    Talking Texas Melon

    We had a citizen drop off a watermelon to the station. If I had to guess, I think it must have weighed 80 pounds. It took a super size ice chest to ice it down. It was pretty good and the price was right. Click on the link below to check it out.

    Now that melon is just begging to be turned into "yuccaflutz"
    A local custom of adding alcohol to the melon, waiting for it to be absorbed then eating the melon.

    Summer a 69?I was cutting hair,workin as an Army recruiter,Woodstock New York.
    I was talking to two Kent State psych majors,trying to get em to join the National Guard.Liked to have had em talked into it but some black guitar player kept playin the National Anthem so damn loud,I couldn't tell whether they said yes or no.
    I met that farmer that let em put on the show and he said"I don't mind y'all usin my place but I didn't know you was gonna bring three quarters of a million people.
    That first couple hunnerd thousand didn't bother me so much but that last half a million sacred Hell outta my cows.
    And they Damn sure ain't gonna drink outta that lake!

    Yeah, but getting caught under those utters could hurt you. But it may be some pleasure in it any way. Have seen too many that looked like that!

    Any woman with them that size is just a pure waste.
    "There are only two things that i know are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And im not so sure about the former."

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.
