Fair enough,   I am just going by the fruit in the picture.  Well, maybe 
early breeds of pears looked like that too.  Or maybe they are 
distributing all the fresh fruits in the house to their various 
destinations, including the kitchen.  Who can say without having been 
there?  I'm not quite that old. Yet.
