I've been lost and now...

I'm found. LOL

Sorry for being away so long. I had a lot of things to do. I've been trying to get the proverbial ducks in order for two things.

1. We had our first BBQ contest May 1 & 2 in Liberty Indiana. We had to get the trailer ready and buy supplies. You'd be surprised about all the things that needed stocking up, especially pellets. BTW we came in 14th out of 38. Not bad for our first outing of the year.

2. During the month of April I was busy visiting the pension board, human resources (personnel dept.) and various other assorted departments.

It is official, I'll be retired as of May 28th, 2010! I'll have 30 years and 2 months of service with the Cook County Sheriff's department. I figured that after 2 trips to the hospital and being sued once I shouldn't press my luck anymore. Its time to try and enjoy life.

Will I have more time to do BBQ contest? Maybe. The cost to do a contest isn't cheap. The Dudette will continue working for a little while but I look for her to "retire" after the first of the year.

My "honey do" list is growing, so I'll have lots to do in my spare time.

Once again sorry for the long delay. I'll have the marinade part up in a few days.

  1. Welcome to the grand family of no more work on the table, do it all under it. I retired 10 years ago and absolutely love it.
