The fruit lady

She put a little red packet into my fruit bags.
"This wednesday, I'll be saying bye!" she said.
"Going on holiday?" I asked
"Didn't I tell you? I am giving up this stall. Taking a rest."
The day, I moved here, 18 years ago, Her fruits stall is the ONE I frequent.
She picks the choicest fruit for me, gives me sound advice on which fruit to eat when my family have minor ailments.
Now, after 20 years running the stall she is finally throwing in the towel. I will miss her.
Another familar face I will miss.
