A Seafood Boil to Remember!

Susan caught Ms Megabyte2 and I relaxing on their patio a few hours before our big Seafood Boil took place. We were both all spiffed up and I was wearing my new Harley shirt that Jutta brought me all the way from Germany.  We both knew things would be hoppin' soon and the guests would be arriving..

Ah Ha, here we go!! Lisa, Pat's daughter and Ms Pat along with her son Scott, watch as JRoger pours our outstanding Shrimp Boil on a serving tray. It looked and smelled "ummm good"! It contained potatos, corn, sausage, and lots of shrimp. JRoger also had the Mullet all "smoked" to perfection, it was delicious!! You can tell from the smile on his face that he loves to cook.....and I love to let him!!

Looks mighty good to about you? Oh Boy, this is what we've been waiting for!! Let's eat!

Scott is a Certified Licensed Nuisance Alligator Trapper and always has plenty of Alligator meat. Here he is cooking some up for us. I think I have had some before but it has been a long time. I was anxious to give it a try again. I know that if it is cooked right, it's good and Scott knew exactly how to do it up right! It was delicious.

Here it is all battered up and ready for the cooker.  Scott has his own special spices and seasonings that he uses and this time he added some of JRogers "Rub" recipe.  DELICIOUS!!

We were so happy that our previous neighbors and good friends Rhoda and Chuck could join us. Chuck was such a good neighbor that I hired him to work for me.  He was one of my top employees. Chuck is now retired and Rhoda only has a few months to go before she hangs it up.. They are considering getting a motorhome and spent some time checking out our Foretravel.

Going around the table that is Lisa, Ms Pats oldest daughter, then Ms Pat and behind her is daughter- in-law Shelly, then Scott, Ms Pats youngest, standing behind Scott is Lisa's husband Randy, then we have JRoger and Susan our gracious hosts. It is so nice of them to open their place to all of our friends and family when we are here. Everyone is enjoying all the food. Including me!!

The next morning it was Monday and this is JRoger, Susan and their Kitty "Scratchy" ready to take off on the annual Pheasant Hunt in the great state of (where else?) SOUTH DAKOTA.  We thank them from the bottom of our hearts for being such wonderful hosts. We always have so much fun with them and will never forget all our great experiences with these super friends!!

JRoger and Susan have a real nice place out here in the woods.  They assured us and we knew we were welcome to stay on at their place after they had gone but we decided it would be best to go closer to all the kids, so we moved about 25 miles West to the Big Oak RV Park in Tallahassee.

This is like an old home coming, as we stayed here for years and years when we came home to see the kids...  Karen is still the Manager and was glad to see us again.  She welcomed us with open arms.

So we are all settled in at Big Oak,

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!

We continue to thank our Father above for all he provides...

Thanks for stopping by.
