Christmas 2007

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! This year, I decided to stay here instead of going to my folks' house. I go down most years, but, not all. Chels was not going to be there (poor thing is in sad!), and I was just down in Sept. and Nov. so, decided to just relax at home.

I did talk to mom and dad and everyone seems to have had a good holiday. There was one change this year....instead of cooking, mom ordered dinner from 17th Street Bar and Grill....several slabs of ribs and a couple pounds of pulled pork, etc... I'm sure it was tasty!!

Christmas afternoon, I had to go to Connie's for the gift she got me because "it won't fit in [her] car". hmmmm.... I'm completely lost... Unlike myself, she didn't ask for ideas or a list or anything. So, I have no idea what to expect, let alone what could be so large to not fit in her car. I get there and it's covered up in the living room....I still have no clue!! Maggie tried to tell me it was "thin screen" TV... You know, they're the next big thing!!!! LOL Anyway, I "unwrap" it and Tada!!!!!
Tim and Smoker
She got me a smoker!!!!! In our random conversations, I had mentioned it would be cool to learn how to do ribs / bbq..have an all day cookout, etc.., but, I'd never done that and didn't have a smoker. One thing I've noticed over the years, she's a great gift giver!

As I mentioned above, I had to ask for a list (I think clueless pretty well describes my gift giving abilities). :-) This was one of the things on Connie's wish list.
Connie and Stairs
She *says* this is her favorite. She's nice like that. :-)

Oh, and Mary who reads my blog but never comments....I also got a bottle of UV Blue!! LOL

Anyway, it was a great Christmas! I hope yours was as well!

My Flock Rocks! said...

Nice!!! At first I thought it was a safe...then I read on~ I'll bring the beverages to the first smoke out!

That's the gift that keeps on giving.

Mary wrote me an email commenting on your blog.

Just don't burn your smoker like Chuck did.

You could make MY Christmas by giving me that smoker. *giggles*

Once I figure out how to use it, there'll definitely be a cookout!! I can tell you that I'm definitely ready for *that* weather!!!

That's awfully nice (and ambitious) of you, flock!!! I have very thirsty friends! :-)

@gordo - I'm certain there's a good story there! You'll have to fill me in! LOL

@fraochan (how do you pronounce that anyway) - I don't know about giving it to you...but your more than welcome to come over and teach me how to use it! haha

My mouth is watering at the prospects of what can be done with this piece of equipment. I'm envious.
