Friday Flash 55.....



.


.
Box Turtle, Chipmunk, Short-Legged Lizard
A nearly whole Turkey....
But a Vulture ate the Gizzard!
Porcupine, Woodchuck, a Gopher met his fate.
Deep-Fried or Boiled, squished Rabbit tastes mighty great!
My favorite dish is Possum
It fills my heart with glee...
Hell.... It was good enough for FDR
It's good enough for Me!!!

.

.

Unbelievable - Yahtzee

Let's have a great time while G is away.

Jannie Funster said...

Possum? Um, I think I just turned vegetarian.

I'll leave a comment BOTH places, because you both rock.

Safe travels.

One Stop - The Place For Poets, Writers & Artists said...

Tasty - so that's why you went.


A little class while you are gone here

Monkey Man said...

This is too confusing for my little mind. I will leave a comment here AND leave a comment THERE. Then go eat possum.

And if you want to, you will find my 55 is HERE .

Mojo said...

Ugh. I'm a Southern bo' and the only ting good about possum is... well gimme a minnit. I think of somethin' I'm sure.

Ti's on the way to Philly for a funeral just now and asked me if I'd post her 55 for her. Which of course I'm happy to do (even if I am a little late doing it).

Brian Miller said...

Thom said...

This rocks. Eat up my friend and enjoy. Sounds mighty tasty. Mine is up HERE. Go Warriors. Beat the Bulldogs!!! Go Blue. Beat the Hoosiers!!! Have a great weekend.

Serena said...

I think I just lost my appetite, so it's a good thing I already had a good dinner. LOL.:)

One Stop - The Place For Poets, Writers & Artists said...

TALON said...

Have a fabulous time, G-Man! I'll pass on the possum and that will leave more for you - lol!

I'll link up through One Shot.

Susan at Stony River said...

Well I hope you're coming back!
LOL

This was a post after any West Virginian's heart -- hmm, I'm hungry.
;-)

I'll be away this weekend too, but meanwhile posted a 55 here.

Happy weekend everyone!

clean and crazy said...

i am so grateful for my new diet, it doesn't include rodents or road kill!! but it does include a healthy dose of 55's!! mines up!!

Mama Zen said...

That's some fine eating right there!

Have a great weekend, G-Man!

I'll post in the morning.

gautami tripathy said...

I am going to be a vegetarian from now onwards!

BTW, I wrote a 55er after four years! I will post my link here as well as at One Stop Poetry! Can anyone write a haibun in 55 words? And does it work?

Here is my Haibun is 55 words!

gautami tripathy said...

Oops! in, not is!

Me said...

Hmmm...around here, it's usually raccoon and squirrel, which might not be *too* bad, I suppose. But we also see a fair number of skunks...and I think one would have to be pretty darn hungry before THAT started to look appetizing! :)

Happy trails, g-man. See you soon!

BTW - I was out in the wilds as of late myself, and it inspired my 55, which you can find HERE .

Prayer Girl said...

You warned us to have our appetite ready for your Friday 55, but you forgot to tell us to bring a barf bag too. (The idea of roadkill makes me sick.) Oh, my.... :)

I'll comment here and "there".

Have fun on your trip.

PG

Claudia said...

Janna said...

Note to self... never invite Galen to a potluck... :o
Just imagine the recipe books you could create from this.

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

PattiKen said...

Hey, guys, fancing meeting you here. But how am I going to give the G-Man grief about this whole poor possum thing?

I’m fluttering by here.

Millie said...

Love your 55 for today! Have a vacation!

Millie said...

I actually saw someone stop to load a deer into their pickup that was dead along the roadside.

Hope your having fun. My 55 is in honor of Munch's birthday and can be found

Greyscale Territory said...

Wish I hadn't read G-Man's 55 and then read all the comments before mine! I've just had pizza and my poor stomach is churning! And all I can think of is all the roadkill that seemed to happen at dusk in Tasmnaia! O help!

Anyways! Hope you have a great time out Mr G!

Here is mine!

Mine's up.

Dulce said...

Ahhh!!! And it rhymes so well!

Claudia said...

G man - sad you are not here to join - miss you and hope you have some fun..
you know what - the Mr. Linky at onestop made browsing the 55's much easier - would it be an idea to have a Mr. Linky as well in your next 55's...? just a suggestion...

HisFireFly said...

This is my first time joining in.. so I'll leave my link here as well as trying at One Stop.

Happy to be with y'all... find me here http://hisfirefly.blogspot.com/2010/10/moments-of-awe-in-55.html

KB said...

I love the first pic but I wish I hadn't read this just before I eat my morning tea. Have a great weekend G.

KB said...

P.S. I didn't write a 55 this week, was just stopping by to visit G :)

hope said...

Would you believe they use to have a "Possum Trot Festival" in one of our small S.C. towns? One guy said to me, "I was gonna try the possum burger when I came upon a starving dog, all skin and bones. I offered him a piece of the burger, he sniffed and RAN in the other direction. I fed it to the trashcan, uneaten."

Hope you're having fun!

rebecca said...

One more. A video on child prodigy Adora Svitak. A must-see.

Rose said...
