A friend of mine on Facebook and someone I know personally mentioned that her son had her buy clams at the store. That reminded me of something funny that happened when I first got out of the Air Force. My brother Rich and I went to a bar/restaurant in Saratoga Springs for lunch. The name of the place was Madame Jumel's. It is named after a famous Victorian lady who was quite famous in her day in Saratoga. He ordered clams for us. I had never had clams before. Back then my brother was quite the drinker and he and I had a couple drinks waiting for our clams. I was getting quite tipsy by the time they came and we started eating them. My brother is somewhat of a cut up and was taking the clam shells and making them talk using funny voices. I was laughing so hard I was almost wetting my pants and everyone was staring at us. I didn't care! Always had a good time with my brother. I still do and he has been sober several years now! One time he had me in a shopping cart and was pushing me down the street in it. We actually got pulled over by a police car! I bet that was the first time they pulled over someone riding in a shopping cart! They told us to stop because it was dangerous. I got out and we waited until they left and he got me back in and took off with me down Caroline St. Caroline St has a very steep hill and goes right past a lot of bars etc.. I was laughing and screaming my head off and then we saw the cop car again. We abandoned the shopping cart and took off into a bar. I sure love my brother, he has made my life very interesting! Here is a picture of him at my wedding! In the first picture he is standing with Tom Maily who used to be a reporter on a local TV station and is now the public relations manager of Stewart's in the area. My brother is wearing the prank underwear I had under my dress for the garter ceremony!
