    I am not a fisherman and i felt bad for the fish as it was hurting itself flopping around in the boat and bleeding and all.... i had to shut it off as i could not watch it die....sorry. I have said many times if I had to kill my food to eat it i would be a vegeterian and if I saw my dinner alive before it was cooked i cant eat it.......I even struggel in killing spiders and always say....please forgive me God for killing one of your creatures before i swat at it(i am afraid of spiders) so i only kill them if they are in my bedroom as I fear getting bit by one.

    LOL...have to show my hubby this one. That is hilarious - those guys need helmuts and a coat of armor! 19 fish in 4+ minutes and not a hook dipped in the water. Unreal!

Thanks Missy!

My South (Thank you, Vernon, for this and so much more!)

Monday, April 18, 2011

I love this. I got it from Vernon, who as most of you know, is from Maryland, having grown up in Michigan. He's a black man. He's also the best friend and brother a girl could ever ask for in this life (or the next life). I thank God for sending him, despite his reservations of how he'd be received here in the South, to my life, to the lives of my family. We are all the richer for it. He does his sister of the heart proud with this one! (I love you, Vernon!) Here's a photo of Vernon and another of him and his lovely wife, Randie.





~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

This was sent to me by my ex-coworker George. (He has since retired and moved back to Alabama with his wife) I thought it was an excellent dissertation on life here in the South today, and I knew that you would be interested in reading it also.
I still remember how apprehensive I was about coming here on my first visit to the South, because I still held a lot of the misconceptions about the life and people here. I remember, as I watched Mel-Mel trying to hop across the hop-scotch board, how I looked around and knew that I had found my place in the sun! I also remember with fondness, my buddy Toon's response to my desire to go gator hunting down here. (Are you CRAZY!)
I'm so glad that I took the chance and come here to visit. It opened my eyes to a whole new wonderful world I never knew existed! What a wonderful life I would have missed out on had I not taken that chance! What wonderful people I would not have had pleasure to know and love (and be loved by) if I had heeded my biased, ignorant Yankee upbringing!
This is going out to a lot of my still-ignorant Yankee brethren. Maybe a few of them will take the same chance and find the wonderful life that I have!

Your southern brother

This was written by Robert St. John, executive chef and owner of the Purple Parrot Cafe, Crescent City Grill and Mahogany Bar of Hattiesburg , MS.

Thirty years ago I visited my first cousin in Virginia . While hanging out with his friend, the discussion turned to popular movies of the day.

When I offered my two-cents on the authenticity and social relevance of the movie Billy Jack, one of the boys asked, in all seriousness; 'Do you guys have movie theaters down there?' To which I replied, 'Yep. We wear shoes too.'
Just three years ago, my wife and I were attending a food and wine seminar in Aspen , Colo. We were seated with two couples from Las Vegas . One of the Glitter Gulch gals was amused and downright rude when I described our restaurant as a fine-dining restaurant.
' Mississippi doesn't have fine-dining restaurants!' she insisted and nudged her companion. I fought back the strong desire to mention that she lived in the land that invented the 99-cent breakfast buffet.

I wanted badly to defend my state, my region, and my restaurant with a 15-minute soliloquy and public relations rant that would surely change her mind. It was at that precise moment that I was hit with a blinding jolt of enlightenment, and in a moment of complete and absolute clarity it dawned on me -- my South is the best-kept secret in the country. Why would I try to win this woman over? She might move down here.

I am always amused by Holly wood 's interpretation of the South. We are still, on occasion, depicted as a collective group of sweaty, stupid, backwards-minded, racist rednecks. The South of movies and TV, the Holly wood South, is not my South.

This is my South:


"My South is full of honest, hardworking people. My South is the birthplace of blues and jazz, and rock n' roll. It has banjo pickers and fiddle players, but it also has BB King, Muddy Waters, the Allman Brothers, Emmylou Harris and Elvis - and Leontyn Price.

My South is hot. My South smells of newly mowed grass. My South was kick the can, creek swimming, cane-pole fishing and bird hunting.

In my South, football is king, and the Southeastern Conference is the kingdom.

My South is home to the most beautiful women on the planet.

In my South, soul food and country cooking are the same thing.

My South is full of fig preserves, cornbread, butter beans, fried chicken, grits and catfish.

In my South we eat foie gras, caviar and truffles. In my South, our transistor radios introduced us to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones at the same time they were introduced to the rest of the country.

In my South, grandmothers cook a big lunch every Sunday, so big that we call it dinner (supper comes later).

In my South, family matters, deeply.

My South is boiled shrimp, blackberry cobbler, peach ice cream, banana pudding and oatmeal cream pies.

In my South people put peanuts in bottles of Coca-Cola and hot sauce on almost everything.

In my South the tea is iced and almost as sweet as the women. My South has air-conditioning.

My South is camellias, azaleas, wisteria and hydrangeas.

In my South, the only person that has to sit on the back of the bus is the last person that got on the bus.

In my South, people still say 'Yes, ma'am,' 'No ma'am,' 'Please' and 'Thank you.'
In my South, we all wear shoes....most of the time.

My South is the best-kept secret in the country.

Please continue to keep the secret....it keeps the idiots away."

    A lot of this list could have come from the lips of Julia Sugarbaker from "Designing Women". It all sounds so very familiar.
It's probably not something that was actually said on the show, but it seems as if it could have been.

    Check out the time...it is 3:20 a.m. WHO CAN BLAME HIM???

The first couple years after I retired, I had a part-time job driving a taxi for railroad crews...if you had driven by the white van parked on a lonely country road next to a railroad crossing in the wee hours of the morning...you would have seen me in an identical position...radio blasting, trying to stay awake!! emoticon
