. Every year, the day before Thanksgiving, I would do a shrimp boil for the in-laws in Indiana. This year there will be around 50 of them coming. I plan to make my last trip to “Wego” around noon today to get a last batch of 20 or 15 pounds of shrimp to take with us on ice. We leave for Indiana tomorrow with about 40 pounds of frozen shrimp. -- C.J.V

Say, ummmm, errr... well, uh... voelkels?

Would mind swinging by my place on your way to Indiana? :-)

I'm in Illinois -- it's only a hop, skip and a jump. Man, does that sound goooo---uuoood (two syllables - ala proper Nawleans pronunciation)!

Reminds me of the bad memories as a child; the unenlightend little urchin that I was, would never eat the cold-boiled shrimp that my grandparents had prior to EVERY family get together (which was practically once a month)... Ewwww! Shrimp!?! Then I got to college and realized what a friggin' doofus I had been all those years! [sigh]

Did my sob story make you feel any more compelled to come visit me, even out of sympathy? :-)
