Plums this time of year rock pretty hard. Plums also make me think of this knit hat I had when I was a kid. It was bright purple and was adorned with the phrase "New York's the Big Apple...but Cleveland's a Plum" knitted in white.
No, I didn't knit that myself.
And, no, I'm not making that up.
That Plum statement was Cleveland's attempt to "rebrand" itself in the early 1980s...rebranded as what I have no idea.
