    Thanks for all the Birthday wishes!! It seems that I was the victim of a well planned and executed surprize birthday party on Saturday. The Bride let me sleep in late (turned off the alarm clock) and once I launched myself out of bed in a panic (I had planned on doing a brisket smoke), she promptly to me out for breakfast and then sent me to meet the son-in-law and grandson at car show. Then I went on a wild goose chase to find the youngest son shoes for school and then into the city to pick up a family friend that "just happened to come into town" (yeah, she was in on it too).
    It was 6:00 pm by time I got back home on Saturday and Sunday was a day visiting family and friends that weren't able to make it to Saturday's party. Looks like I'm going to have to wait until I'm on vacation at the next week to do that brisket. Sat. the 26th is out since we have been invited to a pig roast (I'll have to take along the digital camera and post some pics of the event).
