    I'm wondering about Curtis also. Do you think THIS is why he hasn't checked in? He's in the lockup?

    Morning Mr.G , These hearing aids are Esentia rechargeable. A behind the ear thing with a tiny earbud. Bluetooth compatible, heck the unit even matches my hair color. I do wonder about Curt but I guess sooner or later he will check in.

    Some of those wild Florida Cougars that live in his neighborhood may have caught him alone and taken advantage of the guy.

    Good day Fred, there is a bridge a lot closer to Curt if he wanted to jump.

    Kevin you ever et any poke greens? You go out in the early summer and it grows mostly a long fence lines or under high lines where birds drop the seeds. You pick it when it is small and just a few leaves on it. A little ham hock or salt pork and boil it up. If you like other greens you will like it. Not hard to get if you don't mind the chiggers and the occasional snake.

    Oh they say it is poison but there are a lot of folks that et a bunch of it. Why they call it salad I don't know. It looks just like cooked spinach or mustard greens when you cook it

    Around here, my sweetie collects young dandelion greens. Not bad if you don't let them get bitter.

    Hey David, I think that is the way with most greens. That poke weed will get five or six feet tall and make those purple berries, way past eating at that stage.

    Hey Fred, it comes from bird dropping seeds around. I have probably ate a pick up load of that stuff growing up. Like all greens a big grocery sack of that will cook down to a large pan full. Never hurt any one in my family. Maybe the southern stain is different than up north stuff.

    Aughh.
    I got my second shot yesterday. Then rototilled the garden.
    I feel like I fell down the stairs.
    Its 40º today with a steady drizzle and I'm bout freezing to death.
    Made it to the shop where all I could do was clean out a varnish brush.
    Tonight we are having a birthday dinner for my son, I'm going to bee just a barrel of laughs.
    A toke and some tequila might seem to be in order. It might just put me to sleep.

    Well Kevin I don't smoke and really never did, a couple of cigars and maybe three cigs. I have been in rooms where the smoke was so thick you had to part it to see where you were going. The tobacco kind and the herbal Kind. Anything I smoke is on the grill.

    y'all have never had my greens

    just say'n

    modeled after my mom's maid's greens
    collards, stripped from their stems simmered with smoked hamhock or hogjawl and sugar
    served with homemaid pepper sauce and skillet cornbread

    bitter, sweet, salty, and hot all at the same time
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    All the post holes I dug were with post hole diggers a wrecking bar and at times dynamite. There might be a story or two there.

    When I lived in Texas, I helped my assistant's husband dig a half dozen post holes at their place while the kids & women played with the horses and tended the grill. It was caliche. As you say, very little digging involved. Lotsa sledge and bar work. Only after we got it busted up could we pluck it out with the clamshells. One more reason not to live in crazy places!!! <G>

    I loved much of the Southern cooking when I lived down there. So much good stuff.

    When I was on-site at the Civic Convention Center project I'd always walk up to Franklin's for a bbq lunch. I wanted to try it all, but it was hard to tear myself away from the brisket. Never did care much for all the stinkin' WonderBread, though. I suspect that is a historical accident that lingers... and detracts.

    My boss was Spanish/Basque, and he had a Basque restaurant he was partial to. I remember a delicious potato/tuna stew. And being surprised at how good baby squid in its own ink was.

    But nowhere does cornbread like the South. Pretty much anywhere I had it in Texas... and my own grannies (she was from N. Carolina). And buttermilk biscuits with gravy? Delicioso!! And I'm not a huge fried chicken guy... but they did it right. And I don't think I ever ran across a bowl of chili that wasn't superior.
