    Justin . . . 1st time behind the camera, or was Chris making you “nervous”? Wow, that fly ain’t just for the “McKie” . . . it’d work great Up Here too ! But, don’t ya think this “CornFed” stuff is just “Food Fodder”? Especially with the “Fettuccine” noodles ? Practically got a full blown 3 course Meal going ! Just Add Sauce (Marinara preferred) / red hot spot, and some Italian ham (trailing shuck?). Spumoni and Espresso for dessert, yum !
    Eat enough of THAT and “we” may wind up looking like “old George” the Cook, like in the previous video’s (word mouthing for Redington, Sage and Rio).
    Just have some Word-Fun of my own, can’t help myself . . . every time I hear George’s Verbage it gets “me going” !
