mental health/mental illness. But, substance abuse can be the cause or symptom of issues such as depression; an over simplification on my part of a complex condition and interrelationship.
