You've painted a beautiful winter scene with your words. I could almost smell this, "Grandma would come out and fill the sleigh with her famous mincemeat pies, each pie in its box, each box sweatered in an embroidered kitchen towel." I especially like your phrase "sweatered in an embroidered kitchen towel." :)
This is one of my favorite so far this the nostalgia!
Absolutely gorgeous slice of life. Loved the first paragraph, with the reference to old farmers rubbing shoulders with young farmboys. Loved Grandma's warning. Most of all, I loved the last line. Superb.
Beautiful, evocative writing, full of atmosphere. Love it!
in the rustic quiet, the souls of old farmers and young farmboys rub shoulders.

I was caught by this line, what a joy to read.
This is truly great! The atmosphere you created makes for a happy feeling and remembrance of bygone pleasures.
I think it's great that we who grew up and experienced rural living can share such beautiful memories and scenes from our childhood. Nice word pictures.
