What a Thanksgiving!

I'm back!

I know you all missed me terribly - but I have to admit I had a great weekend (minus the 8 hours on the road).

First I want to introduce a new reader to my blog:

Meet Chep's Mom.

Don't worry she has read the prior posts. She does not live in denial of her packratism. She embraces it.

She's a spunky lady - but I can't say I expect her to create her own blog - so don't look for one anytime soon....

She did however embrace my new fangled idea of the Thanksgiving Tailgate. It was good times. We fried turkey, drank beer and played Pit.

This is Mr. Chep dropping the turkey into 350 degree oil.

If you have not had deep fried turkey - you should. It is tender, juicy and FAST!! This 13 pound turkey was cooked in just under 50 minutes.

And no - it isn't greasy!

You have met Chep's mom.

If Chep's mom is visiting - you can bet that Chep's dad will drop in from time to time.

This is Chep's dad.

He has my sense of humor don't you think?

Nope wasn't his idea to take the photo - but he did walk in with the pumpkin roll in a very provocitive location. I took advantage when he laid it on the table.

I crack me up.

It's getting late and I want to get this posted so I will continue with a post tomorrow about my future inheritence - aka: Chep Mom's collections.

Way to go, father Chep. Or maybe I should say, Good for you, Mama Chep!

Don't get the aluminum foil thing, though. Is it fear of government radio waves?

Glad to see that you made it back, we have missed you like crazy Cheparoonie. Can’t wait to see the inheritance photos.

Chep’s mom has a lovely smile.

MMMMM, pumpkin rolls. Haha.

Chep's Mom! I am so roadtripping to wherever-the-heck you live. Please get me an appointment with your stylist. I MUST have that haircut. Seriously, that is MY kind of haircut: short & sassy!

Love it!
