    First peach I bought this summer, proly cost me about 50 cents.

    Was absolutely pricelessly delicious. Almost an infinite ROI.

    And I figured it would bode well for the rest of the summer.

    The peach crop has been great this year.

    Will you be infusing them into a vodka in the near future?

    First I've heard someone react to a stone fruit in this manner. Hats off. Maybe.

    Weird, the fuzz doesn't bother me, and the drop off of taste from a peach to the fuzz-less nectarine is tremendous IMHO.


    [QUOTE=crasherino;4496197]Will you be infusing them into a vodka in the near future?[/QUOTE]

    POSSIBLY.

    Am defiantly making a peach pie, though.

    It was one of those monumentally semenal early summer moments. Like getting a squid stuck in you're genital slit.

    If I catch anything when I go fishing, it's always a fluke.

    You're telling me. It was just one of those days. We'd caught the limit (2 per person, 21") and decided to keep fishing to see if we could get anything bigger. And we did. Four times. We threw four back in and kept the bigger ones.

    Grainy BlackBerry pic, me on the right.

    Years back, my grandfather bought a seat on the stock market for a mere $17K.
    My uncle’s family leases to companies now for $2M+/year.

    Great investment? Maybe…

    But back when he bought the seat, he could have taken that same $17K and instead bought an NFL franchise… :eek:

    Wow.:eek:

    Damn you, child of privilege.

    If that was me, I'd be standing with two off-duty day laborers holding Sea Robins on the Cross Bay bridge.

    The mint plant is moving up my list on best investments.

    Time to shut down the computer and head home, my sopne just sent me this picture.

    It's officially Mojito time.
