Summer Stock Sunday - 28

My vintage look at summer for Summer Stock Sunday, hosted by Robin at Around the Island.

Just got off the phone with my nearly-all-my-life friend, Mary, seen below with me eating drippy watermelon forty years ago. We're making plans to meet when my husband and I head for Toronto over Christmas.

This is an old Polaroid shot, so what looks like a burning ember on Mary's shirt is just the chemical fixatives deteriorating somewhat on the photograph.

Have you had your drippy watermelon yet this summer? If not, there's still time.

Aw, I absolutely LOVE this nostalgic moment captured. But how much richer it is due to your lasting friendship. Beautiful!

I am so late getting around this week... We love watermelon, but here in Israel it gets cut up and eaten with a fork out of a communal bowl, much less drippy that way ;).
