My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Well, it's just sad when you make a comment on your OWN blog and it gets lost!!

So you make it a post instead!

Yes, Mudbugs are Crawfish. So named cuz they live in the mud. I've been crawfish fishing. It's wild.

You look in the mud around a small body of water (like a ditch) for what look like giant anthills with holes in the top. Then you take a piece of bacon and tie it on the end of a string and drop it down the hole. You wait for the crawfish to grab hold then pull him out.

And if you want to hear music that makes my soul smile turn up the sound when you go to that link!

{Yes, I can play the spoons and the washboard...at least I once could...haven't tried in awhile}

And MammyT, if'n you don't like crawfish then it's more for me...but I'd have to ask how you had it cooked if it tasted like dirty water and where they came from and how fresh they were and what month you ate them in. There are definite guidelines for eating crawfish (kinda like oysters) and (as my hubby once found out) you can get really sick from not following these (and they don't taste so good). Also, crawfish have a lot of iodine in them so you can really overdo if you eat too much (sigh, tis a sad sad thing too!)

To Ma Kettle, or PenofJen, or Humble Wife, or Happy Hippie Lady....or whatever her name is this week.....

rolie polies are also called doodle bugs in my family. I used to have hours of fun with them. And will again once the kids are old enough to find them I'm sure.





Diane, according to this they're not sow bugs..... go figure

Well folks, that's it from me for awhile. I'll try to remember to weigh in before I eat this week so to post the Brown Plate Special update. I haven't been doing so well lately. And I'm off tonight and tomorrow night. So it's off to work on another Unfinished Project!

Have a Good Day folks!
