:D Can’t get away from peaches at this time of year! Though just at the moment I’ve been buying flat (doughnut) peaches, with small stones...





I don't know......this just sounded sexual....... Probably just me..... You know how I am!!!!

Here's something that made me laugh.

I was rearranging some books last evening, and I came across a coffee table picture book that I haven't looked at for some time. The book is called Summer Souvenirs. It was published in the early Eighties, and I think it's very much of its time, as it's all pictures of hot young men either in brief bathing suits or nude. Anyway, the photo on the cover is of a hottie in a Speedo-type bathing suit, lying under a beach umbrella, and ... (wait for it) ... eating a peach. ...

Too funny, Jeff, and maybe that's where AA got the idea!?

It’s definitely just you, Linda!

But I don’t know how Elio would have managed off they’d only grown this kind of peach.

Very true, Sara. It would have been difficult.

Well, if you cut that stone out of the middle and made a large-enough hole in the center. ...

So off topic, but every time I come to this thread and see the peach discussion, I'm reminded of the grapefruit method.

Same as peach but grapefruit? Sounds as if it might sting anyway!

Ehm... I have done some interesting things with melons, but I think those things are really off topic.

There is an old Arabic saying:-

A goat for necessity
A wife for duty
A boy for pleasure
and a Melon for ecstasy

I'll just leave that there.
