Richard, in your community there used to be a place over near the Ramada Inn that went by that name.

Great buffalo steak, alligator tail, cheap wine, and wonderful Southern Belles. laugh

About fifty miles southeast of you is a paper mill, I used to stay in Meridian and drive down there everyday. That's right, in Alabama. Used to eat at a fish camp on the Tom Bigbee (Sp?) waterway. Fried dill pickle slices. Piles of cole slaw. Whole fried catfish....you eat it all and they'll bring another.....FREE!

I took my crew there one evening....they almost ate them out of catfish. Boy, could those guys eat!

There was a fancy planter's mansion that served fancy dinners. The company VP liked the "Heifer" better than the fancy place.

It was a rough winter that year....I had to wear a sweat shirt and a jacket! It almost snowed one morning.

That was about 12 years ago....85 in December isn't all bad. It was in the 60's when I left to come home.....6 above when I got home a few hours later along with 10 inches of snow blowing around.

If anyone is traveling through that area it is worth a stop for the food.

Enjoy the good food and weather.

I'm hungry now...

The Hungry Heifer. I have only lived here for 5 years so I had to ask a few of the old timers about it. It is on 14th Ave in the hospital district, about 1/2 a mile from I-20. I ws told it was never near the Ramada Inn (or as I call in the Ramala Inn). And I have never eaten at the Heifer. I'll interogate a few more people about it.

As for the weather in this part of the county. It is very mild. I grew up in Dallas. It is usually 10 degrees cooler in the summer and 10 degrees warmer in the winter here. And the wind hardly blows at all. Whereas in North Texas the wind is always blowing 10 to 20 miles as hour. So 32 degrees is quite cold.

Okay, Richard, it was a "few days" ago, and, Jeff, that's IT :toothy: . I recognize the chairs ( and the floor eek ) The hotels were on the southeast part of town where the interstates came together. We took the main drag that ran back west north of the interstate. It was only 5 or 10 minutes from the hotel.

Now if I can only remember the name of the fish camp. They had a mounted boar's head (real tusker) just as you walked into the dining room....scare the heck out of you. Thought my mother-in-law had gotten there ahead of me ! frown

You drove right past the largest of the Peavey Electronics manufacturing plants, where they take it from raw materials (woood, steel, plastic) to a finished product (guitar amplifiers, PA speakers, ect)

I don't venture in Alabama so I wouldn't know about this particular fish camp. I never even heard of a fish camp till I moved here.
