Good morning all. Yay I found the new thread.


Cyn- I am so sorry to hear about your family troubles. I hope over time things can be worked out for you.

Jaxson- Mike is fine. They found one little benign polyp which was removed. Now I just need the results from my mammogram and we are both good.


Thank you all for your well wishes yesterday. At this time I cannot get into explaining as it is a delicate matter but suffice it to say my DH kicked butt and we won the first round yesterday. Woo hoo and a big happy dance. I am so happy my hubby is smarter than the average bear, lol.

Dinner last night was pancakes because I forgot to take anything out of the freezer. Tonight we are having burgers. Plain for my DH and a cheeseburger for me. Yum

Made the transition to the new thread. We are getting ready to drive up to the Botanical Gardens at Boothbay Harbor. I am very much looking forward to this. Lunch somewhere on the coast.

Well, it's about time, Elston! Looking forward to your description of your day.

Cyn, hugs from me too.

Not sure what's for dinner. Going to the flea market with 3 other ladies from our cul-de-sac while DH paints (altho right now, he's sawing wood, if ya know what I mean!). I hope to come home with a new bathing suit.

Have a great day all.

I'm having sirloin steak on the grill tonight, and I'll throw in a baked potato, salad, and sliced tomatoes for good measure.

Tonight we have company coming. Chicken and yellow rice my daughter is bringing. Wife will add veggies as requested from our freezer and will make a garden salad. Got mangoes chilling for dessert.

Got to brush up on grilling as both my sons are going to be home for the Labor day weekend. Should have both daughters here so all eight grand children will be here for me to pester....Ages 6-20. It's going to be a riot. My mom has neighbors that do whole hogs....Need to talk to them about maybe doing one for us. Just a small one that we can use up over the 4 days we will all be together.

Oh, Nomad, how I envy you....We love whole hog cookouts. Friends of ours would do this once every summer and all of us, (about 50) would bring side dishes and have the grandest of times. We would start out about 3 in the afternoon, play some music, have light snacks beforehand and ice cold drinks. Just about every kind imaginable. The hog roast would be tended to by our hosts and final preparations would be made for some of the brought in dishes.

A few small campfires would than be constructed on various places not to far from the roasting hog. Our hosts has about 100 acres but we only 'partied' on about 1 1/2 acres near their lovely home and lake. Now when the time came to gather around and begin the dinner, everyone would assist and oh how wonderful the rest of the evening would be.

Our hosts would remove our meat entree from its roasting place and it would have the place of honour on one of the many tables that had been set up. Then the carving would take place. The aroma was enough to make your mouth water in anticipation of this glorious feast.

Would love to be a part of this event again and again, but alas, our hosts no longer are amongst us. I miss them and their whole hog roasts. This was always a grand event for so many of us. Good friends, good times and great food. Esp. the whole hog.
