Peach (Wayne Mefferd) is my brother in law who lives in Missouri Valley, Iowa and own and operates Peachy’s Barber Shop in Woodbine, Iowa where is now cutting third generations of hair. He is married to my sister Peggy. They manage to find me fresh black walnuts most every year and sends them for the holidays. When I visit he always this fudge and pops popcorn the old fashioned way.
