What does it all mean?
Grinders, Cabinets, Stuffies, Bullrake,
when is dinner? well, it is at noon of course...
because the one at night is Supper.
Who was one of the first states to be into coffee?
Washington with Starbucks? No way..
Way back in the 30's and 40's there was
coffee syurp, coffee ice cream, coffee milk,
ice coffee and coffee at resturants was served
with cream, which we jokingly said we like a
little coffee with our cream. But you have to
ask not to have cream in your coffee
if you want it black.
Also we disliked travelling more than 10
minutes from our home town. It was so bad,
that a lady in Wakefield moved to the town
where her son lived so she could be closer to her
grandchildren... she moved to Woonsocket.
About half an hour drive. Oh, yea and we
have a lot of unpronounceable names.
And we hate changes. We rather cuss
the rut than have to change it.
Where else do they have pot hole derby's?
And Victory Day is a state holiday?
And most of the population moves to
Florida after the age of 60.
Oh, and do you know what Stuffies are?
And that they are made with Quahog?
And what a Quahog is?
Grinders, Cabinets, Stuffies, Quahogs,
bullrake, what does this all mean?
Grinders are Subs here in the west,
Cabinets are milkshakes,
Stuffies are made with Quahogs,
(which are big clams) that are mixed
with a stuffing mix, put back in to the
clam shell and baked.
Almost as good as lobster. Bullrake is a
rake that you drag across the bay floor
to get the Quahogs. With handles about
10 feet long. Real talent to handle those babies.
What do these have in common?
They are all traits of being a Rhode Islander..
One that is born to a native Rhode Islander .
And that is why I like Idaho, because so
many of these traits are here too. And that
is why I only end up in CdA about 2 or 3
times a year.
There They Go, Again!
