Oops I hit the publish button before I wanted to yesterday so will put that info in here.
Its been so nice here that our local golf course was open both Saturday and Sunday, a first at least as far back as I can remember.
I also wanted to post a couple picture of the stream out front that runs under our driveway. Seeing it in purpose is better but the ice over top of the running water was pretty.
And here is the new table/card for the Smoker once I get it set up.

Well I was able to work on the taxes for a couple hours this afternoon and made it through. I will wait a couple more days and wait to see if anything else comes to mind. I had to file an amended return one time and now try not to get in to big of a hurry. Looked out the front door this afternoon and the front yard was full of deer munching on the grass.

Just got an email my smoker is supposed to come tomorrow via UPS, I ordered some Rub from the West coast and Bonnie just bought a pork butt so maybe we will be trying the smoker by this weekend.
Thats about it for today, I hear we may get a little snow tomorrow.
Glanced out the door when I got up this morning a sure enough more deer in the yard. Checked UPS and my smoker is on the truck along with the rub, oh boy. Its Friday so through in the laundry and read some blogs along with breakfast.
Jumped in the truck and up to court for 3 hours. Back home picked up the mail but no smoker yet.
Elizabeth and Alexus came for dinner and Bonnie got home on time also. Finally the big brown truck pulled in the driveway. He brought the rub.
It is famous on the West coast so we will give it a try. Elizabeth also brought my StrongBack chair that was delivered yesterday.

|Very Comfortable some say the best they ever sat in, time will tell|
I went out to the garage to unpack the smoker. The box had a hole and was a little beat up.
|Something Poked a hole|
|Tops a little beat up|
|A small rip|
|The control box powers up|
|The heating element works|
|Set up and ready to go|
Woke up this morning to about 1/2 inch snow. I think it has snowed all day and now we have 4 or 5 inches. We were able to get a lot done today. First I took the ladder into Elizabeths and Bonnie met her sisters at the town hall to notarize some papers. Before I left with the ladder I set up the smoker outside and seasoned it.

|Works good but I did have to read the directions|
|Is Elizabeth the supervisor or the safety officer? Your choice.|
|Alexus jumped right in and helped with the fan in the bedroom.|
Lots of snow when we got up this morning. The Honda made it out no problem even though the snow was deep enough that it was dragging on the bottom. It snowed more while we were at church but we made it back in no problem. We did a quick change of clothes and then right back out, no problems, to head to my SILs for lunch with her, my FIL and MIL. We had one of my favorite meals. Both ham and toasted cheese sandwiches and Chili (made with home canned tomatoes) Delicious!
|We arrived to a lovely set table, then I forgot to get a picture of the great meal.|
|Thats a real card shark on the right side.|

We had a great day and even though the roads were a bit slippery we made it home safe and sound. I went back out and cleaned the driveway as best I could as it got dark while I was out there. I can clean it up better tomorrow and it looks like it will melt again latter in the week. The garage will be a mess with melted snow but I can sweep it out tomorrow.
Nacos and cheese for supper and now watching recorded shows.
Its been a great week and good times spent with family.
Thanks for Checking In.
