1. The Dallas Paper has a group of guys known as the BBQ Posse. Once in a while they drive around eating at BBQ joints perhaps hitting 4 ro 5 in a single day. I am sure their reviews are honest and exacting, as in, who would eat BBQ and then lie about it. Sunday's paper had the latest article from them. They hit 4 places on their latest trip:
BBQ on the Brazos in Cresson www.bbqonthebrazos.com
Lazy S&M BBQ in Joshua - facebook site (I do wonder about the S&M bit)
Jambo's BBQ Shack in Rendon www.jambosbbqshack.com
Pit Stop BBQ in Waxahachie www.pitstopbbq.net
The newspaper photo (Sunday page 6K) shows a sandwich called the Mount Jambo. Two pieces of Texas Toast enclosing meat piled high - brisket (both sliced and chopped), pulled pork, smoked sausage, smoked bologna, and pork ribs. It cost $14.95. I want to thank writer Gary Jacobson of the News and his photographer Tom Fox for setting me up to spend WAY-TOO MUCH MONEY for a barbeque sandwich at Jambo's sometime in the near future. Fox knows how to photograph a tempting meal.
I might add they gave a plug for Hutchins BBQ in McKinney who has an all-you-can-eat barbeque for $16.59 as the best BBQ value in the state.
2. A friend tells me that I can buy insurance for this Blog. I suppose it keeps me covered if I say something wrong. I do wonder if the above report on BBQ sets me up for being sued for plagiarism - or copyright infringement. That was not a question. It was a thought.
3. Both AOL news and the Dallas News had articles today about a young couple who recently died. Helen and Kenneth Felumlee married in the 40s and died 70 years later within 18 hours of each other. Helen died first at 92 yrs old. Kenneth, 91, died 18 hours later. The article implies he began to fade within moments of her death. There is more, but you can find the full story if you just look for it somewhere. Parts of the story are simply sweet.
4. I won't go into the details on this one either - I am sure it must be online somewhere. In Jerusalem the Christian Orthodox group gets together at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher - believed to be the tomb of Jesus - and the priest go in and come out with fire which is handed out to everyone. They call it Holy Fire because the flame appears spontaneously from His tomb. Tens of thousands of worshipers participate in this Holy Fire thing. You'd think at my age that I would have heard of this before now. Most Interesting celebration.
I might mention that the International polka festival is coming to Ennis sometime this next month. It is really a fun Polka Party. Y'all should go see and Hear.
Yours truly in Oom Pah Land.
A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. We moved to central Texas to be near a daughter. We are down to only one wirehair dachshund - Sadie.
