S2 Ep. 18: A bagna cauda recipe, Florida Man returns, Dave Barry vs. Will Rogers, Eye exam?

Two Old Bucks

Dave shares a special recipe for Bagna Cauda from his cousin Nancy. This stuff is great but you have to quarantine for 12 hours until the garlic stops oozing from your pores.            3 cans anchovies, chopped            1 large bunch of fresh parsley, chopped            2-3 cloves garlic, minced [go for 3]            Olive oil, enough to mix so not dry Put on crackers, pasta, anything you want to taste better.  Nancy got the recipe from her grandfather who brought it from Italy. Dave reads the police blotter in the tabloid paper of a small Florida beach community where the police have a sense of humor and the residents may have too much time on their hands. Not making this up, folks.  The Bucks cringe over “Florida Man” stories recounted by Frank Cerabino, writer for the Palm Beach Post. Full credit to Frank; he’s not making these up, either. Del recognizes more friends we’ve met along the way.The Bucks discuss humorists Will Rogers and Dave Barry. Rogers: Never miss a good chance to shut up.  Barry: You should not confuse your career with your life. We’ve got plenty more of these words of wisdom.  Dave thought he was just getting a new pair of glasses. Confusion ensues.Send your thoughts to buckstwoold@gmail.com
