Opening the refrigerator this morning to get cream for my coffee, I saw IT again on the second shelf near the back.
It is a half of a honeydew melon that for some reason has no sweetness.

Choctaw Jim’s on U.S. 421 has been a suburban Campbellsburg fixture for many years. The store is packed to the rafters with Native American jewelry, western wear, motorcycle gear and handcrafted furniture.
