Hello from Kentucky

Hi all found this sight when looking at pictures of the Vietnam war in Pinterest this war has always been my favorite subject have several books on it written from first hand accounts I feel the way our soldiers were treated when they came home is one of the darkest times in our history and feel our vets and soldiers from any time in service deserve our utmost respect and support. Sincerely Jim G

Hey Blugrass!

Does your state still have GENUINE "Kentucky Fried Chicken' stores..rather than the poor immitation franchise..KFC?

When "Kentukey Fried Chicken" first arrive in Australia, it was cooked in animal fat, was too hot to pick up for about 20 minutes after you got it home, and it was THE BEST fast food EVER!

The slop they sell now is a paleface imitation. Colonel Sanders would blanche at the taste of it. In the old days, it was even better COLD, and I remember my mother actuallt castigating me for elaving it to go cold, and missing my dinner on those wonderful Fast Food Fridays we used to have.

the line at the store used to go round the "hut", anda visit to Kentucky Freid Chicken used to take up to an hour and a half on a weekend, or more on a public holiday.

Do you still have the original cooked in that beautiful tasting animal fat? or is it the KFC crap we get now?

Great Questions Of Our Time at armchair!
