I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again. I love these posts about your father-in-law!

Oh, I love that. "only Allah is forever!" meaning "get your watermelon now!" That cuts a bewildering number of ways!

gorgeous image and another wonderful story of your father-in-law!

Ditto with what Dale said. The germ of a poem, here, Beth?

Thanks, Beth. This is a nice slice-of-watermelon post - it feels like a refreshing palette cleanser between otherwise depressing reading, a brief "cure" for all systems in decline. The vendor is right.

there is only.... this moment, isn't there?
thanks for the reminder

Beth.. I wonder, next time you visit your father-in-law would you please tell him that this Brit finds his anecdotes fascinating and greatly enjoys these glimpses into another time and place... please thank him and wish him good days.... thank you

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
