The only H.S. class reunion I went to was my 30th. Seeing how bad my fellow classmates have let themselves go made me feel great about myself.

... and those girls we used to date turned into little old ladies. 

 

I've never been to a class reunion. Considering my class was less than 100, ya never get a big turnout.

I'll leave it at that.

 

I-19 was closed all afternoon, yesterday. Dignitaries.... Veep, Gov and Senator. They should have taken a helicopter. They basically stopped all traffic between Mexico and Tucson during their visit to GreenValley [the Cat proving ground. Ya saw that on TV]. The news dinna bother to tell us not to try to travel N/S. Turned the trip to Tucson into a 3hr one-way.

i certainly wouldn’t wish it on anyone. 

actually, most of my fear is that i’ll contaminate something that someone else will touch, then get sick, and the thought of someone being hurt or sick because of me is pretty heavy. i’m less freaked out around beef; but, handling raw chicken -- forget about it.

Bought a package of Nathan's dogs ONCE!  Also on sale.  Pretty nasty imo. Chicken?  Nasty to deal with but I had great results with the last breasts I grilled.  Lil BBQ sauce then slathered in oldtimer's latest brew and left for a day or so...  Fantastic!  NO KETCHUP!

I dunno, the one recent widow who bought herself a nice pair of fake breast with the insurance money did not look like a little old lady.

Unfortunately she disliked me then and even more today it seemed 😉

I don't discriminate, I liked them both ways.

I miss the old  Emge Meats in Anderson, Indiana.

The plant was just down the street from my grandparents house.

The biggest snapping turtles I have ever seen lived in the White River directly behind the plant.

I can't deny liking "the little old ladies"... trips to the grocery can be fun.

Just a handful of keepers at my 50th reunion.  Ever notice how sometimes the lookers back then have faired the worse while some mousy ones blossomed?  That seems fair.  Ever think you would be checking out 70 year olds😑

 

Lunch out at a bar-b-q joint.  Had fried chicken, taters with gravy, and collards.  LF on the road again.

 

Stopped and bought blue cheese stuffed olives for martini night.  Still liking the Reyka okay.

I would venture to say that the girls think the same thing......

Went to my 25th many years ago.  It was so incredibly boring I left after a half hour.  It was a shame because I had found a really nice bottle of 1973 Cabernet that I had planned to share, but I never took it out of the car....

Only went to one reunion, it was an all boys school so it was the same bunch of clowns just older. Never went back, I kept in touch with friends anyway, did not bother with the rest so why bother, plus a bunch are dead now I would think.

Your right chicken is the worst, just be careful and don't allow anyone to lick the raw chicken. Been cooking inside and out for a long time now and no one has become sick, you just be careful not to cross contaminate anything with raw chicken.

Like if your grilling or smoking keep the chicken where it does not drip on foods that take much lower temps to be done. Inside only put raw chicken where it can not touch anything it shouldn't, and wash your hands after handling it.  They even say to NOT wash chicken anymore, it just makes the sink contaminated and does no good for the chicken. 

 

I bet you can easily be more careful than the average restaurant is.

I first read that and said it sounds like a song, then realized, must be getting down to the last few brain cells it seems, oh well.

Doable at almost anytime, 24 hours a day, the taco at least.

that's why I made note of the wife being gone. 

by "crank up", do you mean more than 1/2 volume?

is chicken safe to eat any more?  Sounds like prep for Fugu.

was that message by the Beef Counsel?
