    Send me the recipe for the Sweet Potato Biscuits, please. That sounds good. Then, when we can get out, I’ll get some.

    Where’s the pumpkin???

    What does a pumpkin have to do with Christmas?

    A pumpkin is a sweet potato that dropped out of elementary school.

    If I’m gonna have pie, it has to be pumpkin. Even over homemade lemon meringue.

    Once you have had sweet potato pie, you will never pumpkin again.

    Goose??? Isn’t a goose a duck that knows somebody? I think we’ll stick to ham.

    The ham turned out very nice. We have a month of good eating ahead of us. And the country ham that would have cost upwards of $60 in this part of the world was less than $30 in a part of the world that food.

    But goose, goose is delicacy beyond description.

    (Obvious straight line about “goose” ignored.)

    Actually, I do know the difference between geese & ducks. We have the Canadian geese here, that are a protected species. They often stop traffic crossing a road, & have their own crossing signs. Ducks, I’ve seen them both alive & shot. I’ve even witnessed the c-f of it being plucked. I don’t like duck, it was too greasy. I don’t believe I’ve ever tried goose. Probably won’t, either. I don’t have an “adventerous palate”.
