Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, December 24, 2018

This is a memorable holiday season. I'm likely leaving on a company transfer soon, my youngest son just finished his bachelor of science degree and we all got together today for gumbo. It starts off like this, two dozen crabs, six pounds of shrimp, half a gallon of fresh oysters, three pounds of crab meat and lots of seasoning. It's the biggest gumbo I've ever cooked before and I used mom's 5 gallon stainless Tramontia pot. Celery, bell pepper, onions, garlic, green onions, majoram, thyme, red pepper, black pepper, sea salt, file, and lots of love. Junior cooked the roux. I passed him to manhood on his performance. I hope everyone is having as much fun with their family as I am. Take care Retorters, More to come ...

Merry Christmas to all, and that sounds like a delicious Cajun style feast.

I wish I could. We fed about 20 and everyone took a doggie bowl.

Happy Holidays everyone! I lurk more than I post, but I love watching everyone's posts day after day. The brilliant and the intellectually sub-obtimal, both.

You'd better not pout. You'd better not cry. You'd better not shout, I'm telling you why.










I've got a pick-axe and a very low tolerance for people's emotional outbursts!

I don't actually celebrate Christ's Mass, as he was born in late Sept/early October about what we would call 4 BCE during what the Jews call the Feast of Trumpets... the same Feast several authors of several texts written over a couple of thousand of years, in different places for different audiences, before him said he would be born, he would die, be resurrected in great detail... and the same Feast they said he would return.

But then, I predicted Rev Darko would never live this long, or be this funny, so what do I know.

Sloppy Solstice, Rev!

"I predicted Rev Darko would never live this long, or be this funny, so what do I know."

Well, I'm full of chemical preservatives, so I may not have lived this long. I call it the Keith Richards effect.

As for the funny, well, looks aren't everything.

Jesus, doesn't Rcade provide Corky enough attention already!

Anything I post before Corky, Rcade will post on Corky's behalf.

I just watched "It's a Wonderful Life" again after many years of purposefully not doing so.

And I have to admit, Mackris' performance as Mr. Potter was brilliant.... albeit he was playing himself.

Happy holidays, especially to Corky. Though we may not agree on much he has always been a gentleman about it. Okay, I've had some holiday wine.....But I meant every word of my post! You guys/gals put the fun in dysfunctional.

Happy holidays everyone!

#21, yeah, happy holidays. I'm not a Christian, but nod to that as well as those celebrating Chanukah, Festivus, Kwanzaa, New year's, and whatever. I'm still celebrating by seeing my family which is the most important thing to me.
