We have 7 layer dip too, Briar. We also have crab cakes, a crock pot full of my chili, and I just fried up 56 wings with 5 different sauces to choose from. Gonna have to space all this out!

No drinkers. Well, no one except my dad.

Here's my fryer setup today:

Enjoy everyone....lovely to hear you sounding happy Briar!

Arbor ~ re the parenting forum. I doubt you will get better advice or understanding anywhere than you can get from our awesome Octsober parents. Seriously wonderful parents, all of you. s

And BD ~ that is so lovely of you. All around. I hope your mother appreciates it.

No idea how hot it is in QLD right now, hoping Dee isn't cooking up there.

Good morning darling Leigh and all of you. ♥

Wow! Quite the looker you are Briar! (Said in a most big brotherly way ) Lovely. And those socks!

Good morning V!

I've never fried wings Arbor. And snow around the cooker! Glad you've got a little help with the boys this evening. Dang I'd love to dive into some of that food y'all have described.

I hope your day has gone well BD!

Our Sober Bowl team is on track today!!!

Nice candid shot there Briar!

Had the cooker in my boys throw away plastic pool, Mark. Didn't want to get any oil on my nice deck. My dads idea to toss the snow around it. The plastic was getting a little soft.

I had to install fencing around the pool area and that's where the tulips are....so no deer. Otherwise would be a problem.


Great idea on the pool to protect your deck Arbor. Deep frying is a splattery job.

Perfect place to plant tulips, Mark!!!!! They are such gorgeous flowers.

Have you ever looked into the story of the history of the tulip and its various types; it's quite an interesting story.

I don't know much about them Leigh.....I'll check that out. I bet I'll be the only guy in the nation watching football and reading about the history of tulips!

Yay-I guessed it! Good thinking Arbor. Have fun all-don't even know who's playing-no super bowl food here-too stuffed from lunch. My SIL gave my Mom flowers-a beautiful, large arrangement. My Mom HATES flowers. When I took her back, I said "let me put these in one of the common areas for you." The other residents thought she was so wonderful to share her gift.
