come on by.

I'm going to do a pork butt for some pulled pork sandwhiches and thinking about either doing burgers and dogs or fajitas. From there on Its going to be a crap shoot. I generally cook good so I'll just go to the store and pick some stuff and and it'll be good. Thats just how I Roll.

05-19-2010, 08:50 PM
Yummy!!! Looking forward to it. I'm not sure what time we'll get there, 'cause I do have to knock out a couple of chores Saturday morning. :tiphat:

Do you and Amy have a pool? Just curious if I should bring some jams and a towel.

Andrew,
I'd love to bring the wife and come by, but I'm knee deep in remodeling (hanging sheetrock and mortaring stone at the moment) :hairpull:. I'm hoping to be able to come up for air and take a breather in the near future, so maybe you will have something again.... before too long. I also missed the get together that Thorn had planned due to the freakin' house. I did enjoy meeting you and would definately like to throw back a few cold ones with you guys though. Anyways, I hope ya'll have a great time. Don't let Bill get drunk and run naked down the road, neighbors tend to frown on that.

I asked and speak a very little bit of spanish. I do speak french and both are romantic languages and have alot of similar words or words that mean the same thing with different pronunciation or slight differences in spelling.

The pulled pork came out great. I made 2 different flavors. Carolina Mustard BBQ and Texas BBQ. Both are good. the Texas bbq is really smokey and the carolina is kind of a sweet mustard

Appreciate everyone coming out and grubbing with us. Food turned out pretty good. We had a great time. Will deff. have to have another cook out soon. I need to work on getting a pool, damn easement won't let me though :(. Guess I gotta stick with sitting on the sprinkler lol.

Get an above ground pool, they are very affordable and worse comes to worse it could be moved if they ever had to use the easement......which on the other side of never.

Nice seeing David out there and the food was outstanding. I had a wonderful time Andrew even got a man's purse I was shocked but I'll let him post the story. I am the one who brought it for him. LOL. Thanks to Amy and Andrew for a wonderful day. You all missed a real blast.

Glad yall had a good time. We really enjoyed yall coming out. I dig the Man's Purse yall got me. I'll name it my Murse lol. (its a kick butt bamboo bag loaded with man stuff ie... grilling stuff). You'd think I was a shovel the way I was diggin it. :doot:

we've given alot of thought to doing this but everytime we get close to pulling the trigger it's the thought of only getting your waist wet and not really being able to get the full use out of it. I figure we'll do a couple more years in the house and get it paid down pretty good with some decent equity and looke at either building a house or finding something with everything we want. Amy wants a 1 story, I like the 2 story cause she doesn't come upstairs into my Man Cave.

I have a 16 foot easement in my yard so can't build chit. I guess my next garage will have a pool and might even have a small house attached with it.

Sixteen foot?? That's some bull****!!!!!

who you telling. with the easement and then not being able to build with in 5 feet of your house I'd only be able to have a small lap pool .

Same with us...the back 12 feet is off limits and I'm not building a bird bath.

I have an 18 foot round above ground pool. It's actually quite nice for a 1/10th of the price of an inground pool. And it comes up to my chest. I am 5'9", and it's 54 inches to the top, I fill it up to around 50-51. I didn't think I would like it as much as I do and thought the kids would be the biggest beneficiaries but it's a lot of fun. I just wish I would have went with the 21 ft model, but because I did follow the easement rules there wasn't as much room. I could have infringed the 3 extra feet towards my fence and pulled it off but oh well. We still love it.

Same with us...the back 12 feet is off limits and I'm not building a bird bath.

If you are talking about above ground pools than that's unfair, they are actually more fun than you might think and fyi you can build them with a deep part, they will dig out the middle, I think up to 7', it does effect the installation cost though.

We had a great time and enjoyed visiting with everyone! Andrew all that grub was awesome! Amy's spinach dip was killer also - definitely need to bring that stuff to the tailgate!
