We still have winter here, it has been below zero again. –13 F one morning that is –25 C eh.
Somewhere about 10 1/ 2 to 11 inches of snow remains at the snow stick.
Harriet asked about Bullhead that I mentioned yesterday. We have a fish here in Minnesota called a Bullhead. Technically it is a Catfish…but we call them Bullheads. Here is a link to some photos at the MN DNR site. Bullheads have spines near their fins. Along the shore of Shell Lake when my baby brother stepped on a dead bullhead one of those spines penetrated his foot, and he got an infection which lead to blood poisoning, which lead to me waiting on him hand and foot. He was only allowed up to go to the bathroom. His foot was elevated in a plastic bag to draw out the poison. Bullheads are not normally a fish that you “fish” for, but some people eat them. I like Catfish…I consider it a good tasting fish…but I usually buy farm raised Catfish at the grocery store.
If I could I would march right into a Captain D’s Restaurant and order up some catfish and some hush puppies. Then I would head to Richard’s Patio south of Lafayette Louisiana and order up some Crawfish, then to D and B Gumbo in Gulfport Mississippi for some Gumbo, then to the NCO Club at Tyndall AFB in Florida to order some lobster.
