Cars of beauty:
Sherry and our 1953 Plymouth, some of you remember maternity clothes.
For day’s stuff:
In 1962 I came home to announce we were now in the USAF, and headed for Biloxi (I pronounced it BYLOCKSEE), Mississippi. Once we arrived and were settled we learned that we were living in Blucksee.
We became friends with a lot of folk there, at that time the biggest thing in Biloxi was Keesler, AFB. The main industry was fishing, mostly shrimp. I had no idea I would like to eat shrimp, in NC we used shrimp for bait many times.
I learned how oysters were harvested, and after a while I found out that shrimp, weren’t that bad to eat. And shrimp sold for 5 lbs for a dollar.
Biloxi also gave us our first son, Jack Jr. I think his price was about $20.
Sherry also learned to make ‘pea salad’ there and it went great with any seafood. This all came up because I deep fried fish and potatoes last night and Sherry fixed Pea Salad.
My mind went back to Biloxi and the many friends who have now passed on, and the rest too old to get-around.
Pea Salad has, green peas, boiled egg, small cheese cubes and mayo. We really enjoyed a good dinner.
Life is good, we plan to enjoy it ….. until…… then end. (Which I hope is a long ways off! LOL)Nite Shipslog
