Olema apples

Today we were supposed to go to Berkeley to see Ming's kids, but BOB is running so rough, we didn't want to risk it.  We will take BOB to the mechanic tomorrow morning. 

Taking the train was going to cost us $116 buying the tickets the day before.  We could have gotten them half that if we had ordered three days ahead.

So now we have an open day to get some stuff done.

Yesterday at Jagadhatri puja we got four huge Olema apples, and I ate one yesterday.  It was one of the most delicious apples I have ever tasted, not too sweet, very hard.  But it had a stickiness to the outside that I didn't understand.  Are some apple skins just sticky?

Googled "Olema apples" and got a ton of hits for Robert Hass's book of poems The Apple Trees at Olema. Nothing about the apples.  Oh well.
