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.

The end of an era

I found out today that my favorite pizza joint in my hometown is closing for business. I actually make the trek back to NWIN for their pizza every few months. Just because I miss it.

It now appears that I will have to go elsewhere for NWIN style pizza.

It's been a sad day. Oh yeah and I found 2 more grey hairs. Urgh.

I'm hitting the sack. Tomorrow has got to be a little better.

House call

Why will I avoid leaving Iowa at all costs? My dog groomer makes house calls.

Pepper had her eyebrows done today. It's amazing what a little trim can do.
