peas, porringe &

a bry martini byKathiLewis


I could say it was sorta like
"kissing the blarney stone" except
it was neither the lips nor a stone
It was a head, mine, and a bead
rack I was airborne for a split sec-
ond but I held on to those Mardi
Gras beads (until I landed anyway)
Gotta hand it to King George
Henshall, he made sure those bead
racks were on there to stay My
Mama always said I was her hard-
headed child You consider the 25
years of SOB training, plus 25 years
training with the Krewe of Wrecks
(nottomentiontheygaveme a Ti-
ara m 1999) and two more official
years training in the Krewe of
Nereids and hey, I think I'm ready
for the Olympicsl
Okay, it was my debut for
riding the Nereids Float and you
know Ijust love to make an impres-
sion
Ohmy sweet friend, Courtney
Winstead, defended me because
she mistakenly believed my fall
was caused by the stopping and
starting of the float (without blam-
ing our driver, Mike, who does an
excellent job for us) She sug-
gested in an e-m all discussion that
perhaps we needed some sort of
signal
Our King's wife, Peggy re-
sponded with "Kathl Lewis was
our signal"
"No," Courtney replied, "I
meant a sound signal "
Peggy's response was, "She
made a thud "
Oh come on, that's a true story
and if you're not laughing there is
something wrongly
A great big "Thank You" to
Running Around Wreck, Jeff
Goudey, and the Board members
of the Krewe of Wrecks for an un-
forgettable and spectacular Mardi
Gras You've continued to make
us all proud to have a place in the
biggest event on our tiny Island
each year We appreciate your hard
work and dedication to the continu-
ation of Mardi Gras on the Island,
and for makmg it bigger and better
each year And safer, don't forget
that I causedmy own damage and
I accept full responsibility (along


with the pretty colors)
If you can get the purple stuff
put away, the green and gold will
work for Going Irish on the Island
Leprechauns also love the shiny
stuff, thank goodness Ifjust one
would come by and grant me a
wish, I might be able to get my
house into some sort of order by
St Patrick's Day
There's a long list of fun
scheduled all day St Patrick's Day
andI canhardlywait Lordwilling
and the creek don't se, I'll be there
I just want to know if we still
have a St Paddy's Day Queen and
is it going to be Tommy Gnce? Is
he going for the Triple Crown,
Nauga, Wrecks and perhaps, Lep-
rechaun?
His sweet wife Wendy says
life hasn't changed at all in the Gnce
household "This," she says with
her beautiful smile, "is whatI live
with every day Welcome to my
world "
This week's recipe comes from
my friend and loyal reader Ted
Pence from Iowa Get your scis-
sors out 'cause this one's a keeper

DRINKING BETTER BEER
Baby boomers have been at the forefront
of some beer drinking trends, the first of
which was the light-beer movement
Now, as Boomers age, their beer-pur-
chasing behavior has continued to evolve
in an unexpected way Even thought they
may have more disposable income than
when they were younger, they are not
necessanly drinking more beer Instead
they are spending more money on less
beer It is the classic matter of quality
overquantity Boomers are "trading up"
to micro and regional specialty beers, or
craft brews All the growth in beer over
the past decades has gone into the pro-
duction of better beers This is a trend that
is likely to continue
HINT Overthe last quarterofthe twen-
tieth century, light beer became the domi-
nant segment in the domestic beer cat-
egory
WhetheryouarecelebratingSt Patrick's
Day with beer dyed green or prefer to try
a variety of brews, stop by Beach Wines
and Liquors, Inc at 5 Via de Luna for all
your party needs We have an exten-
sive selection ofwines and spirits, ready
to package up and send home Ques-
tions? Call 850-932-8850

4 LtZZARD'S TOWAQL/EA
by E.K Hewson


I remember almost 30 years
ago taking a photo for the beach
newspaper of a couple shoveling
sand out oftheir driveway after Hur-
rcane Frederick came ashore Itwas
a no wid, highhumidity, blistering
hot September day and the wife
quipped that at least when she shov-
eled snow it didn'tmigrate back into
her driveway with the next gust of
wind, and eventually snow would
melt Though I can vaguely recall
her face and I kind of remember
what cross street her house was on,
itwasherwordsthathave stuck with
me all these years Her words, how-
ever, were oflittle comfort tome last
week as I shoveled the 12" of snow
and 2" layer of ice off my front steps
and driveway
So itgotmethinkig Snow or
sand? Which would I rather shovel?
Let me begin with snow Oh,
snow melts alright It melts into
heavy slush which turns to bottom
busting ice traps if it's not removed
from the sidewalk quick enough
And it can only snow if the tem-
perature is 32 degrees or below
which translates into hat, gloves,
scarf, long underwear, winter
parka, ski pants and some kind of
insulated, waterproof shoe, which
brought me to the dilemma of the
day My Ugg boots were not wa-
terproof and my West Marine short
yachting boots were not insulated
Cold hands may indicate a warm
heart, but cold feet meant this girl
was ready to head south Then
there was the mass quantity of
sweat that comes with complete
physical exertion while being com-
pletely bundled up The kind of
perspiration that the minute you
stop moving chills you to the bone
and sends you scurrying for a nice
steaming hot shower to be fol-
lowed up with a bowl of chill, a
few cool beers and the warmth of
your living room with a roaring fire
inthe fireplace Of course in my
case, there was no hot water left
after my son took a long shower to
warm up after sledding and I was
too busy shoveling to cook chill or
get a fire going I did, however, in-
voke SOB (Sisters of the Blizzard)
Rule #10 that states any alcoholic


beverage left unattended in the
snow becomes the sole property of
she who finds it Therefore, I drank
the beers my husband threw on the
back porch before he had to leave
for a meeting I readily admit after
three hours of face numbing, toe
freezing, thigh burning squats, one
lukewarm shower, and a bowl of
canned ravioli I was starting to
believe that shoveling sand was
way easier
Then I had a very vivid flash-
back and it wasn't some stranger
whose picture I was taking for the
newspaper It was of me I was in
the downstairs of my mother's
beach house without water (other
than what was in the ice chest) and
electricity which meant no air con-
ditioning I was wearing a bathing
suit and running shoes and facing
the somewhat overwhelming task
of shoveling sand from the down-
stairs of her house to the outside
courtesy of Hurricane Dennis I
believe after about 30 minutes in
the heat, thoughts of a generator
and an industrial size shop vac
were dancing through my head
The digging shovel was getting re-
ally heavy and that was without
sand Plus the wooden handle had
startedto make blisters up and down
my sweating hands Even my high-
endrunnmg socks were drenched as
they were the final resting place for
all the perspiration that started atmy
head and made a steady stream
down my body A quick dip m ei-
ther the Gulf or her pool to cool off
were not even options because of
potentially hazardous debris I be-
lieve I even uttered the words, "I'd
rather be shoveling snow," but only
after I invoked SOB (Sisters of the
Beach) Rule #1 that states put
down the shovel and have a cock-
tail or two or three because you
aren't ever going to get all the sand
shoveled out
So there you have it Based on
a totally non-scientific study with
a focus group of one, shoveling
sand is way more difficult than
shoveling snow So with any luck
this year you won't have to shovel
sand andI won'thave to shovel any
more snow Until next time

reading' the water

by Saltwater Rick


The cool
weather has been bringing in some
great inshore fishing in the last
couple of weeks.
Mike Holcomb reports some
very nice flatfish catches as he
jigged in the Little Sabine Inlet
with a white grub with a redhead.
One Flounder he caught was in the
7 pound range.
Just fish the out-going high
tide and bounce that grub every
few seconds. The fish are there and
waiting.
Capt. Ronnie Hogue reports
Grouper, Grouper and more Grou-
per on his last trip out in the Gulf


at the end of February on the Hog
Wild charter boat. Ronnie is also,
a very proud Dad, as his son Jer-
emy took the win in the Redfish
tournament in their new inshore
charter boat. Call the Marina and
get hooked up with Capt. Ronnie
he will put you on them, deep or
shallow.
Pompano are starting to show
up as the winds change and the
sandfleas are there for the taking.
Sheepshead are all over the Old
Bridge and Mullet are being taken
with a good toss of the net.
So, do yourself a favor and go
fishing .
