For those of you who are prone to the prayer, while thinking of Seafarer John, you might want to throw in a few good words for all of our friends in Mobile....or we may be looking for a new destination come February. :(

You took the words right out of my mouth.  They had a tornado earlier today.  I  haven't heard any reports about damage yet.  If I hear anything, I'll post it.

    Here is a look at the tornado that went to the westside of downtown.  You have to love the bible belt commentary.

    All the reports I have read and an email from a friend down in Mobile, it was a massive twister but not a strong one.  It did some damage to one of the schools and several homes and a church.  So all in all.  They got a holiday miracle.

      We have been off line for a day or two. Sorry to read that our friend John (Seafarer) is not well...and hopefully he will recover shortly.
      Also the Tornado damage is evident, but so far it hasn't been reported as extensive. Again, our thoughts are with the folks in the Mobile area.
       
      We had a close brush with this storm. Our friends north and west of us got almost a foot of snow and roads were/are a mess. We got only an inch or so with sleet and ice causing more of the problems than snow. Temps above freezing are melting the problem as I type.

        We have about three inches here. Nothing to bother about.

          I booked our plane tickets earlier tonight! We'll get into Mobile kind of late on 2/15 (11:30 pm landing), we leave Sunday evening. We are really looking forward to seeing all of you!
           
          I'd like to say we've used up all of our bad luck with storms and flight delays by having a flight to Texas scheduled on 12/26. To make a long story very, very short, we arrived on 12/28 in Dallas, just in time for Ralph's family's belated Christmas dinner (not everyone could make the 25th). 
           
          However, I know better...we have an inexhaustible supply of bad luck with flight delays, and a lot of good luck with other things. So, we hope to see y'all that weekend, do not count on us for a sunrise Saturday breakfast.

              Lori, you and Ralph are definitely long overdue for some good luck traveling-wise.  Are you flying right into Mobile or are you flying into one of the other nearby airports (Pensacola, Gulfport, Montgomery, etc.)?

                Cliff, we're coming right in to Mobile. Less time traveling, more time visiting and eating :-)

                      MayorAl-
                      The flights into Mobile and the surrounding area from Baltimore have just been too high, so right now nothing is booked for Cousin Johnny.  I am still looking.  Mariton and I will be at both night's events for sure.

                        BB:  Roz was inquiring if Mariton would be there and I just confirmed it with her.  Made her morning.
                         
                        Al, Let's go sorta early to the Wintzell's in time for their happy hour.  We may make a stop at Dreamland on the way in.  We expect to be there by 2:00PM Friday.

                            Mariton also asked about Roz, so that works out real well.  We are very much looking forward to seeing you two in Mobile!

                              I will not be there for the Friday night event. I have a work issue that will keep me here until at least 7 pm. :(

                                        Can't Johnnie get a cheap flight to New Orleans or Jacksonville and drive over?  or some other 'within driving range airport.???
                                         
                                         We'll save the speeches and dancing for Saturday night at the Brick Pit.
                                        Friday I will ask Wintzells to have space for us at 5 PM. That gives us two hours of "Happy Hour Beer and Oysters" before the serious dinner gets going.  I am determined to get some of the West Indies Salad there this time.
                                         
                                        The floor is open for suggestions for breakfast and lunch on Saturday so the late arriving folks can catch up on their calorie intake before the group hits the Brick Pit that evening.  I too would like to insert a stop at Dreamland sometime during the day...but not sure when! What with BBQ on the menu for dinner.
                                         
                                        Lori and Ralph, Hope you get in in time to get some rest before Breakfast...where-ever it will be.
                                        TTM when do you get to Mobile? Need a pick-up???

                                          Holy smokes!  TWO HOURS of "Happy Hour Beer and Oysters"!!  That should be enough time for me to get my fix of those lovely morsels on the half shell!!!

                                              Lisa,
                                              Not wanting to 'brag' on the Happy Hour time a couple of years ago, But I couldn't stop...5 dozen raw on the half-shell during that time..with an equal number of beers. Since I am not much on the beer drinking I finished only two of those during the appetizer marathon... Then is was Shrimp and Scallops and Crab Claws for dinner....thats why there was no West Indies Salad that night (for me).  I think Padre Rick kept up with me that evening. During Happy hour the Oysters are half-price or about $5 per dozen.

                                                Ok, I get it.......this is going to be the Roadfood version of "Man/Woman vs. Oyster Challenge"!!  MH already has started to bet on me.  Minus the beers......too filling.....I'll substitute a white wine.  5 dozen, huh??  I dunno.  Maybe ann peeples and I could be a team??  May the victor end up with the 'bragging' rights!!

                                                  I want to see this. I know lleechef can put away at least two dozen, probably two and a half. Now if Ann can down the other two and a half you're going down to defeat, Mr. Mayor.
                                                   
                                                  Me, I'll be sticking to eating already dead oysters, preferably with spinach and stuff maybe fried.

                                                    BB you are right, there is nothing out of BAL or DC that is very cheap.
                                                    $333 was the cheapest I found, and $222 was the cheapest going from dc to TAL but then a 2 1/2 drive from TAL to Mobile.
                                                     
                                                    even flying into ORL wasnt cheap
                                                     
                                                    greyhound wasnt cheap either
                                                     
                                                    Wont he fit into one of your checked bags??

                                                      Lisa, This is not a RF vs Food thing.  I just could not stop slurping those Briney, tasty,  fresh from the gulf shellfish. Even my friend Sundancer had more than one dozen, and he is a modest eater for sure !
                                                      The point is it is a real budget supporting 'time-slot' for those who like to focus on the Oysters before dinner/

                                                            Al, as a "Modest eater" as you stated, it is a embarassment to myself to be around folks who can pack it away.  I sorta wish I could do that but I have limits.  Perhaps it is because of my age???  I do not now.  I do believe I ate a dozen raw and ordered a dozen fried at dinner which I could not finish.
                                                             
                                                            Roz does not eat oysters period so count her out.  I guess it will be Lisa and Ann vs. BB and the Mayor.
                                                             
                                                            I sure do enjoy the raw oysters though and at happy hour prices, that may be my entire dinner.
