Thanks, Michael. Happy to know that. I will talk to my doc about it. Any unusual side effects?

    None of which I'm aware. One pill each morning and I don't even think about it.

          Did you say unusual side effects?  I could name a few but I won't go there.

              I can't wait to have my doc get me started on Allopurinol. All I keep thinking about now is all the great foods I love that I've been avoiding. Yeehaaa!

                    I'll have to do some research but I'm sure we can sneak away from that Greek meat sauce over well-done spaghetti stuff and find ourselves an oyster bar!

                      The Anchor is well regarded for oysters.

                        I just checked out their website.  WOW!  That place looks fantastic.  Thanks for the tip!

                          I looked at it, too...I agree. I got a good chuckle out of your "Greek meat sauce" comment.

                            Did you see the picture of the Bloody Mary with the lobster claw garnish?  Yikes!  That looks good too.

                              Yes, I will order that as well. That's probably a $27 Bloody Mary! Just hold the horseradish glop for my oysters regardless of its health benefits. I really like that classic Migonette a lot better.

                                Yes, but if you eat the "horseradish glop" on the side, you can drink more Bloody Mary's!

                                      I'm with you!  But you have to go to Graeter's!!!!!  We can leave the oysters for a short time to make an ice cream stop.

                                              OK, Ed, I'll set a 3 dz. limit too.  Nah, maybe I'll have 4 dz.  I go past Graeter's every day......was tempted to stop in today and get a pint of Hazelnut Truffle Gelato but I was a good girl and kept going.  It's WONDERFUL!!!

                                                Saturday evening, I was in Dothan, Alabama, and made my way to Hunt's Oyster Bar.  I didn't ask, but I believe the oysters came from Apalachiacola.  By Al. standards, they were pricy, at $10 per dozen.  The quality was exceptional, however, better than I've had at Wintzell's in recent years.  Don't bother with the baked ones, they were less than acceptable.

                                                  PP,
                                                  When I was in AL after the oil spill, for the next few years there were no local oysters. Some of the places got oysters from Apalachiacola, FL to cover and they were expensive, compared to what the local oysters had been. I was told that Apalachiacola was the closest place they could get oysters from that had not been affected by the spill. I found them to be delicious and of excellent quality too. I think plenty of places must have kept buying them even after local oysters were available again because of the taste and quality.
