Okay, I wasn't really chased but the security robot did head in our direction when we took a picture and we left quickly.  I have been giddy over seeing a security robot that roams The XPO Logistics compound near our church for months now.  I am not...

I have been coming to this stand for years.  It is an Amish farmer that has the best fruits and produce.  The scenery is picture perfect but I wasn't feeling camera intrusive today. So here is a picture of my bounty and all for uner $10.00.
