I guess Jacob was just trying to get his Quaker oats!
That's talent! Seriously, I could never pack so much information and imagination into a story.I'm just too Southern, I like to run off at the mouth.
Homely is it Jacob?I should give you the back of me homely handlike my mama taught melolNotice the new photo id? I've gone and opened a second blog site...hope you'll come visit me there, toohugsSandi
Very good, Pearl. I was going to make a crack about oats but Dumdad beat me to it.

But she may have feet of clay.
Cute, and she says it with a smile! Actually, I think the first Thanksgiving was celebrated by Puritans rather than Quakers, but they had similar standards of behavior.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!OMG...how FLAWLESS!Brilliant one, m'dear!And PERFECT for the holiday!Have a great Monday and week!X
Love those good Quaker girls. Did you know that President Nixon's mother was a Quaker lady?..Thank you for this nice comment form. You will get to see my profile picture. The fellow beside me is a Quaker, he quakes...
And we do mean "homely" in the very best sense of the word. :)
LOL trust you Dumdad!Aw you're too kind Beach, thankyou. xI think that's what he deserves too Sandi LOLThanks Valerie :)Cheers Daryl xYes I think he got it wrong too Bee ;)Possibly Anthony ;)Who mentioned Thanksgiving Pat? We don't celebrate it here.Thanks Ron xxI didn't know that Jim, thanks for the information. :)Of course he did Pooch ;)
Well, you can't blame a guy for trying. I guess even the Quakers had their own version of the "pick up line." LOL
Question: Do you know what a first Pilgrim (Puritan) chick who's on the receiving end of a bad pick-up line to which she cleverly rebutts "I'm a good Quaker girl," eats for breakfast?Answer: "True Grits!Great hidden-with-a-cornucopia_of-sarcasms take!
Poor Jacob. Maybe he should have asked what her sign was. lolFun one!
I have recently learned that "homely" has different meanings in the UK and in the US. In the US it means "not pretty," "unattractive" or "very plain." In the UK it means "of the home, domestic," "characteristic of or suitable for home or home life" or "simple and unpretentious." That's why US readers thought Jacob was insulting Martha...lol!

Wasn't Richard Nixon a Quaker? lolThese two are cute.
He's got some juicy-looking corn there... maybe she'll come round to his way of thinking if he bribes her!
Um, this Quaker is here to tell you that those aren't Quakers - they're Pilgrims, who were rigidly conservative Calvinists in faith, believing in things like pre-destination and that their path was the only path to salvation. Not Quakerly in the least.
