BRRRRRRRRRRRR! It's getting down into the low 50's tonight. Back in our Colorado days, we'd have snow tires on the car by now. Nowadays, in Texas it's "mud tars." ...only, where we live now, it's rocky. People plow the fields and they sprout rocks. (The fields do, too.)(Ain't pronouns great, bless their vague, indistinct little hearts.) (So, how's that work, anyway?) ( ...and how do it know?)

...think I'll have another little glass of Ol' Grandad and toast all of you out there in sausage-makin'-land.
.:Merry Christmas:.
.:Happy New Year:.
.:Prosperous New Baktun:.
all you Mayans and Mayan wannabes. (You know who you are.)(Most others don't know who they are.)

(... .:and:. why do you gotta put .:colons:. and .:periods:. around everything important, now that we are "blessed" with .:sponsors:. ?)
(And why do they use medical terms like "colon" and "period" for punctuation marks, anyways? "Inquiring minds want to know.")

Ah, progress. This Christmas eve, Santa Claus stays up late and makes a kilo-sized batch of fresh breakfast sausage for everyone to have for tomorrow's brunch. (As the Cajuns, say, "Mo' beddah.") No more midnights putting together bicycles, like back when all I had was SAE wrenches and the rest of the world was switching to metric. Free at last! (Good Gawd Almighty...) Yeah, Ol' Grandad is doin' jes' fine. (Thank ya. Thank ya vurrah much.)

WooHoo! WooHoo! WooHoo!

I hope every member of our forum has the best Christmas ever - with lots of family around you, grandkids all over you, good food in you, and the spirit of Christ with you! May you have lots of great stories, photos, and people spoiling you! And I hope the New Year is filled with lots of pleasant surprises!

My Very Best Wishes,
If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it probably needs more time on the grill! :D

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah from Tampa, Florida... where the only snowmen are artificial, among the holiday lights.

In our neighborhood... (this isn't my house, which is dark).

"BRRRRRRRRRRRR! It's getting down into the low 50's tonight."

We woke up this morning to -30C temps with a wind chill factor that took the temp to -35C. I salted a pork belly with added Canadian maple syrup to be smoked Friday. My good wife has a duck in the oven, to be accompanied by a friend's Alberta grown wild rice, asparagus, and garlic mashed potatoes. After the belly was salted, I got on my Ford pony and went out onto the lake to do some "hardwater fishing" for perch & pike, all in the shirtsleeve comfort of a friends woodheated shack. Came home with fish for tomorrow and a bit of a Christmas glow. All in all a great day!
