My husband made up a song he calls, “Do you know the watermelon horse?,” based on the song about the muffin man. When the children don’t want to get dressed he tells them a story about a child who tries to buy watermelon. The watermelon man won’t sell to the child because he or she doesn’t have on a shirt, shoes, or whatever.
The police closed off our street yet a third time on Friday because of what turned out to be a bag of used clothes left at the bus stop. This time of year people often leave used clothes in good condition at the side of the road. This bag was closed but I don’t know what is happening. Perhaps the neighbors have become more vigilant.
