I can't remember that. I do remember her always yelling at us grand kids to stay the hell out of the Gravy Train.



She had to tell y'all that?

Thank you for this. It brings up, or into, the definition of consciousness.

Are you going to eat that? As an affirmation.

Are you going to eat that? As a condemnation.

What is it that makes you, you?

I still won't eat dog, like the previous Preezy.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

My bro says dog is ok as long as it is well done. Says it is better than rat on a stick.

I've had a lot of coyote. It's good eating.

Obastard said in his crappy book that dog is more tender than snake.   :shrug:

I ate dog, and it was tough.  I also ate snake and it was tougher.

Did you need to use a pressure cooker for that?

Nope. Soak it in beer for a few hours, shove it on a stick and leave it over a fire for a while...
Like all wild game, you can't over cook it., Just enough or it will get tough. shoot, even venison is that way.  :shrug:

Beats me. They was in my traps, so I ate em.
No more. Not kosher. Dunno if I could survive being a kosher trapper.

I've ate just about everything in these woods, just that way. There ain't hardly a thing you could mention that lives up here that I ain't ate at least a time or two.

I probably have unknowingly eaten dog incorporated in a meal aboard a workboat in the Persian Gulf years ago run by Philipinos and it didn't kill me.

Wouldn't choose it if it were a menu item.

I've had pronghorn antelope where there was nothing you could do to it to make it edible. The best antelope are the ones feeding around fields in the early midmorn. Catch them completely unaware, shoot them in the head, get the hide off ASAP, then cooled down, ASAP. A startled antelope is instantly infused with adrenaline. If you let it get to running then let it run and try again another day.

A pocketful was a nice snack when one was out adventuring around their ranch. A lot less greasy than a pocketful of tater tots, too.
Can't say I ever tried the gravy train, didn't know anyone that bought it, but those little dog milk bone biscuits were pretty good, cleaned your teeth too.

Now, we ain't got much for snails. Do beetle larvae count? We've got some big as your thumb that you can find in rotted stumps... You can usually find a mess of em... enough to cover the bottom of a bush pot... Fry em up in there with some butter... Mighty fine.
