Weekend Update

News from the scavenging file: Hillbilly Husband and #1 son went
to Lowes for some plywood Saturday morning. On the way, they
saw some insulation in a giant dumpster by a local high school that
has been putting on a new roof. HH said, "We'll stop and get some
of that on the way home." He has been adding a room at the barn.
#1 son reported that when they came back, it was already gone.
The good junk doesn't last long in Redneckland.

News from the getting-out-of-cooking file: We went to The
Catfish Kettle for supper Saturday night. #2 son is finicky and
won't eat catfish, shrimp, chicken, slaw, beans, or hushpuppies
from this place. That left him with fries. I think he ate about two
potatoes worth. We were waiting for HH to finish eating when
a young waitress attempted to seat a family at the table behind
us. She carried a wooden high chair, and lifted it up and swung
it toward the end of their table, solidly thumping #1 son on the
right shoulder. He said, "Ow." He was trying to be quiet about
it, which is sooooo uncharacteristic of him. If that happened at
home, he would be writhing on the floor screaming that we had
dislocated his shoulder. Poor little guy. The waitress said, "Oh,
I'm sorry. I feel so bad." I figure she could have given him his
$3.95 meal for free, but no such offer. If I ran a business, that's
what I'd do. Put a money value on my kid's pain, gosh darn it!

    Hi Hillbilly Mom,
    Isn't America the land of legal action? Sue the place until they close it down!
    Actually maybe just next time skip out on the bill.

    Or maybe next time they'll crack his SKULL and he'll be worth more!

    I have skipped out on a bill before, back in my wicked past. But I didn't know I was doing it. One of my friends said to go pull the car around, and they would pay. Well...the three of them walked out behind an old man, like he was going to pay. AND they stole silverware, too. I just drove the getaway car.

    Cat, drop in any time. I see you have quite a few people on your blogroll that I have never visited, so now I can waste even more time instead of cleaning up the Hillbilly Mansion.
