When life hands you lemons

In honor of my beloved lemon tree that drowned in the floodwaters when the levee broke, I was on the hunt for some Meyer lemons, which make a heavenly salad dressing. I finally found some, but they were only sold in packs of four. I didn't think I could use all four and didn't want them to go to waste, so I hunted on. I couldn't find another store that carried Meyer lemons, so I went back and bought the pack of four. The next day a fellow foodie brought me a bag of four Meyer lemons that she had picked up at the local farmer's market (why didn't I think of that?)! I don't need to tell you what I did, do I?

Was the the beloved Meyer lemon tree that you so kindly gave to me and I had to give back so it wouldn't die of frostbite in Washington?

Yes. It died a tragic death!
