  24. My mouth waters when I look at those lobster boats. Hardly ever get to eat Lobster anymore since it has become very expensive. But love your pictures. Sorry Artmuse, no lemonaid (but in truth you probably wouldn't like it). I have used the dryer sheet in my pocket and it works. Great fror when I walk Izzi at night ... she likes to stir up the mosquitos in the bushes and they all come after me. But, not any more:) Be well, Carol ...
