Gumbo's awesome :D

Most driftwood takes weeks to sink. You can either weigh it down in your tank, or stick it in a bucket in your garage and forget about it for a while...

Gumbo is a sorta soup we start off with a roux, that is oil and flour mixed in equal parts and browned until it is the color of an old penny. Then you add onions, bell peppers and celery, and enough water to fill the pot. then in goes, sausage, chicken, tasso...whatever. You can also make seafood gumbo, and dare I say it... I shall cause I love it ...squirrel and sausage!!


As for the cypress knee, while I was at work hubby had the bright idea of drilling holes into it and filling said holes with mortar...still wont sink

Is there another kind? we have two kinds here the smaller grey ones we call cat squirrels and the bigger red tailed ones we call fox squirrels. The fox squirrels are meatier, but you really can't distinguish them in the trees.

Are you kidding we have squirrel season here, its just before deer season and a little after rabbit season. Depending on the year. There is also hog, coon, turkey and dove season too.
