Brother Nathaniel: Wouldn't it be a stew? Jan 27, 2021 4:15:05 GMT
RufusScorpius: Gumbo without rice is nothing more than soup. Prove me wrong.. Jan 27, 2021 0:41:13 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: I like gumbo, I just don't care too much for rice in soup type dishes. I would like gumbo more without the usual rice. Jan 26, 2021 23:16:18 GMT
christain: Just cooked the best pot of Creole Gumbo EVER. Chicken, sausage, shrimp, plus all the veggies. Outside, over an open fire in a cast-iron pot...oh, hell yeah. 8-) Jan 26, 2021 22:26:21 GMT
RufusScorpius: The shoulder surgery is fairly straightforward, it's the recovery that is a real horror show. Not looking forward to it, truth be told Jan 22, 2021 18:14:51 GMT
christain: Sorry to hear you are still having medical troubles, Rufus. :-[ But,'ve got a strong wife and healthy girls. Let THEM do the paddling. (rofl) Jan 22, 2021 3:15:42 GMT *
cjman919: Sorry if im using this wrong but im just looking for a kusarigama somewhere idk why its so hard to find one thanks for the help Jan 22, 2021 1:51:08 GMT
RufusScorpius: Sounds like a great deal of fun, which I won't be enjoying any time soon. I'll have my shoulder in a sling for 6 weeks at least, then therapy for 4 or 5 months after. Maybe early fall I can get out camping or someting. Jan 21, 2021 17:04:32 GMT
christain: No need for a rope swing there. There's one spot where there's a deep pool of crystal-clear water with a cliff to jump off. Little fish nibble your toes while you swim. It's literally like another world. Wonderful. :) Jan 20, 2021 19:26:42 GMT
seth: Sounds great Christain. We used to do that when stationed in Florida. We'd canoe in the maze of the blackwater river--always find rope swings and such people had set up. Jan 20, 2021 15:43:42 GMT
Ouroboros: Porch damnit. Jan 20, 2021 14:22:59 GMT
Ouroboros: Watch the pprch today Jan 20, 2021 14:22:46 GMT
christain: I plan on me and the wife going boating on the river at Beavers Bend, Oklahoma. You can float your cooler behind you and pull up on a sand bar and camp out. Great fun. Jan 20, 2021 4:16:08 GMT
seth: yeah trying to plan summer camping trips now--I can't wait Jan 18, 2021 15:27:32 GMT
RufusScorpius: Mmm, campfire, fresh fish, some 'taters gathered from the woods... paradise.... Jan 18, 2021 14:08:25 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: Don't camp too close to the forbidden forest! A word of advice brother. Jan 18, 2021 10:12:35 GMT *
christain: If I were still in my teen years, I'd be camped by a fire on the edge of my pond with lines in the water...hoping to catch breakfast. If not, then go foraging the woods for nuts and berries. Not the easiest, but you'll live. :P Jan 18, 2021 6:42:02 GMT
christain: A campfire and a good bottle of Scotch sounds pretty on-time right now. But only if I have a waterproof tent. The weather here is as unpredictable as a new wife. ;-| Watch out for the forest Elves and Gnomes. ;) Jan 18, 2021 6:34:48 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: My old friend! Well... you will always be welcome for a spot at my campfire. I am preparing to brave the forest again for some more research. Jan 18, 2021 6:12:56 GMT
christain: Hey, Rufus! Sorry I haven't been on in a while to chat. Just too busy with the holidays and suffering a few medical setbacks. It really bites getting old, but I can still perform. My wife may have a different opinion, but I'm referring to swordplay. :D Jan 18, 2021 2:45:15 GMT *
