Overheard on Hamlin Lake

It's a gray day in the Hamlin Lake neighborhoods

Hamlin Lake

Coralee is really out of sorts because Hank doesn't want to take her out for Thanksgiving. He'd rather have homemade corn bread.

"Coralee, really, wait for me. I didn't mean it the way you think I did. I just was trying to tell you how much I love your cornbread, but if you want to swim over to the Middle Bayou for escargot, I have no problem with that."

"Hank you handsome devil, you! Let's start now. It's a long paddle."

Meanwhile, under the bridge at Drake and Hettie's digs... "Honestly, Hank and Coralee have gotten quite uppity lately. The snails here are just as lovely."

"Yes, dear."

I could go for some escargot. It has been a long time since I've had any. Too long.

Chuck- I never have (on purpose)

Ro- Thanks! So different from your ecosystem

John- thank you!- to you too

Ann- I was. I've been known to be quite the sneak.

I love escargots....I also ordered two on that night on cruises - with lots of sourdough bread to sop up all that garlic and butter...not good, I know, for my diet.

I kind of like cornbread, too, Georgia girl that I am.
