You remember pomelo? Sure you do. That largest of citrus fruits, of the family Rutaceae. Also known as shaddock, or pummelo here in Finland. Yeah, wasn't too keen on it myself in the day either.
But, having not seen Radler (that sweetest of sauna beverages and something I really enjoyed having while dining in Malta) for AGES (WHY is that?) I admit being curious when I saw Rohozec Citrus Maxima Pomelo. Clearly a Czech version of this decent thirst-quencher. And while it isn't as tasty as the Fosters version of a shandy, it's far better than the sludge Lidl sells. Will buy again, for sauna.
Today has been a Dog Day Afternoon. Well, a Dog Day Morning really, but that isn't as good a movie as the Al Pacino lead one. It's the Helsinki Winner Weekend at Messukeskus and our furries were there today. The morning ring brought us two 2nd places, as Mogens came second with Male Veterans and Arda finished similarly with Best Female. Great result for Arda, who showcased again her beautiful gait and stunningly mellow nature when in the ring. She truly is the Beauty at Dog Shows, whereas otherwise, she can be... a bit of a Beast.
I left with Arda at Noon and left Sari and Mogens behind, Mogens being the brilliant booth-boy with the Lancashire Heeler Association, and since the kennel MyHeels won the Best Breeder and hence went to the Big Ring later on. When you're a Good Boy, you need to do these things.
Happy Sibelius Day!
