This is a completely unenhanced and unmodified picture of the locust tree that overlooks the creek in my back yard. (I am unsure if either of those two un-words are actually words.) Ordinarily you can see the creek and Smithers Cemetery from this vantage point.
The fog that particular morning was as thick as peanut butter. Thankfully I didn't have to drive anywhere that day, because driving in peanut-butter-like fog can be hazardous. It can also make you hungry.
I'll end on this note, and that is: Only here (and in most kindergarten settings) will you read made-up words and phrases such as "peanut-butter-like fog," that may or may not be appropriately hyphenated.
Now, I'm going to stop advertising all the rules of grammar and the English language I've forgotten in the past quarter century and get on with the rest of my Sunday, which hopefully does not involve fog, hyphens or cemeteries, but may well include some peanut butter.
Have a great one.
