Southern Food

Submitted by eagle on Tue, 07/14/2015 - 19:11

A favorite southern food that I'm eating at lots of gas stations is boiled peanuts, cajun style! Yummy!!! :)
Now in a KFC in Clanton, Alabama. The place has a bible out. Here is the bible on wisdom:

The Beneficence of Wisdom
1 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father,

and attend to know understanding.
2 For I give you good doctrine,

forsake ye not my law.
3 For I was my father's son,

tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.
4 He taught me also, and said unto me,

Let thine heart retain my words:
keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom, get understanding:

forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
6 Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee:

love her, and she shall keep thee.
7 Wisdom is the principal thing;

therefore get wisdom:
and with all thy getting get understanding.
8 Exalt her, and she shall promote thee:

she shall bring thee to honor, when thou dost embrace her.
9 She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace:

a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.
10 Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings;

and the years of thy life shall be many.
11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom;

I have led thee in right paths.
12 When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened;

and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.
13 Take fast hold of instruction;

let her not go:
keep her; for she is thy life.
14 Enter not into the path of the wicked,

and go not in the way of evil men.
15 Avoid it, pass not by it,

turn from it, and pass away.
16 For they sleep not, except they have done mischief;

and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.
17 For they eat the bread of wickedness,

and drink the wine of violence.
18 But the path of the just is as the shining light,

that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
19 The way of the wicked is as darkness:

they know not at what they stumble.
20 My son, attend to my words;

incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes;

keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them,

and health to all their flesh.
23 Keep thy heart with all diligence;

for out of it are the issues of life.
24 Put away from thee a froward mouth,

and perverse lips put far from thee.
25 Let thine eyes look right on,

and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
26 Ponder the path of thy feet, Heb. 12.13

and let all thy ways be established.
27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left:

remove thy foot from evil.

Backwoods Alabama

Riding on little country roads, taking lots of wrong turns.
My phone battery dies. I wind up on a beautiful dirt road. Go by a sign that says: "Trespassers will be shot. Survivors will be prosecuted."
Carry on. Another sign says: "End county maintenance."
Carry on. Getting back on a highway, I stop in a little shop, and ask for directions. The shopkeeper tells me how to get to the big Interstate.
Although I don't want to ride on the Interstate and it's probably illegal, I head over anyway. Before getting there, I come across a car mechanic garage at an intersection.
Stop in to ask for alternative ways. One of the guys working there has a bright orange Poison shirt, and long hair. Basically who I want to be when I grow up. I get some directions, including a "shortcut"!
Carry on. Make it to a smaller highway, where I continue to ride. Along the way, seeing LOTS of awesome vehicles, such as Chevrolet Corvettes.
Carry on.
Rock & Roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
