Today’s Pink Lady Apple

Ooo! It’s very red! and quite big.

It has one hideous blemish on the top there. It’s about the size of three normal hideous blemishes, but it is technically just one.

Whatever. Eating around it.

It’s pretty good! Reasonably crisp. Nicely juicy. Lots of flavor. Very sweet, with some good tartness mixed in there.

I rate this apple “crunchibly nummy” on the Not Honeycrisp scale.

Yesterday’s Pink Lady Apple

Nice and big. Good apple shape. Several blemishes, buy only one hideous.

Reasonably good crispishness. Definitely more hard than crisp. Ow. Just let me eat you! It shouldn’t be a struggle. My teeth shouldn’t hurt.

Are these teeth strengthening exercises to keep the dentist away?

Acceptably juicy. Flavor is nicely sweet.

I rate this apple “good” on the Not Honeycrisp scale.

Today’s Pink Lady Apple

This apple is from Trader Joe’s! oooooo!

It looks good. Except for that one large, hideous blemish. But otherwise quite pink and nicely round.

Fairly crisp! Actually, more hard than crisp. ow. I don’t want to fight for eat bite.

Good juice levels. I see some juice pooling. (update: juice levels may be too high. I lost a piece to gravity and stepped on it. Juice everywhere.)

Good flavor! Kinda on the tart side.

I rate this apple “good job on stocking apples, Trader Joe’s” on the Not Honeycrisp scale.

Yesterday’s Pink Lady Apple

Not very red. Nor pink. This half is totally green.

There’s one hideous blemish. Of course, it’s smack dab in the middle of the part that is red.

Oh, it tastes good on the inside! Some good flavor. Good juice levels. And reasonable crisp!

I rate this apple as “Not too bad, really” on the Not Honeycrisp scale.

Today’s Pink Lady Apple

Looks ok. A bit roughed up from being in my bag too long.

It’s reasonably crisp!

It tastes like apple. Did you ever easy am apple that treated quintessentially apple-y. Now that’s apple!

That’s not a knife. No, it’s an apple.

Good juice levels. No dribbles.

I rate this apple “Apple” on the Not Honeycrisp scale.

Yesterday’s Red Delicious Apple

Meet Milo. These are Milo’s apples.
Actually these aren’t Milo’s apples, but Milo did take a bite out of each of them in turn, claiming them all as his own.
Milo and his friend Becca Cheskes are the proud winners of my little photo contest and will be receiving the CAPS LOCK pet bowl (packed in an LvR t-shirt to keep it safe). This photo has a lot going for it: Milo is an incredibly handsome cat with beautiful markings that hint at a touch of mischief, and the photo itself is terrific, capturing Milo in a pose that says he’s not quite sure what all of the fuss is about. He’s just being Milo. It struck me as a great illustration of why Lou is the way he is. Just being Lou. Just being a cat. It is not ours to understand.
Sadly, Milo passed on to his next life a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t hear that until after this selection, but am glad to have a tiny part in his sendoff and offer all my sympathy to Becca and anyone else Milo knew. You can see he was a good boy. He just liked getting the first bite.
Congratulations, Becca! Look for your prizes in the mail.
I would also like to throw out a big “thank you” to everyone who entered. There were over 50 entries, all told (though I couldn’t see a handful of them due to privacy, I think) and they were all great. Awesome cats being awesomely cat-like, awesome dogs being awesomely dog-like, and even a couple of really cool lizards. In particular I want to note some honorable mentions: matthiasferber’s gorgeous cat perched atop a closet door in a great pose; surbanoski’s lizard in a perfectly timed photo of a Miley-esque expression; and finally, a shot that I can’t share because it’s on a private account, but it’s of my nephew on the edge of succumbing to an attack from Henry, the vicious vampire cat (Rachel, I have something to send you too :).
Thanks, everyone.
