Be sure to wear some flour in your hair…




Welcome back to a regular little feature we like to call, “Stuff maybe we should have mentioned in the photo caption, but didn’t.”

Pay close attention. I know this guy here looks like somebody with pieces of bread taped onto his head.

Who’s your crawdaddy now?


You get a line and I’II get a pole,
And we’ll go down to the Crawdad hole,
Honey, sugar baby, mine,
