Why This Forum Rocks! (And a touch of Qview!)

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
So many things have changed in my life in the past few months. Wife had been working out of state since last November. She had my now 15 month old son with her. She got back the end of July. My 11 year old son's mother joined the National Guard and is deploying to Iraq in March. He moved in with me. I retired from the Army and started a new job in July. All these changes have taken a toll on the free time I grew accustomed to. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't change any of it, but If I could alter time, I'd build in two extra hours a day to hang out in this forum.

I have said many times it is the great people that are members here that make this site such a great place. I'm giving a shout out to krusher and erain. I got a PM from both of them on Saturday wondering where I have been and If I'm OK. I haven't spent any real time in here for about a month and they noticed it and came calling. Thanks for thinking of me guys!

I have been able to get my smokes in though. Here's some pics of a party I supplied the food for two weeks ago. A final thanks to Pineywoods for the pigs he gave me. This was number three of four. The last one hit the trash can when my garage freezer took a dump on me last Saturday.

Here's what I have going on right now. Just a teaser - I'll post everything when I get finished.

This is 172 lbs of boneless pork shoulder

Hope ya'll enjoyed my pics, more from me tomorrow!

Thanks for all the support and kind words gang. I really did not mean by far that I ain't happy with all the changes life has thrown at me all at once! Just overwhelmed at times, but we're all getting into routines and taking things day by day!
