Etcetera, etcetera…

SQUARE watermelons?  My daughter who was just up to Athens for a visit told me about square watermelons, that in China perhaps it was that when watermelons get to a certain size they bind them so that they continue growing as squares.  I had trouble believing that but when I looked it up on Google I discovered that on the internet you can purchase square watermelon seeds.  The two stories don’t quite fit together, and maybe the seed ad was a joke, but what do you think?  I’m tempted to reject  the idea out of hand but then I’m an old fogey I know.  I don’t like messing with nature or much else, but politics.

COIN  dollar bills?  She also brought with her some coins that said they were one dollars worth of USA money.  I didn’t believe her, and insisted she try to  buy something at Seaman’s next door with them.  She was successful, to my surprise.  They sure do different down south!  I had suspected they were bitcoins or something.  At my recent birthday party, which she threw for me, no one had heard of such a thing, either.
