Alpha 1, I'm guessing mine were made 100+ years ago.

Are they for sale? Do you have any pics?

Oh Lordy, NO! Sorry if I gave that impression! They were my Granny's who raised me!

I won't expect otherwise, simply figured if you didn't use them you may wish to sell them. However I understand the real value they have, cherish them for the love they contain...

rafterbr....Do you still have your Griswold skillets? Are they for sale?

I still have my skillets but they are at my ranch in Oklahoma.  I might bring you one before Christmas as I will be traveling back and forth.  I usually sale my calfs in October.. As you know they are quite heavy so about one at a time or maybe two is about all I would be able to manage.  I think everyone should have a good skillet so it would be my Christmas gift to you.

Thank you! You shoulda seen 'em full of the best fried chicken on the planet!

The thing I miss most here in Ajijic is good old home cooked fried chicken,  Most of the people here will never know what a skillet of fried chicken tastes like.  There is one or two places where the chicken is not too bad but not as good as home cooking.  I hope you make gravy with the chicken leavings and home made biscuits.  Now you've made me hungry I'll have to bring a skillet back with me next trip. I'll also bring one for Alpha1.

Bless you! Grandma Nini had a small chicken n' egg business on the Galveston Highway in the 40's and 50's and we either grew, raised, or caught every single thing we ate... I thought we were rich because we had a cow, and Nini taught me to churn butter. My heart will always be in the garden....

Yes he is, the quality of character unfortunately not seen often enough.

Just another Utopian….

Lamenting about fried chicken that was last seen here when they killed the last unicorn. (if it was ever here)

Indeed!!! Indeed!!! Indeed!!!  Maybe it will return with the second coming along with real Irish pub fish and chips.:(:(:(

The popular brand of popcorn, Act II, was preceded by Act I—a product notable because it was made with real butter and required refrigeration.
