When Friends Give You Lemons...
Indio, California: Mary and Captain
Jim have a lemon tree on their lot at the Motorcoach Country Club and it bursts

The 41 lemons produced over a gallon of juice!
I froze ten cups (flat in vacuum-sealer bags) and then began pouring

Leo gave me the sweetest drawing:
I LOVE BUBBE
Leo drew a picture of himself with his Bubbe. As I was
complimenting my grandson on his talent and thinking he was so clever to add
earrings to my ensemble, I was informed by the artist they were not
earrings, but my ears. Betcha Michelangelo drew pictures of his grandmother.
Until my next update, I remain, your lemony correspondent.
