So Anne has been with us for a few days now and this weekend hubster suggested a day out to the mermaids at Weeki Wachee.
I was shocked by the semi naked mermaids in the park and felt the need to stand until the park closed and cover the poor woman...
|It was my duty to protect the mermaids modesty|
Anne & Hubbie went and watched the mermaid show....I'll let you read about the mermaids over at Anne's blog, The Day After Yesterday, but we thought we'd make her buy us dinner for taking her.. we're nice hosts like that!
Anne had heard that she might be able to get some Armadillo if we went to the Texas Roadhouse so we rolled in looking for a table. She was a little miss-informed, she'd have to be at a roadhouse in Texas if she wanted to get her hands on some Armadillo tacos, so we had to settle for cheeseburgers and some $1.99 Margaritas.. (it was happy hour after all!)
|Just one for me...|
And it's a good job she didn't get her Armadillo......
Some of you may remember that this month I mourned the loss of Fred and Andy, the dead Armadillos. Very sadly these sweet little animals get attacked by dogs, coyotes and men with guns around here...
In Texas & Louisiana...... well they are dinner.
Search Google for Armadillo recipes and you will find Armadillo meatballs, Bar-B-Q and tasty Tacos!! (interested .. you wont be once you've read the rest of the blog)
Every year, about 150 Americans are diagnosed with leprosy, a disease that disfigures the skin and affects the nervous system. Two-thirds of these people pick it up while traveling overseas, but the source of the remaining third has long been a mystery.
Where did these patients, most of them from Texas and Louisiana, catch leprosy?
Well, you don't need a science degree to know what my next sentence is going to be..
It's from eating ARMADILLOS
15% of all armadillos are infected....
hmmm.. that's 15% chance that you are going to end up with something that looks like this after scoffing your tasty armadillo taco..
So if these are your uncles / fathers / brothers.. please warn them. Armadillo is not the new beef.. there's no inoculation for it..so don't do it!!!
|Someones relatives... please have a heart and warn them!|
I've warned Anne off the Armadillo for now, but goodness knows what will happen if she visits her blogging friends in Texas!
If you have a blog, please leave me the link when you comment, so I can stalk you!
