The visit to Harry's before the Mango Festival.....
« on: July 19, 2012, 10:13:41 PM »
Here is a nice picture of the group (not including me because I am the photographer  :D )
It was a great afternoon of Mango tasting, Jackfruit sampling and an awesomely delicious introduction to the Abiu.
I want to say a big thanks to Harry for his generosity in sharing his time and his property full of fruit trees with us.
I am happy to brag that today I grafted 7 pieces of Budwood Of the SUPER CARRIE aka Harry-Carrie (6 onto my Carrie tree and 1 onto my Keitt-just to see if a different rootstock makes a different)
I also did 2 epicotyl grafts from the budwood of  Harry's-- Black Gold x Tabouey JAckfruit.
I am really looking forward to reporting on the outcome of these grafting efforts.
Harry Thanks  again for sharing to make this possible and all your generosity!!

Tons of mangos, tons of festivals, great nurseries, meetings, talks, and great people. You are all so lucky!!! Thanks for posting photos Marinfla.

Marin,

Thanks for posting the pics!

It's nice to be able to see a face behind a username every now and again.

It looks like most of the bunch was in jovial spirits, and that this was a fine fruit filled occasion.
 may all of your grafts be takes.

 :)

Actually, I just noticed that all the people to the left of Harry (and including Harry) are lawyers (or in the case of Murahilin, soon-to-be). That's Lycheeluvah to the far left, beside Murahilin, then I'm the only woman in the pic because Marin has the camera.

From lef to right:

Gerry (Lycheeluva) seated and leaning, with the Foster Grants, trying to look important.  The scowling guy behind is murahilin (murahilin).  I think his shoes were a bit tight that day or perhaps he had stomach cramps. Then Katie (Hollywood), nice to have met you even though you are a lawyer ( I hate lawyers).  Then me sitting on my butt as usual. Then Abayomi (Future) from Bermuda.  Always a pleasure to have his shining face sitting across the fruit tasting table from you. Far right standing is Grover (I don't think he has registered in this forum, but is active in the garden Web temperate fruit forums), a friend of Gerry's and his traveling companion.  I don't think it goes further than that but who knows.  No, actually a very nice guy that has acreage up in Long Islang, NY and grows lots of temperate fruits. Then seated to the far right is Clint (SleepDoc).  He's a jakfruit lover extrodinaire.  He is the only one brave/foolish enough to climb to the top of my 30 foot jakfruit tree to pick fruits.  What would we do without him.  And that, my friends, is all.  Marin was kind enough to shoot us in our fruit eating glory.

Great picture of the 'crew' and it is quite a dashing bunch with no one looking crusty at all.It is good to hear that there is at least one social climber in the pack who will go out on a limb for the pack.I am a big fan of companionship also.Today vietnamese fruit friends visited me bearing gifts.They promised me a batched of their exquisite lemon chempa x jacks in November whe they revisit.

In his defense I do definitely recall a comment about how close you guys really planned to get in your 4 star hotel...I will not repeat the exact comment for fear that I may need to join the witness protection program :)

I was not scowling. It was more of a neutral face. I will regain the ability to smile next Wednesday at 5pm.

I almost went to law school myself. Applied and got into 3. But i decided not to become a lawyer. I think it was the student loans i would have had to take out that convinced me otherwise.

Oscar- you are a smart man. The rest of us heard about the high entry salaries and failed to divide that salary by the required annual work hours. Therefore, we didn't realize what a monumental ripoff law school is.

Murahilin- good luck! Bring cash on the 2nd day, because the bar association provides a  keg as you exit the building.

I had such a great time last week. It is wonderful that Harry opens his home to so many people with such regularity.

I'm looking at that picture and thinking, "man look at all the 6 figure salaries in there."

Just kidding :-).

I suppose that if you own property in HI, you probably have enough $$ in that land to pay off law school a few times over at this point :-). Not me. I was smart enough to buy just before the real estate market collapsed and now have a loan-to-value ratio so big that I can barely count that high. Ohh well, I'm just happy to have land to cultivate enough MANGOES to make Adam jealous.

Yes I wish you the best of luck with your examination, it sounds a bit daunting.

My advice,

Bar none, never go to the bar, the night before taking the bar examination, you could be barred from becoming a litigator, and placing people behind bars.  :D  ;)

If I was a lawyer, I'd be striving to have big billboards all over town with my face on them, it seems like all the highest paid and most well respected attorneys near me have at least 20 signs.

Who knows, maybe one day we will see Murahaleen's face Happily looking down upon us from a giant roadside sign, with the text, "Have you been injured?". 

;D




Mura, good luck with your bar! I' sure you will have no problem ;)

Marin, thanks for sharing and good luck with the grafts  ;)

You guys in FL are sure have a good time...  ::)
