Chewing the Fat

Hunting for Hemingway and Quail, Part II

This week, Rex and Paul chew the fat a little more about their remarkable quail-hunting trip with the grandson of Ernest Hemingway and the granddaughter of Hemingway's famous editor, Max Perkins (and we use the word "hunting" somewhat loosely), some embarrassing moments involving clay pigeons, how Paul shamelessly exploited his time in the U.S. Navy to learn about bullfighting while stationed in Spain, Rex's lack of experiences on topless beaches, taking city folks to dinner at a bait shop, the alarming news that Paul talks in the sleep while driving, and how sometimes Lackey's tamales in Newport are all you need.
