Musta been a good time...It's spelled F-L-O-R-I-D-A...! Since there are no adult beverages in FLORIDA, I'm sure that none were consumed...

Hehehe.. floida. Maybe he has a speech impediment. I can definitely say I have heard it pronounced like that many times.

Jim and Alice! Thank you SO very much for opening your wonderful home to me and kenya (my dog for those who don't know) I had a great time there cooking in your kitchen, next time I will smoke some food so I can sit out by the smokers and listen to the game all day. I had a great time talking with your son as well. We will have to make this a yearly event but not the only time of the year I get to see you all. Hope you enjoy ALL that food! Foodsaver vacuum is a good thing!

Fatback Joe: An absolute pleasure meeting you as well. Thats one badd a$$ smoker you got there. I already check out their site this morning and looked at various models. I don't even have a house to put one at and I am already looking. Let me know if you can sneak away from the family someday and I will take ya fishing. We also need to do some more smoking!

Scotty and rockyb (forgive my poor memory but I forgot your name) A pleasure meeting you both. I am happy you enjoyed the pie and thank you SO very much for the wine. I am going to take those to the parents and let them enjoy it as well.

John: I wish I had a little more time to talk to you but it was still fun to meet you and hopefully next time we will talk some more. Thanks for comming.

I am sure I am missing someone so please forgive me if I have. I am still very tired and not thinking straight.

I took some q-view and will post that later when I feel up to thinking. For now let me sink back into unconsciousnessPDT_Armataz_01_15.gif

I had a great time. The day flew by and next thing you know I was rushing to try to get loaded up and attempt to get home before it got toooo dark outside (my trailer lights weren't working PDT_Armataz_01_19.gif ).

It was great getting to put faces with the names, the food was secondary IMO even though it was what brought us together.

FLA Griller - great job cooking, you turned out a ton of meat on 3 different cookers and did not miss a beat.

Vlap - That night right before I went to be my wife said "I wish someone would have cut into that apple pie so I could have had some before I left." LMAO go figure. PDT_Armataz_01_07.gif

icon_mrgreen.gif That definitely wasn't chicken pot pie that I was eatingicon_mrgreen.gif

It was excellent also.

You didnt see a bunch of us inside hanging around Jeff and refusing to give him room to walk freely till he started cutting the pie.

Don't worry about not having a house. You get that thing and you can keep that brand new Stumps at mine........I promise I will take good care of it for you and let you visit when ever you want. LOL

I am taking you up on the fishing the first chance I get. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Ok, but don't ask to borrow my trailer. LOL
