Where's Sal and Mookies' in your food display?  Best andouille and crawfish stromboli ever!

That place was packed.  We only let a few sit at this table.

I took that lure hook, line, and sinker!

I have been meaning to post this to our Mississippi convention attendees for some time now.

Who among you has big feets?

Size 12.

:)

 

I arrived in MS unprepared.  Our first field trip was to the Strong River where my sandals slid knee twisting dangerously on the slippery bedrock, and the deep loose gravel filled my sandals with EVERY painful step.  I finally relented and just sat chin deep in the shade and cool water, watching everyone properly feeted enjoy the day.  David Norris was so kind as to bring me various fishes to see and photograph, which should be in the next American Currents.  Some interesting creative photos helped my agonized situation.

 

So no seining for me that day.   :(

 

The next day Michael and i set off for clear water snorkeling and again every step, at every site, was filled with painful gravel.  I remembered i had some old shoes and with a roll of duck tape Michael did his best to wrap my ankles to keep the gravel out which offered a bit of early success, but as the day wore on, the tape was gone and i was pained.

 

The next day as we sought out new snorkel sites we stopped at a bridge for a look see.  when i got out and looked down there sat this pair of zipped, kick seine boots, heavily worn, size 12, and the toes near gone!  we looked down from the bridge and saw a lone pair of meandering footprints traced all over the muddy flat.  ( This was about an hour south of Jackson, on a trib feeding the muddy Pearl to the east ).

 

Evidently a NANFan either forgot or abandoned these zippered boots.  But God bless them and blessed me with these boots!

At the next spot I rinsed them off and slipped my littler feets inside, Michael duck taped the toe fronts and i walked where ever i wished that day in blissful COMFORT.

 

My thanks giving to the big footed one.
