No Scurvy Here...



Thanks to a good friend who happens to have connections down in The Valley...where apparently a lot of the elderly can not eat grapefruits due to the fact that something in the grapefruit makes their medication metabolize oddly, and then well...grapefruit kills.

Or at least puts one in the proverbial grapefruit coma.

Not here however...
here, we are treating the grapefruit and various other citrusness as pure food gold with a special little citrus happy dance I have made up on the fly (not getting too wild, of course, so as to not knock myself out on any sharp corners or surfaces...thus putting myself in a whole different league of the proverbial grapefruit coma) Imagine if you will however that perhaps the citrus is being used in strategic places on the body...much like a more sexy version of Carmen Miranda...

Then again...

Perhaps not.
(I must leave something to the imagination)
(which is why the citrus dance video will not be posted to YouTube)

Vitamin C overdose...here I come...

I *HEART* grapefruit!!!!!!

One of the many reasons I don't take cholesterol reducing drugs...they don't mix...

I'm all about the sweet juicy grapefruit!

Growing up, my grandmother had citrus trees in her yard. So, I got spoiled on oranges the size of grapefruit that actually tasted sweet! These days, good citrus is impossible to find... at least in this part of the world.

So, ENJOY!! :D

I'm so glad Miss L does not share my citrus texture aversion. She actually enjoys eating oranges and the like.

Pretty. When I was a kid growing up in Florida we used to U-pick oranges and grapefruits by the paper grocery bag full :)
