Every time I visit my family in Grand Haven, Michigan
I buy one of these etched wooden utensils. I do this for
a variety of reasons:
1. I like wooden utensils.
2. I like to support small businesses.
3. I love the folky, funky designs.
The reason I purchased this particular utensil was based
on something that had happened to me the day before I
was in Grand Haven. I was driving along a road near the
area where I hike and I thought I saw a baby kitten in the
grass on someone's lawn. Then I realized, that wasn't a
cat! It was a baby fox! I reversed the car and went back
to the spot but I could only see the spot in the lawn that
must be the "foxhole". The baby was no longer sticking
its head out. I figured I better not go investigate because
Mommy or Daddy fox might not like that.
Now I will think of that little fox whenever I use this
