Uncle Ron's Wood Chipper CHILI...


Yesterday Margie and I were talking to some new friends and they wanted to know why we called each other Norm and Margie...well we asked them if they had ever seen the film called "Fargo" which is a black comedy about two weird kidnapper's who are pursued by a pregnant sheriff who lives in Fargo, North Dakota...Her husband is an artist named Norm...and her name is Margie...At the end of the film is when one of the crooks tries to get rid of his dead buddy's remains in a wood chipper...(Yuk!!!)

Well it was one of the first movies we saw together back when we started dating and we had fun talking like those wonderful folk who live up there...with their "Yaaahs" and "You betchas"...and so we called each other by the film characters names..."Norm and Margie"...

Now for the chili recipe...

Every October I would enter the Group Therapy  chili cook off in Columbia and each time I was required to give my chili a name...So Margie  (Linda) suggested the one you see in the pix...Uncle Ron's Wood Chipper Chili...It sounds pretty gross and so we used it...Margie (Linda) found a rubber foot at a dollar store and we put a white sock on it and attached it to a large wooden ladle...and thus you can see the results...The chili was a hit and we had to replenish the pot with more beans and tomatoes we bought at a local drug store to keep the pot going...I forget how much we sold (1.00 a cup) but all of the money was given to charity...The recipe is in the second photo for anyone to try...

Bon appetite...

Boy Am I Gorgeous...

One of my favorite places to photograph is at our Riverbanks Zoo...Margie (Linda) said we should take advantage of the FREE admission on Fridays during January and February... so...Off we went and had a very enjoyable afternoon...I took my old Olympus SP-500 UZ digital camera with us...It's 10X zoom lens proved highly capable of capturing these wonderful animals...Enjoy...


































The End...(for now)
