Eldon K's. Refrigerator Pickles

Gary Hancq


You've all heard of "Living on the wrong side of the tracks".

Well -- Eldon K. is a fellow that lives on the wrong side of the River. And to make matters worse he's a Hawkeye fan. We've allowed him "Right's of Passage" to cross the river from Iowa into our small town of Port Byron on the right (Illinois) side of Ol' Miss, after he delivered a few batches of these to the frequenter's of our local pub.

Ever since -- Eldon has been welcome anytime. He also does a great job with Chocolate dipped Strawberries. Eldon's place is in plain view 1/2 mile down and across the river from my own place.
