A Blink and She's Gone

Tammi passed through today. Quick. Like… like… like… a really fast Tammi!

I took her to a couple of the stores in the area I thought she might be interested in seeing due to her profession, we quickly met up with VW and her boys who were sweet as sugar and entertained us with jokes as only little boys can do, grabbed a quick lunch where unfortunately there were all waitresses and no young nubile scantily clad men (dammit), took her to another store and then… Poof! She was gone!

I will say I was a little nervous. She had only two requests if you remember… blackened grouper for lunch served by nearly naked young nubile men. And as much as I really really REALLY wanted that last one to come true, it just was not going to happen. Every restaurant I thought of was served by women and if men were involved, they all wore too much clothing. Even tight white tshirts would have done it, but none of the restaurants I could think of had such attire with the young men eye candy.

And then I couldn’t find a restaurant that served grouper, let alone BLACKENED grouper. My Better Half said to me when I told him of the meal request, “Um. Yeah. Good Luck with that one…” At the last minute VW reminded me of a restaurant that had just opened and holy crap, they had grouper on the menu and you could even get grouper sticks… blackened!

I had nachos.

She had fish.

Which reminds me...I’m waiting for when I get home to Pensacola for Christmas where I can satisfy my hunger for deep fried oysters. The panhandle is where it’s at, baby. Oh yeahhhhh. My gall bladder issues gone, it be deep fried oysters at Christmas break!

Anyway, so she zipped in and zipped out and the infamous Road Warrior was on the road heading back. We had 2.5 hours together.

I’m hoping for a couple days next time… it was so good to see her.

And those rumors of her shrinking (link not found as she is having blog problems) are highly exaggerated. I’m not sure what yardstick they use at her doctor’s office to determine height, but someone lied to them. She’s still over 6 feet and I’m still under 5’3”.

And it wasn’t her fancy pants or her glasses.

It is what it is...

Cock O' the Walk, my man! I be there.

I'll tell you, I loved 'em raw on the halfshell, suck 'em right off with a little cocktail sauce. But then... remember that whole bacteria problem they had all through the beds? TN's roomy in college had a bunch of friends who were micro biology majors or something and they refused to eat them raw after what they were seeing. Permanently marked me. Skeeved me for life. I gotta have 'em cooked now.

Deep fried.

With hush puppies.

I've been craving this since frickin' JULY and the only reason I didn't do it then as we all know, you don't eat 'em in a month without an 'R'. So December it is... Good God. I cannot wait. Maybe I'll have 'em every damn day!

9 hours on the road. Road Warrior is right.....

But I enjoyed the brief time we did have, and cannot thank you enough for your help. You watch - I'm gonna open that one account, they'll do a million or two a year and I'll be back down here at least 4 times a year to keep things going. THAT'S how we get those two days....

Seriously - thank you. And as soon as my blog loses weight (since the bandwidth is exceeded) I've got my version of the day....

Yaa... I got to write it up so I can put out the stupid jokes my boys told Tammi. It was great getting to meet her. She is very full of life and fun.

I hear tell that the Road Warrior may make an appearance in New Jersey in the not too distant future.

Oysters -- Gag City.
