Okra cooked any way is good. Slimy is OK if it tastes good--easier to swallow.

Maggie,
You've just made me laugh! Oysters, escargot and even eggplant are some of my favorite things. I won't ask if you eat steamers...how about Dorsey's favorite lobster?

Hi Bruce!

No steamers, and prefer no whole belly anything....I was raised in the Midwest, just never learned to eat those things.

I do loooooove lobster, tho.

Lobster is just crawfish in the giant economy size. Never have tried lobster boiled in Zatarain's crawfish seasoning, but I bet it would be delicious!

No no no no nooooo.....nooooo Zatarains for lobster!

You just boil them up and dunk their bits in melted butter.

Or, let someone else tear their freshly cooked selves apart and serve it to you on a roll.

I’ve tried crawfish, but they are extremely labor intensive in my opinion, and not worth the effort when you can buy the tails frozen to make etouffe, etc.

I don’t understand the appeal of crawfish, but neither boiled peanuts or okra...just call me a Yankee.

I've had lobster that way, many times, and it's delicious. But I'm still tempted to try lobster at least once boiled with Cajun/Creole seasoning. Maybe only once, if it doesn't taste goodÖ

Iím sure it would taste okay, but would be a criminal offense to put all that strong seasoning onto a good lobster.

You wouldn't say that if lobster could be found in Louisiana territorial waters, because then spicy lobster would already be a thing. Cajuns will season and eat anything that's not trying to eat them, and most things that areó if they can get in the first bite!

But fortunately for lobster lovers everywhere, lobsters aren't found in Cajun Country.

I remain a loyal supporter of Faithworks Ministries in Brunswick, Georgia, who prayed for Doug and cared for the daughters and myself while he was in the hospital.

I get their newsletters a couple of times a year, and received this in my inbox this morning...the announcement of a Homeless Housing and Job Training Initiative. I love it.

http://thebrunswicknews.com/news/loc...e4f06dcc9.html

These are good people down there, doing good works, and headed by the most wonderful Dr. Wright Culpepper.


Temps had dropped here by about 40 degrees this morning, since late afternoon yesterday....it’s time, tho, and I’m ready for a little snow on the ground.

Be careful what one wishes for, of course, but I do love a nice blanket of fresh snow.


Got my fresh wreath on the front door, and a few seasonal things set out in the little house, but am going to again dispense with putting up a tree and all the usual decorations...it’s a helluva lot of work, putting up and then taking down a few weeks later.

I don’t do the holiday dinner or gatherings here any more, and my couple of days with the grands over their break will be at the motel with indoor pool, as has become the new tradition.

Too much energy and activity in this small space for those near grown kids...an indoor pool makes much more sense, and we will probably get a movie in this year, as well.

Proud of myself, am I, still managing and enjoying these, with no end in sight.


Darling daughter keeps me updated on the antics of Lenny, and he seems to be growing up.

At the dog park the other day, after chasing down one of those torn up park balls a couple of dozen times, he dug a hole and buried it, pushing dirt over it with his nose.

Talk about instinct kicking in.

Then...he repeatedly ran off, complete with snaps and barks, another dog that kept coming close to the hole...and when he had the ball in his mouth, he still guarded the empty hole.

Their little boy is growing up fast.

He’s a very, very good dog, but they are wisely purchasing some sessions with a private trainer to get him to stop jumping, and will hopefully add this to behavior to understand and manage...resource guarding, it seems to be called.

This dog is going to be 100lbs and hip high, before he is done growing, so a high level of obedience is going to be very important.

Yikes.

Maggie

This was Lenny as a small puppy, when he was adopted by his first owner.

He still has this sweet face.
