Maple leaves will be green
In the spring, when they grow
Syrup is amber,
And now sap does flow,
As truth from a doggerel
Philosopher's lip:
Much sweetness can come
From a good, steady drip

Happy Birthday, gnu.

YO! MOD! Surely I warrant being in the BS section? Maybe even below the line below the line?

I know (why) Beer doesn't go slumming anymore so I understand why he posted it here.

Thanks, Beer and all.

YO! MOD! Surely my gname should be in the title? Some people just don't do Bday threads unless they know it's in regard to a kind, intelligent, caring, witty, handsome... oh... okay... whatever you wanna do.

Lovely day! Two dozen roses, half white, half red fer Me mum... she did all the work over the last 56 years and nine months. I get her flowers every year on my Bday on accounta she is the one that did all the work, right?. (YEAH! It IS sweet... and the lass I always hope serves me at my bank thinks so, too. She sang Happies to me when my account came up on her screen today and she saw it was my Bday. She's nice... she's single... she sang the first line of Happy Bday to me. I would be smitten if I was a kitten.)

Cooked up scallops and went for takeout clam platters at Deluxe. Five minutes from fryer to plate. Mum and I pigged out. I am glad I could make HER day special for her. She's my rock... a grand old gal. Every happy I get from yees is for her far more than me

If I had any of that maple whisky left that came home from Canada with us late last year, I would raise a glass.....but I can't, it's all gone, more's the pity! So you will just have to settle for the aforementioned hug.

From: gnu

Thanks again, all. Q... screw the clams, buddy, ye wanna taste me scallops! Truth be told, DeLuxe would do well to leave em in the fryer for ONE more minute.

Now. if I was a "deep fryin man", I would deep fry oysters in peanut oil... SHHHHHHHHHHHHH!... that there is a family secret. Not really that big a deal on accounta I haven't told you the recipe for the coating and I won't until I know I will die in short order from natural causes... if I divulged the coating recipe before then, then would be now and not natural.

BTW, believe it or not, I prefer fried mussels but I won't eat em as per past thread posts by moi about the possible toxins (and, YES, I do know everything is just peachy keen now due to the enhanced safety procedures that have... screw that).

I am just now stuffed with salt cod fish cakes and fried eggs... great breakky, great lunch, great supper, great snack.

Oysters should be eaten raw, but the occasional po' boy sandwich with them lightly fried (of course, peanut oil) wouldn't be refused.

Had any crab cakes lately? I have been salivating over the thought; now if I can get some good fresh crab meat.

Oysters are best raw but one has to shuck them personally to get the full intimacy of the experience and I haven't had a shuck in over 15 years.... sniff

Next month, Sandra, but we go to France for a couple of nights about this time of year irrespective of that. We have a quick trip up to Belgium so I can buy my cheroots (less than half price compared to the UK) and, of course, a couple of great meals!
