Oooooooohhh I just have to tell you about the deliciousest food I ate recently. I don't remember the date (I think I'm getting old timer's disease) but I do remember it was the bestest shrimp I've had in a long time. The American Legion has a new broaster and they have the best bargain on chicken, fish, steak, and shrimp you can find anywhere in Waynedale. The cook showed me this huge T-Bone. I would have liked to have had my hands on that. Oh dear that didn't sound right. I mean I'd like...
