This afternoon, between thunderstorms, Velvet and I were outside watching the chickens and she picked up a burr she found lying on the ground. We tossed it at each other a few times, laughing as it stuck to our clothing - it wouldn't stick to jeans, but loved her long-sleeve T and my fuzzy sweater. She held it in her hands, taking a really close look at it, and then said,
"Hey mom. Is a burr where they got the idea for Velcro?"Yes, indeed.
