No question. But it would raise the cost of productionto something like $3500 per serving.

Hen's teeth will improve ANYTHING. I once made a family speciality, creamed tuna on mashed potatoes and that was when I learned to drain the oil off the tuna before using it for anything. But I sprinkled some hen's teeth on it and it tasted like a wonderful chateaubriand with bernaise sauce.

Would hen's teeth improve the turkey soup I'm planning to make for dinner this evening? Throw a few in with the egg noodles?

Exactly, LH! That's why the greatest food critics rate dishes by HTU (Hen's Teeth Units).

McDonald Burgers rate at something like 125.6 NEGATIVE HTU.

One hen's tooth more or less is the difference between a gastronomic masterpiece and an unremarkable meal.

Yes, and there's a lot of it too. Just look on the bottom shelf of the fridge, way in the back. It was pretty good, except for the hen's teeth in it which gave it a sort of gritty texture. And between you and me I think she put in too much strawberry jelly.

MOM has leftover turnip-bone marrow casserole? Do you know how expensive turnip bones are? they are as rare as hen's teeth! Someone better eat it before it gets wasted.

Ah, well, sorry Mom. I'm afraid that I imbibed a little of that "special" egg nog of yours. The stuff you keep in the 'fridge behind the leftover turnip-bone marrow casserole. Got a little giddy from it, I guess. It was a big day yesterday, what with three meetings and dropping off the form for the colonoscopy and getting a award and all. I really didn't mean drink some of your egg nog. I mean, there it was, sitting there at the very back of the shelf behind the casserole and the eggplant fritters and the marinated squid tentacles and those "potatoes" Amos dug up in the cemetery back in early March, and I just thought it was regular milk I could have with my cookies before I went to bed, you know? Anyway, I slept well.

Dear Mom,

I received an award today. So did the Library. Same one.

"In recognition of your devoted contribution and outstanding service to the making of the 2007 Field of Heroes...."

The FoH is a project of the various local veterans' service organizations. A white cross, with a name, rank and date of death, is placed in cemetery order for everyone killed in Afghanistan and Iraq. It makes quite a show, and brings the casualties home with a gut punch.

Pocatello is the only city in the US that does this on this scale.

So, the vets' groups wanted to film it -- the Library of Congress had asked them for a video of it.

I said that the Library would pay $500.00 for one of the videos. That was the opening bid and enough was raised to do the videotaping. Unfortunately, there isn't enough to do more than to make the rough cut DVD of 15 minutes. More money (about $5,000) is needed.

I think that they gave me the award because the Library has the center for finding grants and they want me to find the five grand.

Kinda neat though, getting an award.

Just thought I'd let you know, Mom.

The next award will be a Grammy.

Your wonder boy,
R

I think it's quite an accomplisment to post Latin in pig latin, especially since it never before occurred to me to do so.

This opens up whole new worlds of obnoxiousness...Icelandic in pig latin, for instance:

Mosaay er éttlįturray brżšisamurafay.

Or maybe Finnish:

Mosaay on ohtuullinenkay rkaay.

Or Klingon. Or Dutch. Or Polynesian. Or Obscene. Or Profane. Or....

Sorry, Mom. I got carried away with the moment.

By the way, Salmon River Sally found Pibsco last night. At Dirty Dani's Devilish Den. You can now use his hide as a sieve, if for some reason you wanted to do so.

Reminds me.

Salmon River Sally was in town last night. Naturally, she dropped up to the Legion Hovel, her bein' a Legionette and all.

Being a Legionette is no different at all from being a Legionaire. It just depends upon which box you check on the application and/or annual renewal form. Some folks check 'em both and pay double dues. Some folks don't check either one and pay triple dues. The first is the penalty for being a wise ass and the other is the penalty for being able to make a decision. Of course, dues are twenty-five cents per year (or one hundred hours of community service if you don't have any money).

Anyway, Sally was looking for Pibsco. Seems like he took off from home about a week back and hasn't been seen since. Or heard. Or, as is usual, smelled. And Sal was packing a sawed-off ten gauge. They'd apparently had some marital difficulty or other.

Pibsco hadn't been around the Hovel; probably figured that was the second place Sally would look with the first being the outhouse. Ol' Pibsco spends lots of time in there, mostly because it masks his own odor. In fact, an old outhouse smells downright refreshing after Pibsco.
