    Default Watermelon Pickles. . .

    .. . . are on the horizon. I bought a melon that has a rind that's about
    1/2-3/4" thick on about 2/3 of it. Woo-hoo!

    Yuck! You and Miz Anne can eat those nasty things but I don't care for
    them. Eat the watermelon, chunk the rind is my motto.

    yumyum...I did a batch a couple of years ago. I didn't get any feed back
    from anyone I gifted a jar to, so I guess I wont be making them again.....

    I suspect some people think they are just too weird

    I'll never forget the year I was making waddermellin pikkles for my Farmers'
    Market stall. A coupla ladies were in town for mama's funeral and they
    bought some pikkles like their mama made for their Papa. Pickled peaches,
    too. We all cried.
    Personally. I think they're way too sweet. I might try some crispy & lots
    less sweet.
    Edrena,
    off on a bike run with Ol' Whiskerface, but in the Baja beetle (cause of
    the wheelchair). After all - makimg noise is the point, right?
    Vrrooom. And taking pickles for the picnic.

    For me, I just don't like the spices in them. I'm not a fan of the
    "warm" spices like cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, etc. One day, I will try
    to make them as a regular sweet pickle without those spices, and see if
    I like them more.

    And now they are done. Two pints for Fair entries and four half pints
    for some lucky souls. :-)

    Edrena,
    How is Ol' Fuzzface doing? Tell him one of your cyber friends is asking
    after him and said a prayer for his recovery.

    He's agreeing that the worst part of cancer can be NOT dying. Pray for
    smokers to quit. I met a youngish biker at the phone store smelling of
    smoke, turned out to be a guy from a religious motorcycle ministry. They
    keep him company. They held a small group that prayed that ol' cx right out
    of his body. We'll see. I pray for his comfort and awareness of love. The
    new biker buddy hasn't smoked in over 4 weeks.
    Point - I stopped asking cx friends "How're you doing?" instead, I ask
    "What joy did you find in the world today?" Sometimes that first cup of
    coffee is the best we can do. Watching cats play, sunsets, etc.
    We appeciate friends who pray for us. He's not religious, but he
    appreciates the thoughts and time.
    God bless us, every one.

    great post, Edrena. I quit almost 5 years ago, my hubby almost 9 months
    ago. I just pray that we both quit soon enough....

    In August of this year I will have been smoke free for 15 years. My
    doctors say my lungs have returned to as good as they will get at my
    age. People, I smoked five packs of king size cigarettes a day for
    fifteen years and smoked anywhere from a half pack to two packs a day
    for the thirty-five years before that. Cigarettes caused my first heart
    attack, the gases from tobacco making my blood so thick that a small
    clot couldn't pass through an artery.

    If you're currently smoking, quit now, if you need help quitting come to
    my house and I will hit you with a stick until you do quit. I was so
    hard-headed I quit for two years after my first heart attack and then
    went right back to smoking, hitting five packs a day again within two
    days. It took a second heart attack to teach me a lesson. My elder
    sister is on oxygen for the rest of her life due to emphysema caused by
    sixty years of smoking.

    Stepping down on my soap box I will say: STOP SMOKING WHILE YOU CAN.
