As it land........it come ashore


Well here we have it.....the end of the mango season.
My girlfriend dropped off  some of "the stragglers" for me earlier this week.
The trees are giving up the last of their fruit for a while.......the last of the last of the last of the Mohicans, so to speak.
As soon as the delicious fruit arrived, Brownie and I had to have a taste.
Sweet, succulent, so very tasty.
The Man of the House licked up every last piece, and kept on looking around for more.
In the twinkling of an eye, two mangoes were consumed with such fervour, even I was astonished.  Brownie not so much.
From now on it looks like I'm going to have to sneak behind his back and have a mango all for myself.
A saying here: "As it land it come ashore" meaning as soon as something is acquired, it is used.

  2. How very odd. I read a post today where someone suggested offering a cat water melon. Now I learn that Brownie eats mango. It's a strange world.

    1. I tried watermelon with Brownie and he did not like it.
      Remember when he first came to live with me, he did not like mango either, but NOWWWWWWW......

  3. I've never given Missy mango. We have to buy them here and they are expensive, but she did try banana once and spat it back out.

    1. Maybe just a small sliver of mango the next time you are having one, and then you'll know whether she likes it or not.
      Brownie does not like banana either, banana bread on the other hand....that he does like.
