WOW! I had a lot of reading to do!
Seeing as how I am working afternoons AND I am working 12 hours/day it makes even more difficult to get online and see what's up on our thread.
Now, to get to the heart of the matter! The "basement rally".
Harold - I sure will miss your flamingo hat! It made you look at the smarter!
John - If you are not bringing the wife then you better be able to be as fun as she is. I know, I know... That's a stretch.
Carol, Carol and Carol - I am not sure which one I am talking to so I will address all three. Something "IN" the dish is what all of us are shooting for. Then you leave with an empty dish. Not the other way around.
I agree with John. We should start a new thread after the next rally plans are announced. Let's plan on that. I will have a big calendar in my basement so we can pick a date together. If you want some input into when and where the rally will be held, show up at my house this Saturday evening between 4:30 and 5:00 p.m.
If anyone has any special needs for a beverage please let me know ASAP as Candie will be going out to the store Thursday.
Just to let everyone know... I will not be making my famous smoked chicken BUT
we will be having a Western New York favorite known as "Beef on Weck". It is roast beef that is seasoned and cooked slowly. Then you throw it on some salt and carraway seed rolls with a little horseradish! Candie's family is from western NY so she knows this stuff.
PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU STILL NEED DIRECTIONS TO MY HOME.
