CLam Diggers ??????????Another Fish Story

I was reading Angelofmaercy's crab story and the Vatraveler's encounter with a whole fish in the military. It inspired this blog.

In my section of New Jersey "clam digger' is a local nickname for the inhabitants.

At just about every little bridge you see people out clammin'-it's a normal event.

Growing up i thought i was exposed to and had eaten nearly every shell fish. Didn't really think much about it.

Its like someone living close to the Liberty Bell or Empire State Building. You know where it is, but hardly visit.

Well about 30 years ago I traveled to Peekskill NY with an aunt who is originally from there.
We went to a restaurant and both had clam chowder. I got violently ill, must have been tainted clams.

A few years later, while out, what do you know, clam chowder on the menu. hey, I ordered a bowl.
Within a half hour I wanted someone to just shoot me and end the misery. A tainted bowl AGAIN!!.

I was having a problem with my kidneys, I don't remember just when it was but way before my son who was 27 yesterday was born. My doctor ordered an IVP-when the injected the iodine into my veins-my whole body turned a bright

The test was stopped immediately,after questioning, the doctor informs me of my clam allergy and that I should list this where ever I go.

Earlier this year while at my niece's she offered me some fish chowder. brought the bowl to me and before I could ladle a spoon-immediately took it away.Hmmmmmmmmm the clams!!

Don't worry, be Happy
