Snake Gourd in Tomato and Green
Pepper sauce over rice. I would give it a B minus. And I can
tell you this unless a certain Possum acquires better manners it'll be
boiled Possum in Tomato and Green Pepper sauce over rice, because pretty
soon now I'm ready to drag the little bastard by the heels around the
Vegetable Garden as Achilles dragged Hector around the city of Troy.
And there will be a full moon
with the Perseid showers, so I will have my chance at hand to hand combat
with mother and babies. Who come now like thieves in the night while my
senses are dulled by the call of one lonely Frog. Then, I would like
to think, when I sit down to eat, I will scatter my food around as
this Possum does, chewing on this bone then that, in a most critical and
derogatory manner. Either way one of us will soon be gone for ever.
