Had a thawed breast, and the drum at the shop on saturday. I was working and decided to cook the breast while making a few dollars. Cut a small slit in the skin (which quickly turned into a big slit), and stuffed as much butter as I could get under it, and gave it a generous coating of rub.

Rats! No skewers at the shop! What am I gonna do? Ok, here's a 1/8" X 1/8" piece of hickory. Looks like it oughta fit in the pencil sharpener. Hmm, not to bad. Should work.

It was warbird day at the Tulsa Air & Space Museum, so I got to watch a lot of these guys flying around. My Shop is on the base leg for the N/S runway at Tulsa Inetrnational Airport. Moving planes are a ***** to take a pic of. These are the only two good shots of 12 tries.:roflmaoha0:

Looks great! I'll bet they guys at the shop were mad that you took it home after teasing them with the smell all day.

Has Angela been sick? I didn't know. What got her down?

Bird is beautiful.

Did you see any yellow T-6 underwings? they usually fly three in formation. There used to be four of them, but one of the guys died. One of them is a good friend of mine.

Glad she's doing well.

Seems to me the question should be "after she's been without cigarettes for 10 days, how are you doing?:roflmaoha0::roflmaoha0:

Hope all goes well for both of you!

Trav, It's been so long since I've seen you. Your avatar pic makes it look as if you've lost a fair amount of weight.
