You Know You Have Friends in High Places

…when the owner of John Brown Melons, fourth generation (since 1876) melon growers from Carmi, Illinois, personally delivers a watermelon the size of a suckling pig to the BBPiT on a gig.

You know you have a good man when he hauls the giant thing home to share, cuts it open with a knife the size of a machete and cleans up the whole delicious mess afterward. Sweet sweet sweet.

  1. Once the baker who lived down the road from us delivered homemade German pretzel bread at 7am, after cooking them in his wood-fired oven. You just always remember moments like that. Nice melon!
