Exotic fruit and top 5 picks!

 Ahhh ... grateful for friends bearing gifts of "Exotic Fruit" !!!

     My friend Aubrey from work, brought me these beautiful homegrown starfruit yesterday. Mmmm ... they are going to be so good in a day or so when they are fully ripe and juicy, can hardly wait!

     The following are reruns of past entries on "Exotic Fruit Bearing Friends. "

June 4th

Succulent, Sweet and ohhhhh so yummy!

Anybody know what they are?

Hint-the brown things in front are the seeds.

The Question,

Anybody Know what these are? 

 

The Answer.

Lychee Nuts! <click here

 

     This is my friend Aubrey. He reads the news paper to me on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings at break time at work. He is one of a hand full of friends that keep me up to date on what is going on in the world. These friends are a very valuable commodity to a girl like me who almost never makes time to watch the news. Thank you Aubrey, David, David and Dad without you I would be less enlightened.

 

     Aubrey also brings in exotic fruit to share at work. The house he lives in previously belonged to a man from Thailand. This man grew Lychees, Pomegranates, Mangos, Star Fruit, Pineapples and the likes.

 

     Aubrey and his wife are reaping the benefits of all of this exotic mans hard work over the years. Lucky Aubrey! Lucky me to have a friend that shares.

July 14th

Last week Aubrey brought in Mangos, yesterday Becky brought in Bananas.

It's great to live in Florida where so many kinds of tropical fruit grow.

Quite often you will find a basket full of fruit by the time clock at work that someone is looking to share from their garden. Yummm ...

     Ok, enough with the fruit stories. Before I rush off to work, I wanted to thank all of you for your kind words of congratulations in comments this morning. Dancing in the Rain is on the Editors top 5 picks list this week along with 4 other must read journals.

     Hmmm ... with all of the other great journals out there, I was a little surprised (but honored) that they picked mine. Have a great rest of the day all.
