Thanks, everyone, for the birthday greetings. I had a lovely day yesterday. Didn't do anything particularly special...just spent the day doing fun things in the studio with Sally and Bella as my companions.
Gonna party some today because Glenn's taking me to our favorite fish place for a mess o'catfish. This restaurant has been in existence for over 60 years and produces the best fried fish we've ever had...anywhere. Sometimes they have fried crappie, but that's rare.
We'll have the "catfish plate," which includes a bowl of white beans, a dish of slaw, several perfectly-done hush puppies, potatoes of our choice (I'll have baked. Glenn'll have fried.), a hefty onion slice, some big dill pickle spears, some homemade cornbread, and, because this is the south, sweet tea to drink.
If we have room, we might have (probably share) a piece of one of their many homemade pies for dessert. But, that is a big IF.
It's all sooooo good and we'll probably need a crane to get us out of the place and back into our truck. It will be worth every bite, though, and I'm looking forward to it.
How'd it go in Wayne's World, I think, "Party on, dude!"
