Turkeys and lamb done, carved, and in the oven; all brisket done, ready to be carved; soda needs to go on ice. General craziness time, so I can’t post more until it’s all over. See you then. ..bruce w..
Some 20 years ago, I wrote Sandra a poem on the 2nd anniversary of our temple sealing. It still says everything I feel for and about her, so here it is: Two Years On Two steps towards eternity Widdershins about the sun, A dance of light in time and space That leads beyond. Threads of […]
As noted below, we’re having one of our Very Large Scale BBQs tomorrow (Saturday). I got up this morning at 0545 and fired up the smoker.
