Today, we will be having our
get together, with all the children and grandchildren.
I've got the turkey in the oven. I know that he was supposed to be smoked, but between the cold temps and
hubby hurting his ankle, which I am sure you know was all my fault, we decided to roast him in the oven, instead.

and walked away.
You see, my 'little' son in law
is 6ft 7 inches and at that time a good 260 pounds.
Guess she didn't want to arm wrestle him over that
