Somewhere off the coast of Charleston on a marshy island far, far away from Morgan County Georgia and the police.
We made it and this boat is flat loaded! Harpoon Pole? Check! Net? Check! Hands- free headlight that fits on your dang head? Check! Bang stick to kill that sucker dead? Double check! Great ole big sharp huntin’ knife? Check! White Lightnin’? Triple check! All we need is a huge slug of this here liquid courage!

Momma missed! But LOOK! Two baby gators! Catch ‘em with the net! GOTCHA! I reckon we’ll grow our own gator fashions in Morgan County!
Talk ‘bout Locally Grown! Perf!
We’ll just plop these two baby gators in Doc Bennett’s pond while he ain’t lookin’ and wait a few years or so til they get all big, fat ‘an sassy! The bomb is right!
Now, I don’t know ‘bout you, but huntin’ always makes me FAMISHED! It’s a good ding dang thing Kenny Pritchett’s new restaurant, The Chowder House located at 633 North Main in Madison, is fixin’ to open in mid-June!
You heard me right y’all! I popped over there to see Kenny and to get the scoop and here it is! Ok so it’s located next to the old Dairy Queen building and it’s gonna be very casual with a real simple but delish menu, affordable prices and a fantastic cold bar servin’ up beer and wine! Right so the big news is the menu! Everybody knows Kenny can sure steam some shrimp and honey he’s gonna be servin’ it up in style! I can’t wait! But, he’s also gonna serve up clams, calamari, salmon, a fish special, a great steak and a pasta special! Oh and did I tell y’all ‘bout the fabulishous fish sandwich?
Dang it’s gonna be good! You’ll be able to get your seafood grilled, fried with handbattered, homemade batter, or blackened. Oh and there’s going to be indoor and outdoor dinin’!
