The 2nd group is growing really well (potted from a guy near Leesville). The first group (bare root from Forest Hills) never did a thing. Now if I'm able to take them back from the squirrels in 10 years I'll be doing real good. ROFL

Nellie, looking forward to seeing you there. I have only shot with you once before, and that was several years ago when I was just starting out....I was a quiet shy guy back then...lol... so I didnt actually talk to a lot of people back then

Boy talk about a small world. I was having lunch today with one our new shooters and his wife. It turns out she used to know a friend who was involved in "some kinda shootin", maybe cowboy!! Said she went to High School with her in "Drycreek" and her name was "Mary Nell Cole. Wonder who that could be??!! Well Nellie, you're in for a surprise high school reunion with one of your old friends. Her married name is Carol Kibler, her Dad was retired USAF. Ring any bells? She'll be at Bayou Blast with her husband, daughter, and son. B)

For all you out of towners looking for a room. We just got word that the Red Roof Inn is going to set aside a block of rooms for us. It's located about 10 minutes from the range. Will give you more details, price etc. soon.

Had crawfish last night. Mmm Mmm good! It wasn't easy but I do believe I finished off this years crop. There may be a few straglers I over-looked, but I doubt it.

Got our reserves made at the Red Roof did y'all get a rate cheaper than making a reservation on the internet?

Now that's not neighborly at all. Maybe some more will materialize by the time we get there.

We're headed that way next Tuesday (6 and a wakeup?)

For you out of towners looking for a room. I have the details for rooms at the Red Roof Inn on Hwy 397. Room rate is $67.99 plus tax per night. This is for a non-smoking room with two beds. Breakfast is included. Sorry Noz they don't serve crawfish and eggs, I checked. This rate is good from March 10th to March 12th. If you call to make reservations the code is 704 Mike. The phone # is 337-990-0165. If you have any questions or problems let me know.

I'm surprised that some of the "locals" haven't given more info on eats, so I'm gonna throw my $.02 on the fire.....I used to live in the area (and still only live an hour or so away) (and married a girl from there.... :rolleyes: ) and there's good eats to be had in LC!

 

Mudbugs....I'd do Steamboat Bills (which was mentioned earlier) on I-10. To me, it's the best source of boiled crawfish that don't come outta my own pot. Steamboat Bill's

 

 

Cajun.....my favorite restaurant in LC (and a top 5 nationwide for me) is Pat's of Hendersons Pat's

 

I've also eaten at Billedeaux's (though not for a few years now) and it's a little more relaxed but everything I've eaten there was great.

 

Lookin' forward to seein' all ya'll there!

How can you eat something called "Mudbugs"???

Hmmmm....(1) break, (2) peel, (3) eat, (4) smile, (5) repeat

 

***(real coonies can insert "suck head" between steps 1 & 2) ;)

 

 

An old friend says "If you got two adult men and a 5 gallon bucket of mud bugs, you got a fist fight" "2.5 gallons is not enough for a grown man!"

 

I taught my grand daughter to eat them AND suck the head at a BassPro Shop Sunday Brunch at Hemingway's Restaurant. She was about 6 and we grossed out all of the nearby patrons. This is the same youngun that, at bout the same age, watched me pull the breasts out of a bunch of doves. She finally told me that she thought she could pull the breasts if I would cut the wings off for her. Does she have her Granpa wrapped around her finger? Yup! She's 22 now, married and still my baby.

 

Complicated Lady, We'll have to go out to one of the restaurants listed above and get you started. Lorrie will eat them but she would much rather have shrimp.

You mean suckin the heads isn't the only way to do it? That's the way I learned to eat dem mudbugs. Head in left hand, suck head while pinching tail with right hand.

If ya'll go to kplctv.com and go to their restaurant guide, you will be able to see all the eating places in the Lake Charles area. There are other ways to eat the Mudbugs(Fried, Pistolettes, Ettoufee and Jambalaya).

So, Little Iron is coming.....Maybe I'll shoot B Western :oB)

 

 

 

 

If I still had a BW legal gunbelt :rolleyes:

 

Come on down Jack! You got a week, you can make a FLASHY B Western rig in that time! I know it would be good! It will be my first time shooting at the Lake Charles club but I know Possum and the rest of the gang will do it right!~

Last year we found Isle of Capri has Snow crab legs on their buffet on fridays and saturdays for $20. Wouldn't you know it we checked and they still have them. With $20 snow crab I can almost break even after losing in the casino. We are counting the days for my favorite shoot Bayou Blast. You can't beat shootin, gamblin, and cajun food.

Still at a 34 pant with about 36 belt! Hopefully stay there for years to come.

 

I know you don't really know me but I wanted to tell you how proud I am of you for not only taking off the extra weight but keeping it off.

I know it is an ongoing struggle.

 

In 2002 I weighed 192 pounds. I'm only 5'4"

I went on a weight loss program.... no sugar, no white flour, only 1200 calories a day.

I lost 58 pounds in 6 months.

Now I stay right around 135-140 pounds.

But like I said, it's an ongoing struggle......

but oh so worth the effort!

 

I have compassion for anyone who struggles with their weight.

I would be happy to tell anyone about the program that helped me if they are interested.

 

See you at Bayou Blast

We hit that crab leg deal at the Capir also.

Was planing to do it again this year. And gamble just a little.

 

But dang it. We are not going to be able to make it. :angry:

 

Really wanted to. This was on our list of shoots to make.

But got a little Doctor thing to take care of that Friday mourning.

So can not make it. Our loss for sure. :(:(
