Re: Raccoon


I've had two really terrible meals - one Indian, one Greek, but for the most
part, food experiences have been good... However, I do recall a trip to
Canada that had a few dismal eating experiences.  I took a friend with me to
visit my sister; this woman can be a royal pain, but  fun too.  After my
sister and BIL had taken great pains to take us to the best Japanese and
other restaurants, this girl whined about "why can't we just eat American
food?"  So they took us to a place that actually had American Food on the
window.  She ordered nachos (American?) and I had spaghetti (american?).  To
our dismay we discovered  they had just mashed up the Italian meatballs,
spread them over chips and drizzled them with some sort of cheese.  We had
the greatest laugh over having been served wopchos.  On the way home we
stopped at a noplace restaurant for breakfast that had no menus and the
waitress asked if we wanted the special.  We took it since that's all there
was.  We couldn't eat the sausage, she described them as tasting like puppy
weinies.  The waitress was aghast that we didn't finish the sausage. "People
come for miles to get our sausage!"   I really enjoyed the Japanese food
though.
