The Cherry Festival

David and family invited the Sandpeople to his neck of the desert to partake of the Cherry Festival. Those still interested can still go this Friday and next and pick cherries. This festival puts me to shame since I will never rise above the calumny of the infamous (and pathetic) Great Potato Festival Fiasco.

Here for your viewing pleasure are pictures of the pickers:

Just a note...the festival is still happening, but I hear they are out of cherries, so no more picking

Nice shots, Sandman! You clearly bring out the adorable in your subjects -- even the crusty old guys. I'd like to rip off that great photo of the cherries (with full credit, of course) for an "another list of reasons to live in Israel" post. You see, they remind me of a story...

As I was telling Ruti, we almost went, and--dang--decided not to at the last minute. Would have seen all my blog friends covered in cherry juice....
