buffalo booty

Not that kind of booty, pirate kind of booty but this came from a pirate buffalo. I went to my PO box yesterday and inside my tiny little box was a yellow card and that only means one thing - warrants for my arrest that are too large to fit - no it means I have a package. Usually these packages are things I dont want like - more gevalia coffee I didnt want to begin with, bundles of magazine subscriptions I didnt ask for or some other nonsense that makes the 15 minute wait all the more bothersome. Not yesterday. Yesterday there was no line waiting for packages so I didnt care what it was. I get the patriotically printed box that says priority mail and I see right away its from Buffaloville, home of Buffalodick and this sucker has some weight to it. I get it home tear it open and inside is a steaming hot bowl of his award winning chili, two pounds of smoked brisket and 3 smoked game hens - my jaw dropped. "How did the chili stay warm" was my first thought followed quickly by "how do I hide this meat so the pup and banana wont know I scored some loot."



Just kidding~!

I did get a world famous t-shirt and a damn nice mushroom book. I have quite a few mushroom books but this one is so good because of how the pictures are layed out, there are multiple shots of each mushroom as well as cross sections to make identifying a lot easier, Plus I can hardly wait to start wiping my greasy hands all overt this shirt while I eat and cook with it everyday until it falls off. - I guess the chili and the smoked meats are coming in a different box.



It says "Buffalo Dick Makes Good Chili" Thanks a ton Buffalodick.

I would love it if you would send me a list of good 'Mushroom' readers!

I have always wanted to go along with someone who is a mycologist. A customer who grew shitake's would bring me a bag full now and then, I miss that!

You lucky Dog you! I want one of those shirts! I wonder if he'll sell them or hold a contest, something I could actually win at!

And from what I've heard and read, you are a damn good father and I'm glad you have your son.
