I Love Watermelon and Thoughtful Sons-in-law

 I love watermelon, have loved it all my life. I remember us getting watermelon on the 4th of July, the sound of it as it split open when the knife entered it's skin. Now, that's a juicy , ripe melon. My kind. 

There is no way I can lift a watermelon now, at this age, and put it into my shopping cart, haul it up to my apartment and then slice into it. Besides that... I can't eat all of that before it will go bad. 

I have the sweetest son-in-law. When he buys a watermelon he get it a little larger than he normally would. When it's cut into, he takes a slice, cuts it up into chunks, puts it in a ziplock bag and brings it to me. He knows I love the stuff and I suspect that he knows he's racking up a lot of points in his favor, too, when he does things like that. 


  1. What a sweetheart he is. Your daughter married well.

  2. How thoughtful of him! He'd definitely be in the running for favorite son-in-law.

  3. I love watermelon too. My Dad always had watermelons growing in the garden, ripe and ready to eat. YUM! Yes, your Son-in-law is racking up the points:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  4. That is a sweet, happy story! Thank you for sharing!

  5. Very sweet of your son-in-law. I love watermelon too and it's very refreshing and hydrating on a hot summer day, but I enjoy it all year round.


Thank you for your visit, your comment and your friendship. You have just made my day.
