What are they?

Answer here this time tomorrow.

Hint: each is smaller than a bread box.

Another: not breadfruit nor in the breadfruit family.

A third: grown in England, where they know a thing or two about exotica.

Catme 13/Glass Effect 66 — The things money can't buy

6a00d8341c5dea53ef019aff41b140970d-800wi

Above, two of them.

No matter how much money you have you cannot buy Google Glass.

Never, ever, in my life have I owned something that hard to possess.

Though a couple girls from back in the 60s and 70s in L.A. came close.

But I digress.

Gray Cat falls into the same category: exquisite, beyond compare, like nothing else in the world.

Given the choice it would take me about half a zeptosecond to lose the Glass and keep the cat: not even close.

Lucky for me (and a certain denizen of the great state of Georgia, known to you by her musical handle) I don't have to make that choice.

And now you will please excuse me, I have to go shoot a Glass video or five just for her.
