~~ Friday’s Hunt v.2.19 -- "S" is for ...
2. Week's Favorite: Cousins, Mary and Mrs. Jim
Picture was taken at Mary's church after the service. They were having a fund raiser for the "Clothes Closet" for the needy.
Our menu was Chili Dogs, a salad, and chips. Oh yes, a piece of cake and a cookie as a part of the Baby Shower in the room next. Mrs. Jim bought our and five for others not so lucky as we.
1. Starts with "S": Steamboat Bill's ~~ Last week I was late for sign-in as we were in Louisiana visiting our cousin, Mary. Mary is 93 years old but still gets around fine, and drives.
Mary had gotten us tickets for the Sandy Patty Concert being presented in her church.
Going over Friday afternoon, we decided to stop at Steamboat Bill's, a Cajun Seafood restaurant in Lake Charles, Louisiana, on I-10. (The little guy in the little tub was stationed at the men's restroom entrance.)
We shared a fish poboy and each had a pistolette (Google search link). Mine was crawfish and Mrs. Jim's was shrimp. These have been cooked in an étouffée (Google search link) mixture and poured into a special pastry made just for pistolettes.
3a. Amazing: I thought that the makeup resemblance of these two was amazing: (KP's and that of the cover picture Amazon young lady's).
KP likes to go to Children's Night at our local McDonalds. This is a weekly feature, one of the things she really likes is getting her face painted. Here she is an Indian Princess. We all like Thursday nights, Happy Meals for KP are $1.99 then.
3b. Amazing: I find it amazing that one of these creatures in my picture above would stay put for the most of the day: Guess which one?

Answer: Not the man walking. It is the white bird, an egret I think, at the edge of the pond. It will stay all day looking for a fish. Most of the time a fish won't show up but I often see it grabbing something passing by. The little lake/pond empties as it is a part of our drainage system for flood control.

The Fine Print:
- Teresa of Eden Hills, (click) is running this meme, Friday's Hunt. Her rules are: "Welcome to linkup for Friday’s Hunt. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Friday Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm. "
I always love all your food. I'd love to have both the hotdog and your lunch out. Sounds delicious.
Have a fabulous day Jim. ☺
Every once in a while, an egret will show up strutting around in my neighborhood here in South Houston. We have no body of water, no streams, nothing to attract one. We can't figure it out. But your little walking park/drainage are sure looks inviting.
