Hey, hey, bring both and I'll take you and Steve to the finest Cajun
kitchen in this part of Loosyanna for their best meal - Road Kill Gumbo.

I sometimes think about renting a flat bed truck and going some place where
they have "free" rocks and getting a load. The blasted stuff sells at a
dear price around here. Watched a guy buy two pallet loads of what looked
like sandstone flat slabs the other day. Paid cash, had to be a drug lord
to afford that much rock here on the Gulf Coast.
