That's not an image ruin'r. The most fun I ever had was with a tomboy girl. She could pee higher on the barn than I could. LOL

For many years a trip to the county fair included a walk around the 4-H/FFA exhibits of soybeans, corn and that ole baccer. We even had a smsll tobacco base for several years. This year when I walked around a local county fair farm exhibits, it was all corn! Seemed so strange not to see tobacco! It just isn't raised in these here parts!
Many years ago my father in law was part of a group that traveled to Canada to teach them about raising tobacco. Canadian tobacco?

@Anne....It's been awful humid here lately with just enough rain and sunshine to keep it that way with mid-90 degree temp. So for your trip I hope your A/C is in good order on your car. How far down are you go'n, deep in the delta or on to coon-arse (Cajun) country? Love that music but not Zydico!

Tobacco is still grown around here but just not as much as in prior times. In the flatter areas, I am seeing large acreage of corn nearly as far as one can see. The hill country (where small tobacco bases could be grown in the bottom land) has just returned to woods and forests or pasture land.

Many of the old tobacco barns are in bad shape and falling down and the lumber being reused such as I have done with my homestead addition interior walls. Some of that lumber is so old and seasoned that it cannot be nailed without pre-drilling.

Just last night on the way out to dinner with my friend, I saw several acres of what looked like Morning Glory blooms. I did not understand that unless it was some kind of winter cover crop or something for cattle feed.

Gulfport, five minutes from the beach. Oh the heat and humidity. A/C don't fail me now!
We once lived in Louisiana Cajun country. Very interesting language, culture, and music. Regional music, even zydico, I love in small doses.
Mississippi Man, hope you stay cool today!

Good Morning, bird threaders! It's chilly this am and the kids were wishing for jackets as they left for school!

It's not easy using old lumber. That pre-drilling gets old and there's always a possibility of hitting a hidden nail. In the end though it gives a person a real sense of accomplishment ( and a personal acquaintance with each and every nail)
. Morning glory fields? Would love to see them in full bloom! Hope you enjoyed your meal last night!

I lived in deep Cajun country too. I miss the culture and the people. The first day of cool fall weather is still gumbo day in my house!

I was in Gulfport right after Katrina, nothing left along the beach except debris including a McDonald's twisted golden arch but no McD's and no Big Macs.

While traveling near Lake Charles, I heard on the radio that the PTA was hosting a possum dinner, all you could eat for $2. I thought it was a joke until I passed the school. I saved my $2. LOL

I have a friend from Thailand that makes jokes about baked possum and hillbillies every time I talk to him. I had him and his lovely south korean wife over for dinner one evening. My date had made them some fried rabbit from a few that I had been blessed to get the day before. They smacked their lips and devoured every bite of that rabbit. When he finnaly asked what it was I said...why that was baked possum Tao... You should have seen his face.
I shouldn't have fessed up that it was really rabbit, but I did.

But there are just as many yuck items there--- hog head cheese, tripe, stomach. When they say a Cajun eats everything but the oink -- they are not lying

My goodness! You all have been places! Funny foods. All I know is farm foods, canning, and fast food. I did eat 1 tiny fish egg, and I've had escargo. I put the squid in a styrofoam cup to take to mom to try first. Lucky her, it never made it to her though, the ice melted and it started stinking, so I put it in the gas station trash barrell.
I'm just taking a break from work, work, work and putting my 2 cents in..
