Some people like to pop bubble wrap, but my thing is running over walnuts and hearing them pop. Often I drive to the edge of the road to crush walnuts.
My fun has not gone unnoticed by the local flock of crows. They quickly learned of the delicious meat inside. Three trees are dropping walnuts in my drive and along the road.
