I'll take the cute little bottle on the left.
nonamedufus said…
The lemon oil? Yuck.
Ziva said…
Who has lemon oil at home?
nonamedufus said…
We do! I found it in the pantry.
Pat Kumicich said…
I do - use it to polish my wood furniture
Katherine said…
Reaaly pretty picture... the shadow is especially nice!
nonamedufus said…
Well, there you go! Ziva doesn't clean as you can tell by her picture today.
mike said…
I always buy grapefruits but forget to eat them.
nonamedufus said…
My wife loves grapefruit. Me, not so much.
Nicky said…
What does one do with lemon oil? Besides polish wood furniture?
nonamedufus said…
I think it's used in cooking.I'll have to ask my magnificent chef, Mrs. D.
nonamedufus said…
I pucker up just looking at it.
Cheryl said…
A two-fer. Nicely done, Dufus. I'm such a non-foodie I had to read the comments to figure out what kind of citrus fruit that was. I figured out the oil just fine (thank gawd for labels).
nonamedufus said…
It's actually a lemon. It just looks like a grapefruit.
Barb said…
very "on topic"! nice job!
Laughing Mom said…
I have lemon oil for furniture - it's great on old wood, but I've certainly never tasted it!
Cheryl said…
I thought it was a lemon but figured the others must know their fruit better than I do. That's the last time I rely on this group for information.
MikeWJ said…
We do, too! It's good for cooking. And polishing the piano.
MikeWJ said…
Okay, after looking at three photos of lemons (and lemon oil), that old Peter, Paul and Mary song popped into my head. Sing with me, NoName:

Lemon tree, very pretty
And the flower, oh so sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon
Is impossible to eat

(swelling orchestral arrangement)
Ziva said…
Oh fuck off, Mike, as if you'd ever polish anything other than.. well, you know.
MikeWJ said…
Yeah, okay, you might be right. But not with lemon oil. It stings like hell, and you'd be VERY surprised to learn how much 11 solid inches (28 solid centimeters) of pain can ruin your day.
Ziva said…
11 inches? Dream on.
Margaret said…
You and I are BOTH lemons today, Dufus!
MikeWJ said…
Oops! I had the ruler backwards.

Sorry. I hope I didn't get anybody's hopes up. So to speak.

Carry on.
Lauren said…
You definitely made lemonade out of that shot.
nonamedufus said…
The others know nothing about fruit apparently.
nonamedufus said…
I think I have. I think Mrs D sneaks it into dishes she makes.
nonamedufus said…
You're not reminded of Led Zeppelin's The Lemon Song?
nonamedufus said…
I guess we're a couple of sour pusses.
nonamedufus said…
Ha, ha. When life gives you lemons...
Monique Renae said…
I use lemon chunks to keep my microwave and garbage disposal smelling lovely... I wonder if lemon oil would do the same trick.
nonamedufus said…
Garbage disposal I get but microwave. How do you do that?
Indigo Roth said…
Hey Dufus! I like this one. But is that a lemon? Looks more like a plum? I'm just asking. Indigo
Monique Renae said…
Take a few chunks and put it in a bowl with a little bit of water. It becomes beautifully lemon scented steam which makes the microwave nice and fresh!
nonamedufus said…
It is an odd looking lemon, isn't it.
nonamedufus said…
Cool.You learn something every day.
Paula Wooters said…
Lemon oil? I thought it was one of those little liquor bottles they give you on airlines. (I think I need new glasses.)
nonamedufus said…
Piano, right. Hear that, Ziva?
nonamedufus said…
I think you need some lotion.
nonamedufus said…
I think you need a lot of lotion.
nonamedufus said…
But 11 backwards is 11.
Ziva said…
Oh, I hear it, dufus. You know what I also hear? The sound my whip makes when it connects with your backside.
nonamedufus said…
Okay, just checking.
Jamie Baker said…
Yep, straight up sour.
ladyV said…
sour to the 2nd power.
Coco said…
It's a straight sour photo and pretty one!
nonamedufus said…
Well, thank you.
Junebug said…
I love the smell of lemon but not the taste of lemon.
nonamedufus said…
I'm with you, Junebug.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
