I Like Grits!

Me too Willard.  But unlike you, I’ve actually eaten grits.

Seriously Mitt, if you want people to take you seriously, quit the phony pandering and just be yourself.

    I’ve eaten grits too! Just discovered their yummy flavor last year. Waffle House has good ones.

    I’m not sure Willard being himself will endear him to voters. He speaks “wealthy” and not too many regular voters understand that language. Ebonics is hard to understand, but “Wealthy” is probably harder and much less desirable. Sort of like how JFK made Sandbuggy want to puke.

    D – Read that Peyton was visiting Denver. NO WAY! He needs to be in AZ with Larry Fitzgerald. A winning combo.

      Bev,
      Elway can be very persuasive. I’m thinking they don’t think Tebow has the right throwing mechanics for the NFL.

    Cheese grits are some of my favorites in the world. Waffle House or Awful House as my son calls it, has grits I like. I use lots of butter and pepper in the bowl. Waffle House secret is when ordering grits say, “Grits in a bowl.” and you will get more grits.

    D- I’m hoping the Bidwell’s will throw caution to the wind and be extremely persuasive. We all know that Kevin Kolb doesn’t have much and neither do any of the other backup QBs. I want Peyton.

    Waffle House grits with butter mixed with scrambled eggs is awesome!

    So someone said there’s an election going on!

  7. Hey gang,
    Hope everyone is well, had a bunch of oral surgery done Friday, just getting back online and such.

    AP – Very glad you show up once in a while. Wish you visited more. Yes, we all know there’s an election in Nov, but personally, I really get sick of it somedays. There is more to life to talk about such as Brian’s oral surgery, grits, football quarterbacks etc. We all get back to politics eventually after taking a breath and just keeping in touch with one another. Have a good week.

      Bev,
      I’ve been to every southern state except Alabama. So I’m pretty familiar with grits. I’ve had:

      Shrimp and grits
      Cheese and grits
      Grits with red-eye gravy
      Grits and fried eggs
      Grits and ham

      They serve grits with just about everything. But one thing they don’t serve is biscuits and “cheesy” grits. They serve biscuits and gravy. Biscuits with about everything else. But never have I seen biscuits and grits.

      So I agree with you. Better to talk about Brian’s oral surgery, Payton Manning becoming the next QB for the Broncos, and most importantly the success this year of the Rockies in the NLW. 😉 They’re playing President Obama’s White Sox in Surprise today.

        As much as I’d like to discuss Brian’s oral surgery, today is the one year anniversary of the tsunami that devastated the northeast part of Japan’s Honshu island. And the fallout from the Fukushima nuclear reactor.

  9. Ditto to what Bev said, save the part about my oral surgery, my battle to keep from sleeping with my teeth on the bathroom counter makes for dull chatter. Also lets not forget at this point on road to 2012 are still on the side lines. We have no stake in the battle going on now, for us the true battle begins in June or such.

    D- maybe they have biscuits and “cheesy” grits in Alabama. You should plan a trip! Also stop by Phx and see Peyton playing with Fitzgerald. Ok, we don’t want to talk about Brian’s teeth. Sounds yucky. We can do politics next week or sometime soon.

      Bev,
      Made me think. I’ve visited every state except Alabama, North Dakota, Washington, Alaska and Hawaii. They are all on my bucket list, but Alabama is first on the list. I really, really want to visit Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals Alabama. Some of the greatest music of the ’60’s and ’70’s came from that building.

      Next I’d go to North Dakota. No particular reason other than I’ve been to South Dakota many times and those people are very friendly, so I’m guessing those in North Dakota would be the same. And I’d like to visit the TR National Park.

      I don’t want to go to Alaska or Hawaii because if I did, I’m afraid I’d want to move there. 😉

    Liar!

    D you can wait on North Dakota I been there no big whoops and I have been to Alaska. Nice place to visit wouldn’t wanna live there. Hawaii is way to expensive for this guy but I would like to visit. Looking at the map of the US I think Kentucky is my only contiguous lower 48 I have not been to.

      Ok Doots, I’ll cross North Dakota off the bucket list. But I really like South Dakota. Back in the ’80’s I did some work at the USGS EROS (Earth Resources Observation and Science) Center in Sioux Falls. Some of the smartest and friendliest people I’ve ever met. And then there’s Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills. And the Corn Palace in Mitchell is not to be missed. But my favorite is the Tea Steak House in Tea SD. The most unpretentious steak house I’ve ever been to and the best steak I’ve ever had.

    I did a week in that country several years ago. Went to Fargo, ND then went to Watertown, South Dakota on the very east side of the state. Very rural lots of flies as I recall. had to be in late Sept or Oct since the Rangers were in the playoffs for the first time. Got to watch the Yankees hand them their asses.

    D- I have a friend who was born and raised in Mitchell, SD. Hates to go home except to visit Mom.
