has it that Huck washed ashore during the great hurricane of June 1609 near
what is now the City of Gautier. In order to survive, he built a shack
for shelter and cooked his already "almost world" famous
burgers. It was an instant hit with the locals and he welcomed the
French and Spanish explorers that happened by on their way to their great
explorations and provided shelter and food for those lucky enough to stop in
Not only did he feed the locals
but he also taught them how to catch fish, crabs, shrimp, crawfish and make
the local food supply into great meals. Many of his guests traveled
west and settled in the villages of New Orleans and Los Angeles only to
start their own restaurants. Huck generously helped them and

spread throughout the land.
Over the centuries, Huck is rumored
to have invented many of today's modern technologies including the wheel,
electricity, air conditioning, no see ums (a dubious invention at best),
money, whiskey, lite beer, cigars, Visa cards and, of course, the world's (almost
famous) "Huck's Burger."

"Fetch" at his feet ... knowing that life is waiting for us to all
take a big sip of Heaven's Great Blessings.
