Sadly, it's not like front row seats at a Gallagher show, just a whole bunch of split watermelons.

Having had to clean up after Gallagher shows, I think we should all be thankful for that!

I just put watermelons on my list of things from China to avoid.  We fed our dogs toxic Alpo a few years ago and it killed both of them.

I've told myself many times that if I ever heard this sentence, I would be shocked. Very surprised at the least. But, coming from Denny, some how, I did not even flinch.  :-\
