Marilyn said it was
midwinter...snowing and quite cold...and the guy had taken her skiing to
Lake Arrowhead. It was a day trip (no overnight).
No, not Marilyn. They
were strangers, after all, and truly had never met before. The outing was
fun but relatively uneventful until they were headed home late that
afternoon. They were driving back down the mountain when she gradually began
to realize that she should not have had that extra latte. They were about an
hour away from anywhere with a rest room and in the middle of

and started. Unfortunately, in the deep snow she didn't have good footing,
so she let her butt rest against the rear fender to steady herself. Her
companion stood on the side of the car watching for traffic and indeed was a
real gentleman and refrained from peeking.
All she could think about was
the relief she felt despite the rather embarrassing nature of the situation.
Upon finishing however, she soon became aware of another sensation. As she
bent to pull up her pants, the young lady discovered her buttocks were
firmly glued against the car's fender. Thoughts of tongues frozen to pump
handles immediately came to mind as she attempted to disengage her flesh
from the icy metal. It was quickly apparent! that she had a brand new
problem due to the extreme cold.
Horrified by her plight and yet

out laughing. She too, got the giggles and when they finally managed
to compose themselves, they assessed her dilemma. Obviously, as
hysterical as the situation was, they also were faced with a real problem.
Both agreed it would take something hot to free her chilly cheeks from
the grip of the icy metal.
Thinking about what had gotten her into
the predicament in the first place, both quickly realized that there was

This fruit of ancient lineage has been grown in China for
over 4,000 years. It now thrives in most temperate climates, with
California producing about 90 percent of the American crop. A relative of
the peach, the apricot is smaller and has a smooth, oval pit that falls out
easily when the fruit is halved. Because they're highly perishable and
seasonal, 90 percent of the fresh apricots are marketed in June and
July. When buying apricots, select plump, reasonably firm fruit with a
uniform color. Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 5
days. In addition to being rich in vitamin A, dried apricots are a valuable
source of iron and calcium. Like bitter almonds, apricot kernels are
poisonous until roasted.

"What's this?" I
heard my daughter ask as she held it for me to see. "Why, it's just an old

package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando.

down!" George: "The house will not burn down, dear." Wife: "Now, how can
