Diana Foote searches for a new word in the dictionary to impress us
Today's offering from Miss Foote -
"With a flourish, our waitstaff discreetly informed us of the arrival of the Maine lobsters and I ordered my pound-and-a-half ($26.99) with alacrity. It arrived properly steamed and still steaming, the optimum moment to begin cracking the claws and walking legs, and sucking the tender, ambrosial meat."
Can y'all guess which restaurant she's talkin about? Jack Baker's Lobster Shanty! We'll give y'all a minute to stop laughing before we continue....
Where is the report of Mr. Colman Stewart's press conference?
Mr. Stewart informs us that -
"A total of 6 candidates, in 3 different races, were missing from the ballot in the recently certified primary election."
This is serious news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is Miss Vero the only person in this county concerned with this issue? Kids, we sent our posse in and here's what what we know -
There was a dismal turnout of our "elected" officials to hear Mr. Stewart speak. Joe Flescher (not running for office this year) was the only County Commissioner that stayed throughout the press conference, although he seemed to be "visitin" with folks more than payin attention.
Wesley Davis showed up late, talked on his cell phone outside and then stayed for about all of three minutes. Somebody ought a tell that bubba that large horizontal striped shirts are not a good fashion choice for him. Oh. Never mind we just did.
Miss Bea Gardner and Miss Cathy Hart listened attentively. A representative from Captain Bill McMullen's office was also payin attention, while Duurrrrll Loar was spotted outside parkin his Jeep, but no where near the press conference.
And the PJ? Y'all think that maybe they'd be on hand to cover a story about a candidate they endorse? Nope.
Will there be any follow up? Dunno.
Must self medicate heavily today, martinis intravenously we think.
