Biz Buzz • Dianne Lively Yost
Come on Momma! Let’s go for an evenin’ stroll! We can spy on all the neighbors and steal flowers from other people’s gardens! The hydrangeas are flat perf for the pick! Lord have mercy! Just feel that end-of-day breeze! It’s flat good to be alive! What’s that? Ding dang it Momma! You know you ain’t ‘posed to carry ‘round a White Lightnin’ traveller! You’re gonna get us both in trouble by the police! I’m talkin’ mug shots and finger prints! Shoot fire! Oh well give me a swig of that moonshine! Boy howdy do da day! Now that’ll lighten the load! This calls for our favorite springtime tune! “You getta line and I’ll getta pole, Honey. You getta line and I’ll getta pole, Babe. You getta line and I’ll getta pole and we’ll go fishin’ in the crawdad hole hon . . .” WAAAAH! Waah! Wah! Get out the earplugs ‘cause that baby over yonder is flat havin’ a fit! Yikes! Don’t look now but that baby’s got a big ole ugly bald spot on the back of its little head! I’d cry too bless its little baby heart! But wait! Stop cryin’ y’all ‘cause the cure for baldin’ babies is here! That’s right! It’s called the Infant Hair Protector and it was flat invented by none other than Madisonian Victoria McGee Walton! Right so Victoria invented a 100 percent satin headrest for cribs, bouncers, swings, car seats, you name it! The satin headrest reduces the amount of friction that causes baby’s hair to break and shed and allows beautiful baby hair to re-grow! Brilliant! I mean Victoria is a stay-at-home mom and an entrepreneur who was inspired to come up with a solution for her own babies! She even found a manufacturer in China and everything! Y’all can check it all out at www.babywalton.com and you can find them at Lilywind Kid’s in Madison located at 206 West Washington St., across from Town Park! It’s the perf baby gift! Whew! All this baby talk has flat got me famished! And it’s a good thing ‘cause Eenoco Japanese Steak & Sushi is flat fixin’ to open at 133 South Main St., in Madison right down from the most fabulous shop ever Godfrey Cox! I kid you not! Owner Heath Burton says it could open as early as next week but he’s flat sure it’s gonna open before June 20! It all depends on when his equipment is delivered! Y’all get your chop sticks ready honey ‘cause this is gonna be Delish with a capital D! Here’s a sneak peek of the menu! Ok! The Starters portion of the menu is slap full of choices but a few really stand out like Chrispy Shrimp Wraps, Steak or Spicy Tuna Sliders, Crab Rangoon with wontons filled with cream cheese and crabmeat, and Veggie, Shrimp, Chicken, or Lobster Tempura and more! They also have an assortment of soups and yummy salads! Entrees are super with dishes like Steak Burgers, Spicy Tuna Burgers, Fried Seafood Platters and more! Oh and the Sushi is to die for good and the selection practically endless! I’m talkin’ Steamed Shrimp, Crab Sticks, Squid, Steak Nigiri, Chop Scallops, Bang Bang (tempura chicken, jalapenos & spicy mayo), Atomic Bomb (crab, crunches, baked salmon) and the list goes on!

Enjoy wine and great food and get yourself this fabulous book, signed by Tarrant Smith (aka Stephanie) and get ready to be transported into a dark, fun, fantasy world! Yikes! I almost forgot!
