Sweet. Hope the weather holds. Raining like hell in DSM.

Now you boys put your shirts back on and quit scaring off the townsfolk. Remember the newspaper will be there. Surely with a camera. Make us proud.

Edit: And to clarify, that's "Walking Dude" (I look a lot like Tom Cruise) LOL

The fish, brisket and moink balls look great; but can we refrain from saying Steve's rump sure looks tastey......(next thing ya know the guy will switch from belly to rump shots) Yikes !!!
