Good morning. All good. Been reading a book on the Navy in the days of Nelson. One story is a sailor telling about a keg of butter. All good, but small hairs in the butter. They tried to fish them out, but too many so they gave up and ate with the hairs. As they went down the keg, the hairs got more, and more. Until they found a mouse at the bottom, without any hair. Must have fallen in when the butter was liquid and drowned. Well, better than the attempt to bake rats in a pie with the pork. That diddnt end well.

Hmmm...more than a few jokes in that one! Hopefully none like robs "crab" parties!😱😁😁😁
This was not meant as a joke. That is how they dressed Lamb. The water would separate skin from meat. They say on sheep if you get wool against meat it ruins it or makes it taste bad or something.
I wouldn’t know because you won’t catch me eating sheep or goat. Closet I came was Antelope I shot in NM. Terrible tasting critter, yuk. hold the sage. Those that raise sheep around these parts are kinda like guys who rent pigs. All them sheep farmers wear them rubber knee boots. I always keep them boys in front of me where I can see them.

It must be time for Crab Story 3. On to 1972, we were living near the Wissahikon Creek, scene of the Battle of Germantown, 4 October 1777. The Redcoats handed the Colonials a serious defeat, and Washington's army retreated with massive casualties to Winter and train at Valley Forge. His Generals Greene and Mad Anthony Wayne have streets so named in the neighborhood. We lived on Wayne Avenue. My oldest daughter was conceived on Greene St, in our second floor apartment, born in South Dakota after the Big Move.

Somebody told us there was a trash can party a few blocks away, so we piled in the VW Bug and zipped over there. Walked in the living room, it was a typical Germantown party. There were people of every race, creed, color, and religion on Earth in one old Colonial mansion. Loud Rock n Roll. Dancing. Friendly conversation. In the middle of the living room was a new trash can, full of Everclear, Hawaiian Punch, Galliano, and lots of floating fruit. Jungle juice. We grabbed some cups, filled up, and went to find a seat. There was four of us. Found a corner with a couple chairs and a vacant spot on a couch. Sipping the Juice, catching a pretty good buzz. Looked over at the arm of the couch, and a crab was walking across it. I tapped Mrs R's arm, pointed it out to her, she and I knew the drill. Faster than instantly we grabbed the crew and ran out of there laughing. Got away clean, no pickups. And I've never been troubled by those saber-toothed crotch critters again. The trilogy ends.

I doubt not many of us would care to eat any food prepared in the 18th or 19th century.
Ketchup was invented originally to kill the taste of nasty meat. Wasn’t pretty back then, especially if you were aboard ship as @tranteruk has eluded to.

Still cool here in ca'jun land............!

@Maineiac
This dog found her a forever home in your great state! She was a bait dog, a rod was passed thru her front legs so she couldn't run away! Plus they cut her ears off with scissors! poor dog!
This is when Susan transported her to Miss. to a rescue. they kept her long enough to help heal her, then she went to Maine where she was adopted!

That is great that Susan and yourself are helping these poor dogs. Dogs are better than people at loving and being loyal.

Wow - can't believe it's been.....maybe 3 weeks! Crazy few weeks around here - have spent my free time sun-tanning in our unseasonably warm weather!!!! HA!! Good thing the snowblowers are tuned and ready to roll.
Last 2 days we were 50+ but tonight and for the next 48 hours, it sounds like the wind will be blowing a gale - current warnings are 60-70(?) mph winds ..... prairie hurricane - with snow - a blizzard will surely be upon us...
Not enough room to update on everything - managed to get to MN for 5 days to see daughter, SIL and the grandkids. What a blessing! Trips to the pond for skating and hockey, built some sled runs in the backyard, set up a rock tumbler for the kids - had good food and fellowship.
School music schedules got shook up a bit so that threw the daily routine out of whack.
Spending a lot of time at Squirt hockey games and tournaments for our 10 yr old grandson - that's a ton of fun.
Granddaughter is keeping us on our toes. She will turn 1 y/o in 2 weeks - and has been with us 40 weeks as of this week. 2 hours of therapy every day - still not crawling but she's a determined little girl.
Undecided about accepting the virus shot......
Thankfully by God's grace we've managed to stay healthy.....hope you are all starting healthy as well!
Hoping that as the dust (or snow settles) I can have the time to keep up to date...

25 on the coast. It is going to be cloudy, calm, and high of 35.

@cajun56 the dog looks so happy to be on a beach in Maine. Dogs love beaches! My dads goldens used to swim in the ocean every day. They would be a big happy mess of ice when the temps dropped lower than 0 F. That picture looks to be in southern Maine someplace judging by the sand. I am guessing in the Kennebunk area. A dogs life for me.

Kermit, good to hear from you and keep that sunscreen on.

@cajun56 I hope the people who hurt that dog are in jail at the least. I'd be happy to drive a piece of rebar through their legs so they can't run.

Good morning gents.

Jungle juice.
That craze went on down here in south Louisiana. We got the largest cooler with a spiget we could fine! City Park in New Iberia where we had the cooler set up behind a truck, no crabs involved! Late 70's and that cooler didn't last long.........!

The whole early spice trade was based on that as was the use of wine in cooking by the French. Some of the atomic reactor peppers eaten by other members got popular for that purpose. Sausages are also a throwback to the times when it was hard to keep meat. My father lived through the depression and said that neighbors got together when butchering to enjoy fresh meat and share as it was hard to keep back then. Canning vegetables is becoming a lost art and they used to can a lot of venison. Lutefisk is gradually losing popularity around here. It was cod kept in lye that would keep aboard ship. Got a Norwegian mad at me once. He was trying to give me a hard time and I told him the loudest thing in the world was a Norwegian and a sea gull fighting on the beach over apiece of rotten fish. He had it coming. Actually in Norway they do not eat lutefisk. It became popular in American settlements.
Sneauxing outside and we are supposed to get up to 6" Will be working on the tractor today, need an oil change.

DEP

@cajun56 This is Ala. She passed away a few months ago. Her ears were trimmed with scissors. My buddy's stepson offered the guys $100 for her when she was 7 mths old. She had it made from then on.
