Today we passed through Perry to stop by my Grandma and Grandpas gravesite to say hello. We found them resting in peace in their lovely country (and very quiet and serene) cemetery. I am always happy they are in such a perfect place...a place they picked out, where they really loved.
Afer this we left to go to the restuarant we always visit when there, called Pounceys...they have the best fried catfish and swamp cabbage....BUT...we found it closed down! One of the local people told us they had been in business 38 years, and the lady that owned it sold it and closed up shop just 2 weeks ago!! I got a few tears in my eyes...it was a special place for our whole family. I had to send an e-mail out to everyone to let them know.
We found out that there is still a place in Perry where they sell seafood and swamp cabbage! I took some pics of the new place...Deal's, which is family owned and operated. I did not get any swamp cabbage...mainly out of guilt. After you remove the heart of the cabbage palm, it dies. I didn't have the heart. It tastes good, but just not that good to me anymore.
So, ever onward...
