Kind of slow today, huh? Well tell me , what's everyone cooking for the 4th. Aren't we getting tired of hamburgers and hot dogs. This time of the year, what sounds good?

BBQ chicken in a sweet sauce with corn, corn bread, and baked beans.

Anything as long as mustard is nearby!

Started off last nite with poke chops. Switching to grilled yardbird tonite with some Sweet Baby Ray's on it. 'The Sauce is the Boss!' Tomorrow it's shrimp on the grill - colossal size, raw in the shell. Butterfly 'em a little bit & baste 'em really good with some extra virgin olive oil. Crack some pepper & sea salt over 'em & cook about 2 minutes per side. The shells will turn bright pink & the meat becomes opaque like tiny lobsters. So good! For Uncle Sammy's birthday, it's ribeyes. Yum, I love me a good Holiday Weekend! Oh, yeah, the Tour is cool. I'm with Nicolas; ya gotta love the non-injury wipeouts.

' what's everyone cooking for the 4th' I'll get back to you after I check the expiration dates on the stuff in the freezer.

I think H_Lecter may be using my freezer out in the garage without my knowledge. Found some mighty suspicious looking packages out there.

I monitor craigslist (among other sites) now that I know my new best friend is there. But like here, he doesn't last long.

I have a mower. His name is Tim.

I have a dishwasher too. Right now she is sitting on the couch. Mending my socks.

if your sweet potato stuff, autie, is as good as your mower selling skills, c'mon over. shoulda posted earlier or I shoulda read earlier or something becuz I, too, sold a mower today, a Cub Cadet for a c-note. A quick review of the sale's return on investment indicates I'm doing it wrong. More room in the barnette, though, and it runs as good as the first day I never used it.

Roe, I'm trying to picture how your socks might've worn out. That usually involves motion, does it not? :-O}

She could maybe do iron-on patches . . . if she had an iron . . .

But she makes sammitches, that's what counts. Hubby knows better than to ask for a sammitch after 10 PM ain't gonna happen.

'Bout the oldest vehicle I can remember my dad having was a '31 Ford pickup, but it was about 25 years old at the time. He sold it to a guy who was going to make a hotrod out of it. Seemed pretty cool to this 6 year old but wish I had it now in original condition. Looked a lot like this one.

Damn . . . Is it my turn in the barrel again so soon? Okay, fire away. I probably deserve it . . .
