    Ha. That is funny. About the cockroaches, that is. But yeah---my references to drive-in-eat, in I-wah mean that you drive a considerable distance to a restaurant with inside seating, usually located in a renovated small-town I-wah storefront, to eat a large chunk o' meat, and other fried food. Sure--there may be a side o' salad or slaw just for show, but it's all about the grease. Yup. To illustrate my point, here's some typical small-town I-wah people.Attachment 46652022-08-04 (4).jpg

In fact, eat there EVERY DAY, so ya get enough protein and don't get skinny & weak and blow away. It's called The Bum Steer, or something. Yup. Awesome and amayzeen.Attachment 4663Edited to add: Photo of fire truck at the Bum Steer. The steaks were a bit overdone, that evening. Yup.Attachment 4664
    I have eaten there.
    What a coincidence! Not.

    Okay---I told you it was a popular destination to drive-n-eat! The place is situated near an interstate highway, with massive 18-wheelers roaring by! Yup. So, how far was the round trip, and what was the bill, for the yummy meal? Just for my information. Yup.

    I have no idea what that trip cost since it was years ago. But I will tell you that our locker beef escapade of last week came down to $4 a pound which is pretty spectacular. I did not realize that these beef purchases were cheaper than the crap you get in the stores. I know they’re certainly a better quality product, but since my father-in-law used to donate beef and pork and we only paid locker fees, I didn’t really know how much it would shake out to be if we had to pay for the actual beef cow.

    Okay---I just noticed this thread hadn't achieved any participation, lately. Ha. But yeah---Springfield, Missouri is still here, with the ever-increasing number of violent crimes. But, you know what? I've been following the local Mugshots feed on Facebook and also following a "Scanner Chatter" Facebook feed, and well, yeah---the citizens on the northern 1/2 of the city are committing THE largest amount of crime, resulting in arrests. But see--center of town, you have a student population of 20,000, and they go demmmacrat in every election. BUT: I don't see but very little(reported) crime committed by students! They're in that crime-prone age range. So, are SMS students angels, or are news reports and arrests kept to a minimum? See--that notion was put in my head while following Scanner Chatter. But yeah---Are the 900lb Gorillas in the room(MSU, Drury,etal, and its' minions are given the soft, low-profile coverage in the local media? Just curious. See--Schools are tax-and-tuition supported businesses, and they don't want their image or goodwill to be harmed. See? Stop me if you've already heard the theory. Hope that helps you some.
