Benefit to reading in Cherry Valley, NY? You just might meet Charles Plymell

Benefit to reading in Cherry Valley? You just might have Charles Plymell drop in for a listen and he just might ask you to his home for tea afterwords and you just might go and hear story after incredible story that makes your realize you have done nothing, absolutely nothing with your amazing life. And you won’t care. Because Charles did and still is.

In London by Charles Plymell

In London in a very neat
and sensible flat,
lives the one true genius
of contemporary American prose.

More like a poet
he veers and speaks both
naturally and subliminally,
Or more like a medium
he chats pleasantly
from a space apart,
or from a chamber
of spirits disguised
in a everyday world.

A tall man, slightly stooped
from the weight of all
the combinations and formulas
of all possible plots,

Mr. Burroughs rises
and leans against the window ledge
…could have been a St. Louis
merchant or farmer
about to speculate on the weather.

“Those birds,” he says, gesturing out
the window to a flock that caught his fancy,
“in mornings they fly one way
and in the evenings they
fly back the other way.”

And with that he reached for his hat
and we went to the local pub for brandy.

–June 1968

Brent and Josh of Beekman 1802 and the Mortgage Lifter idea…

“What if we use these tomatoes to help other small farmers pay off their mortgages?”

Just last year at the Sharon Springs Garden Party, I saw some of these brilliant green starter tomato plants with the funny name and I thought…hmmmm, Mortgage Lifter.

Of course, Brent and Josh, The Fabulous Beekman Boys, saw them and thought, hah! Mortgage Lifter!

After winning The Amazing Race last fall and paying off their own farm mortgage, Brent and Josh got to cooking up a great idea with their crop of Mortgage Lifter tomatoes.

For every jar purchased they will donating 25% of the profits of this sauce to directly help struggling small American farmers. Maybe even pay off a few mortgages.

If you can, buy a jar, taste a bit of heaven and spread the word.

It is what we country folk do.

If you are a retailer and you’d like to learn more about the fabulous range of Beekman 1802 products, email me…director, wholesale for Beekman 1802!
