Bill and His Trout


Hey, Gang,

I talked to Billy Ray tonight (he hates to be called Billy Ray, he wants to be called Bill, I only call him that to bug him), and he sent me some pics of him and the rainbow trout he caught today. He said the biggest one was 2 lbs. It was a female, full of eggs. I suppose some of you might like trout caviar, but not this hick country girl, thanks very muchly. I have made a deal with Bill---When he comes to visit, he brings me trout, and I make him homemade yeast rolls and cinnamon rolls. I can already taste that trout.........lightly floured, pan fried in real butter, golden brown, with fresh lemon juice squeezed over it.................
Mmmmmmmmmm, I can hardly wait. He says he has some already stored for me in the freezer, to bring when he and Polly come for a visit this summer. My mouth is watering right now. Sigh.................

Nothing exciting happened today, folks, and I waited till after midnight to post again, on the off-chance SOMETHING exciting might happen, :) I may try to go pick up my meds on the Sr. Citizen van tomorrow, if I can make arrangements to get there at the right time. You are supposed to have an appointment to pick up meds, but I don't know if it will be too short notice, or not. Just have to get up and call and see what I can do, I guess. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. We need a few things from the grocery store, too, nothing absolutely necessary, just things like sugar and tea bags, potatoes, etc. Note to my sisters: that is not a hint, we have it covered. I can hear the radar clicking, and the ears perking up, so thanks in advance for thinking of us, and being concerned about us. I love you, sisters. :)

We are so blessed in our family, sisters, that we are so close and that we are there to help each other. When Mama was alive and even now, we have said many times, if one of us has a bean, and another one is hungry, we'll split that bean however many ways we need to, to make sure everyone has some of it. We have proven it, too, many times over the years as we have helped one another, and I am sure we will be there for one another in the future. Did I say I loved you, sisters? :)

My bed is calling me, and I still have to feed Herman, and Kermit and Miss Piggy, so I will close and try to post something tomorrow about my exciting trip to Jonesboro. Love to all.........

Bring it on, sis. You know it will be used here, sooner or later. For Sunday Dinner if no other time. That proverbial plague of locusts will pick that stuff clean in no time flat, as we know, :)

I appreciate all you do for us, and the other sisters, too. Date still on for this weekend, sis?

Love you, Johnny, Jon, and the rest of the crew.......
