No, no, of course I did not, I just added a little bit to my mineral water.

There is a funny story about lemons. As kids we used to take subway a lot. So we would pull this stuff. We are seating talking to each other, couple of guys usually, then get couple of lemons from our shopping bag and start casually eating them as if they were apples or something else yummy. People would go nuts. You should see somebodies face when you make first bite. It took a little bit of getting used to it, and it is really not that bad after you do. But it is funny.

You are certainly welcome, Charlie. No sense keeping something like that under my hat.

And I still eat lemons like that.

When I was a bartender, we had to cut up a lot of citrus. The best breath freshener ever is to chew a slice of lemon along with the pith and peel.

We now have Gnat season to go along with Tick season. And the mosquitos have also arrived. Sigh.

For gnats, I do find a dab of Absorbine Junior around the neck and ears seems to repel them. They were horrid during our walk last night, tonight with the Jr, not so much.

I'm sorry, but

That is pretty strange. Good thing it didn't hit the counter or dish rack.

PF, while I have you here. I can't thank you enough for the tip on taking pills. I take 17 pills every morning. Two are Gabapentin capsules and were always getting stuck sideways in my throat. The two Ranexa are also large oblong pills. The same problem. Since the tip, down they go. Thank you.

At the beginning of the month we received a notice that all the apartments were to be inspected today. Between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. At 1:45 another notice was slipped under my door. The inspection has be set back to June 13th. I don't know why they waste our and their time on this. They never fix anything they find wrong or broken. It took them six years to fix the crack in my ceiling. And only because HUD fined them. It was on their list every year.

I didn't even bother to get the apartment inspection ready. I knew this was going to happen.

I tell you, I deal with mutant idiots in this building.
