A Darn Near Perfect Weekend

Eric came in Thursday night. Unfortunately I couldn't take any time off, but Joe could. So on Friday, Joe and Eric did some major shopping for the weekend's festivities (bravo, boys!). When I got home on Friday evening, after a very long week, I was faced with this...

...and this...
These were actually taken on Saturday (I think), but you get the gist. We didn't do much but porch-sit all weekend. And on Saturday, while the boys were out at the Stormville Flea Market, I had this view...

...and this view (thanks to Joe)...

...while I was doing this...

Later on that night, our buddy Russ came over, but not before the two Awesome Engineers rigged up the dart board. We had a test-run of the grills (with sausages!) and played lots of darts.

Joe got up at 5am the next morning to put the rubbed pork into a low-heat oven. By about 9am, you can guess what my whole house smelled like...

Eric and Joe, or Chicken Master and Pork Master...

It was mentioned several times this weekend - for this reason alone I couldn't become a full-fledged vegetarian. I loves me some barbecue...

Chickens gettin' toasty and smokey and yummmmmmy...

If you can believe it, these are the leftovers. We could feed another 10 people. Wanna come over and have some good ol' smoked meat? :)

Good thing it freezes well.

What a lovely, wonderful weekend with our dear friend. We had other folks over for the 'Cue fest, but time spent with Eric was much overdue. We didn't do much outside of sitting on the porch, eating, and playing darts, but it was a darn-near perfect weekend. Hope you all had a little perfection this weekend as well.

If you girls are nice to me, we could do it all over again in October...I wouldn't mind busting out the grill again :-)

You put some shrimp shish-ka-bobs on there and DUDE, I will so be there!

Oh. Wait. I'm going to be there anyway. Hee.

But yes, we will be nice to you! Nice includes bottom-pinching, right? Right? Hello? Is this thing on...?

BBQ and bottom pinching! I've always been a (pulled) pork butt gal, myself, so that all goes hand-in-hand, now, doesn't it?!

Joe W said...

Pinch away, girlies... that is if you can find one to actually pinch.

Pulled pork & bottom pinching. Sounds like a fine blog title, doesn't it?

Just to bring it all back to topic - it was just about a darn near perfect weekend. I keep meaning to put an entry in my own blog, but I'm almost at a loss for words to describe how awesome it is to have friends that are so strong and great that you can go for a few years of not seeing them face-to-face, but the instant you see them, it's like you only saw them yesterday. I'm a lucky man to count folks like you among my friends!
