Re: Re: calamari/octopus


Hi Pam, Brings back memories of time spent in Vietnam, the gunners on our
helicopters were from Hawaii, many of them residents of that state.  They
would get "care packages" from home; that was my first experience with
smoked squid, in a can even.  Was a little salty, but compared with what
Uncle Sugar was feeding us, just plain desish!!!  Rich in Z-5 at 1 degree
with today's expected high to be 5.
