First I want to say THANK YOU to Jerry and Karen you two did a fabulous job again. The place is and was amazing again. Then to all the folks that showed up this year ya'll sure made it fun again. Bob you did a great job with the gumbo and the red beans and rice. Then the boudin balls were as close to heavenly as I have ever stuck into my mouth. Joe the sausage again was pure goodness. Thanks for some for the road too. I also have to give a big shout out to Todd with a-maze product for all the goodies. I will use them very soon. Like in a couple of hours.  Brian it was again it was nice for you to make the long voyage. I had a great time cooking and visiting with everyone and again a HUGE THANK YOU to Jerry and Karen.
 
OK THEN... I'll begin with a BIG "THANK YOU" to Miss Karen and Jerry... you two are truly a gift from above... To allow all who attend this wonderful gathering to come in and invade your privacy for a weekend is truly a blessing ... so again, "THANK YOU"

Thanks to everyone who made my wife Vicki feel right at home. See.... I do have a wife. She really enjoyed herself....

Joe
 
We made it back to Big B.R, after having pull over and sit out a couple of storms, 

 A big Thanks to Jerry n Karen for opening u their property and their home for us.

 Everything i ate was fantastic. Most of the stuff i drank was as well.

 I guess next year i need to bring more boudin for the balls . 

 Thanks to all who came and enjoyed themselves. 

   Sherrie says thanks to all that pitched in and helped as she was not able to do as much as she wanted this year.

Joe thank's for the sausage , it will be enjoyed 

 Tim thanks for the rye it will be enjoyed also. (just not w/ the sausage)

To whomever made the cold black eyed pea salad, It is great heated up!!!

If i missed anyone .Please charge it to my head and not my heart,
 
Bob.. tell Sherrie that that's not why we like her to come (to work)... we were all more than happy that she (and you) were able to be there... If she doesn't like it.. we will not let her do anything next year... :biggrin:
