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.

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on, Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever. I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read. So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still hav
