Wherein a most random conversation reveals waitress wisdom and I learn that even if you can’t go home again, you can at least take your leftover raw oysters with you, wherever you’re going.

I am no fan of pet-centric blogs, websites, etc, and really thought I would have made it further than 2 posts before caving in to even a hint of such myself. But somethings are too good to pass up, especially when there’s a bad pun to go along with it (but are there good puns, or are puns better the worse they are?).

So it’s a low, grey Saturday in the Red Stick and I’ve spent the morning catching up on college football’s national picture and doing some digital housekeeping (thus ignoring the more needed physical housekeeping). I had been preparing for the Alabama vs LSU game today to be a warm one, but it looks like it will end up being the coldest game of the year so far. (more…)

Hi. Well, that part was easy enough. Where are the trumpets, the banners, the fanfare? Not here. It seems I’m back with a whisper, so lean in a little closer, please. Actually, that’s not really necessary, is it?. The room isn’t crowded. Chances are that you’re the only one here. So, sit for a minute. Perhaps you’d like to take off your shoes and run your sock feet through the carpet while I put on a pot of tea? Maybe you can catch me up on you while I catch you up on me. (more…)
