    The thing I've never had, which looks just disgustingly good, is biscuits and gravy.

    The only people that I ever see eat biscuits and gravy are old people with no teeth. True story.

    I was aware that the gravy was made with pork sausage, hence the reason why I've never had it.

    I have been in the South you know. I have clients in Columbus and Duluth, Georgia and Birmingham, Alabama.

    This reminds me of my friend Jon. Once when we were like 6 or 7 or so he came over to spend the night. So my Mom cooked dinner, just being absent minded, she totally just spaced him being Jewish. Anyway she had made ham for dinner. She realized what she did right as she put it on the table and was like oh crap, and asked him if she could make him something else. He said, no, that he never got to eat ham at home, but liked it. He proceeded to destroy it. Still makes me laugh to this day.

    It's a thing of beauty. I do it every year October thru the end of January. A weekend rarely goes by during that time frame that I am not out in the woods both days either all day or 1/2 the day.

    I figured that was why you hadn't had it, and I did know you've been in the South.

    I respect your adherence to Kosher eating.

    Dude... Seriously? I know you are a city slicker and all but come on, ho cakes? And pie safes?

    I really count myself as fortunate that I've had both sets of grandparents live until I was 30, and had two great grands until I was 20. My grandfather told in his memoirs that his father (one of the grands that I knew) installed one light bulb above the kitchen table about 3 months before power arrived.

    When the kids arrived home from school to see it burning, that was the most magical experience they ever encountered, even with todays leaps in tech.

    The second electrical device bought was an ice box. (that's not a refrigerator, it was for keeping your block of ice frozen longer than the wood shavings in the barn did.) This brought about refrigerators, which brought an end to the pie safe.

    I'm reminded that we southerners only recently got power down here. But I wouldn't trade anything for the stories.

    Buff, ever read "The old Man and the Boy" by Robert Ruark?? Great southern stories of granddad and grandson..trust me you'll love it.

    In 1953, Ruark began writing a series for Field & Stream magazine entitled The Old Man and the Boy. Considered largely autobiographical (although technically fiction), this heartwarming series ran until late 1961. The stories were characterized by the philosophical musings of the Old Man, who was modeled after both of Ruark's grandfathers, but mostly on Captain Edward "Ned" Hall Adkins, Ruark's maternal grandfather. In the stories, young Bob Ruark grows up hunting and fishing in coastal North Carolina, always guided by the Old Man

    You don't have to hunt. A jar of creamy JIF, a little time invested in gaining its trust, and finally a good piece of rope, and you can work over about any dog.

    Nice. Ha ha.

    Sometimes I wish I hunted just so I could work over a good bird dog.

    This is one of the true pleasures in life.

    Time to, er, resurrect the old joke about the priest and the rabbi having lunch. The rabbi orders a plain hamburger and a Coke, the priest a grilled ham and cheese sandwich and a milk shake.

    P - "Tell me Rabbi, have you ever had a ham sandwich?"

    R - "Yes, once long ago before I got religion. It was good.
    By the way, Father, have you ever had sex?"

    P - "Yes, once, with my girlfriend, long before I entered the seminary."

    pause

    R - "Beats a ham sandwich, no?"

    That's funny. When I was in second grade, I slept over at a house of a friend who wasn't Jewish. For dinner, they had milk out on the table. I remember thinking to myself how weird it was to have milk at dinner.
    If you ever google up "sh-t Jews say to goys," one of the lines is always "why do you drink so much milk?" Eden's roommate fills her fridge with milk; Eden can't figure out how anybody drinks so much of that stuff.

    What's the difference between jonny cakes and regular pancakes?

    All of this reminds me of a scene in To Kill A Mockingbird:
