We've been gone a couple days. Our "spring break" was a return visit to Cook's. It was wonderful having a couple days to be with Jon Weston and his parents. That stupid infection will not leave the poor kid alone. Please join us in praying that it will go away quickly. Yesterday morning I thought we were just dropping by JW's room quickly to say good-bye. But he was having a really good day and there was a Monopoly game waiting for another player. Chris's eyes lit up. Needless to say, we didn't get back to Abilene very early. My least favorite sign I saw on the trip: "VOTE THE BIBLE." Ah yes, such a comforting world. But behind is such naivity about scripture, about interpretation, and politics, and about our culture. It assumes, after all, a Christian society and a Christian worldview. My favorite sign was on the marquee at Pappadeux: "MAHI-MAHI: SO GOOD THEY NAMED IT TWICE." I'm a seafood fanatic, so there are a lot of things I'd be willing to name twice. I could eat fresh seafood every evening for the rest of my life. Raw oysters, grouper, crab, mahi-mahi, amberjack, seafood gumbo, red snapper, scallops, flounder, etc. And shrimp? Bubba was right ("Forest Gump"). You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sautee it. . . . shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. And as Bubba would say, that's about it.
