Hard to believe but a week has passed since I pulled into MKM and MKD's driveway and began a wonderful weekend of great fellowship, great music and great eats. As always, Jim and Amy were perfect hosts. Their BYG is no place for a vegan - every meal included some form of pork they get from a local butcher. Saturday morning's home-made biscuits and sausage gravy with bits of bacon in it was the best I ever had. And Saturday afternoon's pork butt barbecue with home-made potato salad and all the trimmings -Wow! It was Cris's and Uncle Joe's birthday so of course there was cake too.
It seems that Jim, Zurf, Robert (aka "Topdawg" or "da Judge") and I all have a taste for Kentucky bourbon so during the weekend there were several pauses to salute another " dead soldier" (empty bourbon bottle) as it was given a burial in the trash can.
Oh, and did I mention there was music? I logged somewhere around 12 hours in the "circle" over the weekend. MKM, MKD, Uncle Joe, Topdawg, JoeyJoeyJoey, Zurf and I took turns and were occasionally joined by MKM,MKD and JJJ's offspring. We played 'til after midnight Friday and after 3 AM Saturday night. I headed home Sunday so I could help Jennifer with some projects. I took a "scenic" route so it took a little over 10 hours, but I still had a smile on my face when I walked into my house.
