    Right! I saw that and said "It's a crawdad" or as we called them down yonder, "Creek Lobster" They are fantastic eating! If you ever have a chance to attend a "Cajun Boil" it's a must do~man do they know how to put on a feed~ it's called "sucking heads" when you eat crawdads and it's phenomenal.

    My parents used to do a crawfish boil every year at their house. The whole neighborhood would chip in and they'd get 300 lb. of crawfish from Louisiana. They used to cover 2 big tables (one hot and one mild) with a bunch of newspaper and dump huge pots of crawfish, kielbasa, potatoes, and corn on the cob. Some of the people in the neighborhood were from Louisiana and they would make Jambalaya and gumbo and it was a full pig out! It was awesome! I really miss that house. Thanks Len for bringing back the memories!

    Hey, you know exactly what I'm talking about! Yeah man, we had some friends from Slidell La come up one time with all the fixins, we only had one kind, hot! LOL! They cooked it all afternoon and like you say, spread it all out on a picnic table and the race was on. It wasn't hot to eat, not in an uncomfortable way, but the heat kept coming on. It wasn't going down that was rough it was my lips felt like they were melting off my face. I don't get into hot stuff at all, but my lips- I said "I'd take a wire brush to my lips to try to get the burn off! LOL! Man, that was one of the best feasts of all times and with fantastic people, they were such awesome people. Never forget it.

    We do that every year in April or May, but on a smaller scale (just family, not the whole neighborhood). Just one fifty pound sack of crawfish, with corn on the cob, red potatoes, and Zummo's Party-Time links (lesser sausages just won't do).

    Maybe things are different up there in Yankeeville, but down here in East Podunk (30 miles from Louisiana border), crawfish season is about over. From about March through June, you could get live crawfish at H-E-B (Texas supermarket chain), but you had to get there early in the morning and buy them by the 30-50 pound burlap sack. But now they're all gone.

    I am so very deeply appreciative of this thread, thank you to the good folks down under for making it happen. Australia's natural riches are endlessly fascinating and entertaining, and these insider views are the best way for me to take it in from a distance. The list of places to visit and things to do in Australia grows daily, what an amazing and beautiful place.
