Change of Plans

Being the dedicated employee that I am...I'm back on the road*. So, we just gonna do something different.




I assume y'all will have heard this classic rock....classic. Ballsy riffs and a squealing lead, hollered lyrics...classic. You should hear it on the gigantic speakers at Davis-Wade. It really comes to full throat on those arena sized speakers.

Of course, none of this changes the fact that the song is nonsense. These fella's were from New York or someplace. One of 'em might even have been a Canadian. It's painfully obvious that they looked at map and picked a town on the river...for the setting.

It's the tale of a Cajun lady that lives in Louisiana, across the Mississippi River from Vicksburg. I'm not saying a Coonass has never stopped for gas in Waterproof or Delta but, at that point on the river, you're a lot closer to Arkansas than you are Lafayette (Laugh-a-et). That's on the map. In spirit...you are in Arkansas.

She might as well have been living at the rest stop in Cleveland, Ohio where they sell Boudin.

"Boudin?"

"Yeah..it's a sausage they make in Louisiana."

"Yes ma'am," I couldn't help but chuckle, "I've ate a lot of Boudin. I just can't believe I'm seeing it here."

I was as polite about as I could be but, I immediately felt bad when I realized how disappointed she was that I had stole her thunder. I guarantee she had plenty more opportunities to wow the yokels round there. Besides, I was flabbergasted.

It weren't real Boudin anyway...you can't sell blood.

Anyway, I'll tell you what they do have in north Louisiana...the Robertsons.



A family of good'uns that have made a pile a money with handmade duck calls.

Sorry about the commercials..if the embeds even work...but, it's worth it. They play it up and clown but, between the lines you'll find the best representation of Southerners that's ever been on television.



If you live over here you've seen Duck Dynasty..or at least heard of it. I don't know how our British readers get American TV but, if you get the chance check it out.

Disclaimer for C...they hunt. They eat what they hunt though and don't eat meat if they didn't kill it themselves. I can't help but see that as a moral step up...they are off the grid and the meat Industry would go broke if it was up to these folks.




P.S. The Church of Christ is not a cult ninnies.

*Told y'all I'd go if it involved New Orleans.

    1. He's funny fella...you'll have to see the clip when he sits down for a tea party with the grand daughters and demands to have his nails painted too.

      They come from nothing and made millions.

  2. What the hell is bloodless boudin? Sounds disgusting. And why can't you sell blood there?

    1. Well, I guess it's not technically correct to say you can't sell blood but, the restrictions on it make it difficult as a commercial enterprise.

      As a result Boudin Blanc is what most people round here think of when they think of Boudin...there's still some old timey red stuff out there but, you'd probably have to buy it straight from a slaughter house.

  3. Can you get Black Pudding (aka Blood Sausage) in the South? It's made from pig's blood, fried, and served as part of a big greasy breakfast. A mouthful with a bit of fried egg-yolk, bacon, a sliver of fried tomato and a chunk of fried bread, all washed down with a glug of milky tea is an experience not to be missed. You probably had some while you were over here. The further North you go in Britain, the earlier people die, and that may have something to do with their taste for Black Pudding (plus the cigarettes and the booze and the deep-fried Mars Bars, of course).

    There's a very up-market restaurant called Le Boudin Blanc in London. I presume they serve it.

    1. I ate a lot of black pudding every morning for the couple of weeks I spent in Ireland. It was tasty...and entirely unlike the patty sausage we eat at breakfast.

      The further South you go over here the sooner you die...which figures.

      One thing we know...in order for a culture to call itself civilized, it must eat a hot breakfast.

    2. should be NOT entirely unlike the patty sausage we have for breakfast.

    3. "One thing we know...in order for a culture to call itself civilized, it must eat a hot breakfast"

      These are wise, wise words.

  4. Hey, I like 'em! (And don't you go worrying about me and that whole hunting thing 'cause if they eat what they kill then I can absolutely deal with that! Without wanting to get into a big debate about the whole meat thing, but I don't have a problem with the notion that humans evolved as natural hunters and are carnivorous just like many other creatures, I just don't wish to eat it myself and can't bear the thought of cruelty and the *unnecessary* killing of animals...)

    Work hard, nap hard, indeed, and of course the bit that I can really go for is, "take a sip of tea". And why have ZZ Top suddenly come into my head?

    Hope you're finding time to take a sip of tea too.

    1. I didn't figure you'd object...I just didn't want you to be startled if you pulled a clip and they were skining bull frogs....and dressin' a pig.

      Got to have the tea...got to.

  9. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a variety of
    websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  11. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and appearance. I must say that you've done
    a awesome job with this. In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on
    Firefox. Outstanding Blog!

  16. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my
    own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm
    looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  18. Hey there! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had
    to ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as
    yours require a lot of work? I'm completely new to blogging however I do write in my journal every day. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience
    and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!

  21. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    But imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts
    more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website
    could certainly be one of the best in its field. Awesome blog!

  22. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see
    if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.

    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
