LOL! Or some Jambalaya, or Shrimp Etouffee, blackened redfish, or a big bowl of Gumbo! Yum! I love all that Louisana stuff! I think that is why I loved New Orleans when we went down there. All that Creole food is good stuff!

When I worked at the UT Vet School and ran the Lab Animal Facilities Dr. J.B. Jones, who was the department head at the time, really liked me because the animal facilities always came in in the black at the end of the year. I charged the users per diems for their animals and I was careful not to waste money and put all the food and everything out on bid and not blow it on crap like kitty treats and at the end of the year I'd have a big surplus and Dr. Jones would use that money to balance out other people in his department who spent over budget.

The whole time I was running the animal facilities I never overspent. Not once.
