TOO FUNNY!Are one of you stalking us? We had the exact same lunch today.....watermelon slices and egg salad sandwiches!! SG has great taste I see.......Say WATERMELON!
Jim:Cheese!!! But did you have watermelon SLICES or one quarter of a watermelon? I think you guys are more rational eaters than we are.
Slices for us.....but we could easily devour half a one!
Gosia:I inherited all my father's slides from the 50s and 60s. A great collection of memories.
Ooooh, that looks tasty :)
Judy:It was delicious and way too much. But I of course ate it all.
I love the top photo!
Cranky:So do I. That was around 1957.
Dale had a great smile! What were you looking at?
Carole:Oh, I'm sure I was contemplating the future.
I used to grow watermelons called 'moon and stars'. Have you ever seen/had one?
Spo:I've never heard of that. Jerry recently bought "sandia negra" (black watermelon). The pink was much richer/darker and it's supposed to be juicy and sweet (it was).
I used to say SWISS when asked to say CHEESE.
anne marie:I never cooperated. But I remember Dale also sometimes saying, "Limburger!!!"
I use to hate smiling for pictures.
Travel:I still do. I first would smile too big. Then not at all. Then I developed "camera smile" (a smile I never exhibited in real life). I still hate it but I've gotten better at it lately./
As a 'cheese' substitute we'd run the gamut of the product ('Gorgonzola' was a favourite), though our vocabulary was then nowhere near as extensive as in Monty Python's cheese shop sketch.
Raybeard:The only word I would ever cooperate with was when I was told to "smile and say 'shit'."
is that where the phrase "cheesy smile" came from? I could get into some watermelon right now, looks good.
Wilma:Well, if that's not where cheesy smile came from, let's say it did. (I'm so clever.) We have been having watermelon or canteloupe just about every day with lunch. Perfect. (Today was canteloupe.)
I eat a lot like that in the summer...it's too darn hot to fire up the ovens. What a cute child.......
mistress maddie:Wasn't I though (a cute child)?!? Oh, and my sister was, too. Kitchen-challenged as I am, there is never a good time of year to fire up the ovens.
Watermelon isn't a word that produces a smile, but Dale still managed to have a cute smile.
Stephen:I agree. It had nothing to do with watermelon. She would yell, "WATERMELON!!!" Then she'd smile.
It's always great to hear from you...
