Oh I'm a Blessed Man!

As most of you know, I love salted Virginia peanuts in the shell. A Virginia peanut is a peanut that is plump and has only two nuts in the shell. They can be grown in Virginia or anywhere else. It is the type of nut you see at the ball park.

I only like Hampton nuts and these nuts happen to be grown in my home state of North Carolina.

Everyday when I get home from work I sit in my chair and throw a few handfuls of peanuts down my neck. I eat them far too much but I can’t help myself. They are so good.

A few weeks ago I got a couple of bags that were below par. They looked okay on the outside, but the nuts were withered and dried up on the inside.

I emailed Hampton Nuts and complained about the recent poor quality.

They must have tracked my peanut buying volume because today I get a UPS delivery with a 5 pound bag of these beauties with a letter of apology.

Oh sweet Moses! A five pound bag!

You know what goes best with peanuts?
Beer. Lots and lots of beer.

But did you get to track the UPS package?

5 pounds of peanuts? That is fantastic. Just don't eat them all at once. Remember those man boobs you were complaining about? The key is moderation. Just a little friendly advice.

I would have a beer but have to wait. I am having my physical tomorrow and need to give my giblets a rest the night before.

I could track the package because I didn't know it was coming.

I sat there and stared at the peanuts all day. I am home now eating a few.

Terri...I only eat one at a time until they are gone. I'll wait to open these peanuts when I can share on the upcoming vacation.
