Another food that reminds me of you and that I love is watermelon. I wrote a little story about it and am hoping some day it will be published. It must need more work or I haven’t found the right publication.
I’m not a fan of watermelon flavor like gum, hard candy or juice type drinks. Blah. I do like the looks of anything watermelon and have purchased something if I really liked it. I saw a set of watermelon dishes once that I considered buying, but didn’t know whether or not it would be worth the expense because I felt you’d only want to use them during summer. It’s like having Christmas dishes. Where do you keep them all? I just saw the cutest watermelon candle but I’m at the stage of my life where I’m wanting to get rid of things so I easily passed it up.
I always buy the real thing and eat it with great pleasure remembering you.
Here’s my favorite watermelon sitting in my garden in the various seasons. It’s made out of a hunk of tree that had fallen in a storm. Norm painted it for me after I begged and whined. The watermelon is starting to look a little shabby, but I still love it.
