My one long drive this past year was to check out Shawnee National Forest and 17th Street’s “Magic Dust” (and the homemade pork rinds) were the highlight. It was Providence that motivated me to order an extra shaker to take home before trying it.
Went canoeing and camping there with friends, it was a blast. Fished at Crab Orchard Lake and those babies wound up on the grill. Looking forward to some spring fishing and outdoor activities when I finish my vaccine.
For you gardeners here, if you haven’t got you seed orders in better do it today. We had to order some items we forgot to when we did our large seed and plant orders in January, and tons of seeds and plants are now either backordered or totally sold out.
One of our garden shops told me they sold out fast last year and due to early orders and people who discovered gardening last year during lockdowns now ordering, they don’t anticipate having much stock left by Mother’s Day.
My grandfather used to love that lake. I took my son in 2019 (last time I flew in for a visit). I have caught nice Cats and had good Crappie fishing since I was a kid. Some people like it for Bass but it’s always been catfish since I’ve been going there.
