Re: PICTURE POST II!

I just noticed this about a week ago and I finally had a chance today to stop and get a picture. Some enterprising young people removed the M from Smith Street to make it Sith Street. This is a road right next to LaMoyne College, so it has to be some collegian hijinks, right?

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I I get the feeling that if it were a college prank they'd substitute the H for the missing M.

But who knows.... colleges have their share of prankster nerds.

It's been about a week or so since the last time I had time to read any threads, so forgive me for backtracking a bit...

No gator meat. Not that I'm aware of or remember, that much I know. I've had friends and relatives prepare a wide variety of different meats over the years for get-togethers but I don't think reptile (other than snake meat) has ever been on the menu.
Go to New Orleans. I had gator sausage there about 15 years ago, and it was delicious.

I've also had emu (there are emu farms in southwestern Ontario, around Windsor) and bison. I wouldn't mind trying kangaroo, but I'd have to make a special trip to find any. (Apparently there's a place downtown that carries kangaroo, camel and ostrich meat. I might be able to get down there next weekend... hmmmm.)

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Never tried any emu meat. Is it anything like ostrich meat? I'm guessing a big Yes for some obvious reasons. I'd like to taste some.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I don't recall ever having had ostrich, so I can't compare from personal experience, but I've heard that they're very similar.

My friend and I went to Denver for a football game once, and there is a restaurant there called The Buckhorn Exchange. They have all kinds of game.

We had alligator strips, rattlesnake dip, Rocky Mountain Oysters, and buffalo prime rib.

We had to roll out of there...





I thought the alligator was too chewy. JMHO

Re: PICTURE POST II!

In this area and corner of the country if you say you haven't tasted squirrel or rabbit meat at least once you get some odd looks. And, of course, there are the millions of jokes about possum meat and roadkill but I've never once had any possum meat unless it was on a table or in a dish and I wasn't aware that it was possum at the time.

I did learn from a Columbo episode a long time ago that squirrel meat can make some very delicious chili.

I don't know why they'd tell jokes about meat like that. I mean, it's already "fresh off the grill", isn't it? And you're being healthy: eating free range, organically raised, automotively processed food products.

If you're ever in Chico you can hit up a place called The Tackle Box that does up some pretty decent grilled and fried gator. They have all sorts of game too, and hot bartenders dancing on the bar, and a gun store connected to the place. It is basically a redneck honkeytonk nirvana.

Did my nails tonight. Still need to clean up a little, but I love the color.



This is what I wore earlier this week.

We met some friends tonight at Sandra Dee's, a BBQ/southern restaurant in downtown Sacramento. We had alligator strips, and they were quite good! And spicy, like the gumbo.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Finally had my son Ian's birthday party. He wanted an Avengers themed costume birthday party. So everyone showed up in Super Hero costumes, it was a lot of fun. We had his party at the YMCA, it was great. They had Super Hero related activities and art projects, they made their own Super Hero masks.

Here is his cake, Captain America's Shield
