I'm looking forward to next Saturday evening. We are going to have a Region Rat Rendezvous at Barkley Lodge State Resort Park. They have a killer smorgasbord at the lodge.

Chris (seejay2)and his wife Donna, Roger (Roger D) and his wife Ann, and yours truly and my wife Georgeann are supposed to meet at the lodge and do some serious pigging out.

Both Chris and Roger are from Hessville, so I know I am going hear lots about life in that part of Hammond.

Tom

P.S. If there are any other Region Rats in the area, you are most welcome to join us.

When you shred Mozzarella and put it on top of dough & sauce---if it is
put on thick enough, it could resemble a haystack ??? SC

There used to be a Pagliai's pizza in Bloomington, IN at Indiana U back in the 1970's. Don't know if it is still there or not.
S C Jones Posted - 11/13/2012 : 19:27:59
Tom, I hope to do that, maybe by spring or summer.

And guys--look at this:
Pagliai's Pizza Des Moines, IA - We use organic meats, the freshest vegetables, and custom blended mozzarella cheese to create the pizza that has made us on of the ...

Pagliai's Pizza | Polly Eye's Pizza | Mankato's Pagliai's is the oldest pizzeria in Mankato, and is also one of the oldest restaurants in the city.

A & A Pagliai's Pizza is the best pizza in Iowa City, Iowa.

Kirksville, MO - Pagliai's Pizza is a pizzeria in Kirksville, MO that offers fine pizza recipes

You are going to have to join us one of these days, S.C.!

Really!?!?!? With a name like that? I could see it if it was Smith or Jones. Oh well...Cj
Roger D Posted - 11/13/2012 : 10:10:19
It is my understanding that even though they have the same name Pagliai's in Murry and Princeton are not owned by the same prople.
Go figure.

I never had John's, as much as I always heard about it. I said that the sausage here would be better suited for breakfast, but I'm not absolutely certain of that. I can't really describe it as I have never had anything like it before. It's not horrible, but it sure isn't what I am used to either.
I guess everybody has their 'fave' pizza no matter where you go on the planet. I was spoiled on Cande's. "House" came in second and in my eye, everybody else was jockeying for position. I've had Aurelios in several different locations and it was good, but we are talking a whole different time frame. They opened one in Portage (carry out only)while I was still there. When they first opened it was some 'outta sight' pizza, but after their foot was in the door the quality fell off quite a bit. Sanfratello's was great, but only in the Glenwood, Il. location (it's worth the trip).
Bottom line: they don't know what pizza is down here. Domino's, Pizza Hut and 'cookie cutter' crap like that isn't even in the running with me...Cj
tom w Posted - 11/12/2012 : 19:48:36
C.J. Johns Pizza in Cal City used that sausage. It looked to me like dog food but their pizza was as good as it got. That means almost as good as Tommy Aurelios on Ridge Road.
Looks like you guys still know how to have a good time too. Glad everyone is healthy and well fed. Tom w
seejay2 Posted - 11/12/2012 : 08:08:01
Oh SC, how right you are!!
We create our own pizzas here at home with the 'Boboli' style crusts. I buy bulk sweet Italian sausage in the local Kroger and I also have a shaker full of fennel because I have to add. There is one pizza joint in all of Murray near the university that is salvagable, Matt B's. But like you say, that sausage on it is from some other dimension. It tastes more suitable for breakfast or something. To make matters worse, the pieces are round, like chick peas, so about half of them roll off the slice when you pick it up. I had a weak moment when I wanted to suggest the 'proper' ("Region Rat Italian") kind of sausage for pizza, but I think you are right. People won't take to it. Besides, who's gonna listen to some damn Yankee spill into town and start telling people how to cook...Cj

Nice picture with everyone in short sleeves---and it is November.

cj: if the pizza has fennel in the sausageŃ real italian sausageŃsoutherners don't seem to like it. I cannot find a pizza down here that compares to NWI. One place is even called Chicagos' Pizza---but, it just isn't much more than bland tomato sauce with cheese on top. I asked the Chicago place about fennel and they said they had it when they first opened, but people didn't like it.

...and I'm still thinking about pizza, too. I have been all day. The name of the place in Princeton is Pagliai's, as it is here in Murray. Here's the difference though:
In Princeton, people rated it 5 (out of 5) stars. In Murray it only got 3...Cj
Roger D Posted - 11/11/2012 : 09:38:51
Looks like a pic you might see in the post office! HA HA!!
Enjoyed the evening very much. We are now looking forward to getting together again.
Tom J Posted - 11/11/2012 : 09:12:50
Here's the gang from the Region Rat Rendezvous.



That's Donna and Chris Johnson on the left side of the table, Roger and Ann Dukes on the far end, and Georgeann and yours truly on the near end.

Tom J Posted - 11/08/2012 : 17:51:56
Yep, I'm just a youngster.
seejay2 Posted - 11/08/2012 : 07:31:38
Doesn't it feel good to be the 'kid' now, Tom?...Cj
Tom J Posted - 11/07/2012 : 18:19:58
Thanks, SC. No, I don't believe I had seen that.

I was in the Class of '67.

Tom
S C Jones Posted - 11/07/2012 : 15:48:32
Tom,
Have you seen this: (ON Planet Hammond) Chuck Biller: For all you HHS grads from 1963, 1964 & 1965. We're planning a 22 hour, 2 day get-together at Wicker Park next July 27 & 28, 2013. Come to my page, chuck.biller.39 and join the group for the reunion for further details.

I posted it earlier, but thought it might have gotten lost in our sudden burst
of posting about the Saturday Hammond Bash.
Roger D Posted - 11/07/2012 : 14:18:36
Just called the Lodge, Saturday is BBQ night. BBQ ribs, chicken, pulled pork and beef brisket to die for! Also fried chicken, plain pulled pork and more. A salad bar and all kinds of veggies.
I am getting hungry!!
Roger D Posted - 11/06/2012 : 16:55:11
Ann and I are also looking forward to the meet at Lake Barkley Lodge. We are to meet at five o'clock for those who might want to join us. It will be "Dutch Treat" unless Tom has hit the lottery and that is hard to do when you don't gamble. I plan on calling the lodge tomorrow to see what is on the menu. Whatever it is I know it will be good!
S C Jones Posted - 11/04/2012 : 10:52:44
Thanks, guys, for keeping the idea alive.

And, CJ--you are so right about the weather being a factor. The spring brings
tornado threats and hits (especially up that way, it seems).
I had not noticed the number of rain/storm days in Murray until this past spring/summer. My neighbor has a son who is now at the college. That and my knowing that you guys live up in that area has made me look more closely at the weather patterns.
AND THE HEAT was unbearable this past summer--even with less humidity.

Tom, now you are suggesting I REALLY get fit for travel, if Hammond is to be a
reconnoiter site.

Let's do keep the idea alive and since Ken is the farthest from point of gathering,
we need to get him in on any plan.

Youse guys have a good time with your spouses and memories of the "good old days"...
Tom J Posted - 11/04/2012 : 07:41:02
I'd sure be up for it! I would like to do it in Hammond so we could visit some of our old neighborhoods and stuff. We could have a meal at Tiebel's or House of Pizza or whatever might still be around from the good old days.

Tom
seejay2 Posted - 11/04/2012 : 07:35:35
I don't think we've forgotten about that idea either, SC. I know at the time I would have wanted to do it, either we were out of town doing something or it was so unforgivingly hot that...well, who would want to spend good time in malls or in the house under the air conditioners? I'm still in for the idea of a get together (while we still can), but I think we should toss it out there from time to time just to keep it alive. Next spring some time??...Cj

Ken and I had wondered (sometime a year ago in emails) if my idea of
us all getting together would work out. I said I didn't think anyone was interested
in pursing the idea---but, now lookee here.

Glad you guys are getting together. Have fun.

Tom, I am not that far away--if i were feeling well enough to drive the distance.
Thanks for the invite. Afraid it won't be possible this time. If you find you hit it
off and plan to gather again, maybe I will be able to make it.



Tom J Posted - 11/04/2012 : 05:34:16
S.C. and Ken, it would be great to have both of you with us for this get together. I wish you could both make it.

The same goes for the rest of you Sheptalk buddies.

Tom
wvcogs Posted - 11/03/2012 : 21:56:49
Same here S C. I'd like to make that trip over to the west side of KY, but it's just a little too far for me to go at this time. My nemesis hit me again last month for the first time in over a year, so it'll be a while before I drive any long distances.

You'se gonna learn a whole heap about the 'Hess', son. I still learn something about it every time I go up on this board...Cj

PS--I look at this little soiree as acquiring the Kentucky/Barkley lake area as possible annexation to 'Da Region'.
