Little-known fact about my late Grandma Nellie and Grandpa Jerry: They (SoCal natives like the rest o' my peeps) lived in Huntington Beach, CA my whole life. They also worked together professionally my whole life - and they were, jointly, the main public relations reps/'faces' of the California Pear Growers Association, and lived to evangelize and proselytize The Pear (well, really, the California-based pear). So, I grew up around a lot of pear-aphernalia (ack, couldn't resist) - I mean, a lot. Pear placemats, and coasters, and pictures, and corn holders, and wine stoppers, and ashtrays, and potholders, and etc., etc., etc. And now, I have very good associations with The Pear, so I automatically love all of the pictures above - but I admit that my favorite is also #5, with #7 #10 as the runners-up.
