First Watermelon of Summer

Today I purchased my first watermelon of the summer. I greet the following Mark Twain quotation about watermelon with an exuberant hallelujah:

It is the chief of this world's luxuries, king by the grace of God over all the fruits of the earth. When one has tasted it, he knows what the angels eat. It was not a Southern watermelon that Eve took; we know it because she repented.
May you pick out the perfect melon,
