Ducks and hollies and melons

The Hollies were the best of the Beatles “clone” bands

I had to take a couple days away from the PC for various reasons, but I will be here when I can.
Tammy, take a look at the last few of these comments.
His net page.
Tarte is also on FB.
Mark is in his new house and has already murdered a holly shrub. I suppose it is for the best; sharp-pointed things can be dangerous to people whom are unwary or have had a beer or two. In 20 or so years when he retires, the house will have become a great investment, especially if he decides to live his golden years in Florida. Maybe he can move in beside Mike and Tammy, put up lots of security lights, own a pack of pit bulls and slobbering Great Danes, and be a perfect neighbor from up north. Be sure to have an outside speaker system so all of you can enjoy some down home Pavarotti.
Jola, our melons, other than watermelons, are mostly varieties of muskmelons (cantaloupes). A muskmelon has a green-yellow, rough, and slightly wrinkly feeling skin with a sweet, musky tasting yellow flesh. The honeydew is another variety of muskmelon which is a bit larger but has a smooth skin of a shade of green-yellow and a sweeter, greenish flesh. Another which is popular on the west coast of US is the casaba which has an almost white flesh.
Have a (add your own superlative) week, my friends.

  1. There are muskmelons in Polish shops; unfortunately they are rather expensive and I don’t buy them. If casaba’s flesh is almost white, so I usually eat CASABA. Of course we don’t use in Poland all these names (muskmelon, honeydew, casaba). There are simply MELONS here. Yep, as for melons, we are ignorants. πŸ˜‰
    Thanks for your clarification, my friend.

  2. It’s almost symphonic music. Beautiful!

    • The melons have become rather expensive here, too; $4-$7 for one. A melon is a melon. πŸ™‚
      This is my favorite Hollies song but it was never a well known one in the US.
      Thanks, my friend. πŸ™‚

      • In Poland: 16 PLN for one (for muskmelon). Maybe not too much but the level of our incomes is much lower than in USA.
        I love it: a melon is a melon. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
        I got back here to play this video once again. It’s excellent.

  3. Fortunately we can grow muskmelons in our gardens in E. Tenn. but the plants (vines) take up a lot of ground space so most people do not have them. My grandmother always grew a row of them, but they were small compared to what we have today but they were sweet. You can imagine the time she had keeping her grandson out of the melon patch in August when the fruit ripened.
    You can find the lyrics for Soldier’s Song here:
    Thanks Jola. πŸ™‚

    • You grow melons in your gardens as we grow tomatoes or carrots in our gardens. Thanks for your link, my friend. πŸ™‚ I will get back here tomorrow to copy and translate these words.

  4. We never had more than one row of melons; it takes a lot of space to grow them, space that could be used to grow carrots, radishes, and beets.
    Thanks, Jola. πŸ™‚

  5. I may be back in Florida someday. A Great Dane would be great except I imagine his poo is rather large and I’d rather not have to clean it up.

    Be Bop Deluxe is a good Beatles “clone ” band.
