How Did You Spend Veteran's Day?

I spent my Veteran's Day cooking lunch at @Owossoegger 's place.  He's my dealer and decided to cook for his employees and I thought it would be fun.  It's been a while since I've seen him.  I only have two pix because I forgot the memory card in the camera and the static memory could only fit two.  The first is Kevin cooking some chicken.  The second photo is the Sweet & Spicy Chicken Wings (AKA Sriracha & Honey Chicken Wings) I cooked on my small.  It was all great.  Thanks Kevin!  I had a great time!

    Me and nine of my CPO buddies hit up Fogo de Chao's in Balitimore for a red meat feast for lunch. I'm currently in the midst of a food coma. Oh yeah, there's a pot of Spicy Calabrese-Style Pork Ragù simmering on the stove waiting a pound of rigatoni.

    Went to the cemetery & saw my Dad & Grandpa.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

  • My town placed banners up on "Front Street" last Veterans Day of local residents serving, and our eldest son was one of the first banners placed for this program.  

    He is an MP in the US Army, presently stationed at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO.

    Today, we are to receive his banner at a ceremony beginning at sundown, and unfortunately he can't be there to join us, but he will be in spirit. 

     It will be rolled-up, and saved for him to have when he has a family of his own.


    When I'm not Eggin', I'm scootin'   Eggin' and 'cueing from Temecula Ca; an hour from San Diego, an hour and five minutes from Palm Springs, and an hour and a half from Los Angeles (yeah, right. With THAT traffic?)
  • We went to the mall this afternoon and Elaine visited with Santa.  No lines or waiting.  I loved it!

  • Had to work, but made damn sure to call and thank Lt. Col Robert G Spaight who flew 52 missions from Watton, England over Europe , mainly in a B-17 called Flak Dodger but also in an RAF De Havilland Mosquito. Thanks Dad and everyone else who put it all on the line,
  • @fred19flintstone, it was fun today. Thanks for coming up. The guys loved your wings. And that Santa clause you saw that's the one I was talking about. He's the real deal for sure. Oh and your part came in about the time you got home!
  • I was driving home from Surprise, AZ. and stayed overnight in Amarillo, TX. So I spent the day in the drivers seat of my Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab with my lovely bride of 44 years as of Nov. 8th. Was a great ride.

    Today was my first VD as an actual veteran (12 years active duty, 14 years Reserves, retired last year).  
    Intended to go to Einstein's for a free bagel this morning, but still had some green chile in the pot so I made huevos rancheros instead, yum!  Had a free lunch at Olive Garden; my waiter mentioned he was one of the only two vets at that particular restaurant and he had to work, when he brought me my check he was smiling, they gave him the rest of the day off; I paid $1.75 for the iced tea and left him a $5 tip.  
    Every six months I "swap" my two vehicles, drive the pickup in the winter and the convertible in the summer; took both to the car wash and got a few bucks off the first vehicle too for VD!  Thoroughly cleaned/swept the carport before reparking everything (guaranteeing a strong windstorm tonight).  Washed both bikes, winterized the sport bike.  Forgot to get my free haircut (and I need one right now).  Picked some more apples (bumper crop this year) and am now vegging.
    Good day!

    During the morning helped serve nearly 400 veterans and currently enlisted men and women breakfast (no egging just regular flattop grill at work). This veterans day also fell on my father-in-laws birthday who has been gone for 17 years. (I never had the privilege of meeting him as I met my wife 15 years ago) He served in Vietnam.  Unfortunately visiting his grave was not an option today so had my eight year old write him a birthday card and attached it to some balloons and released them to get the card to "heaven" before making dinner. 

    God bless the service men and women and their families who sacrifice so much to protect what so many take for granted.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    He is the real deal!  If you have a job out this way, that would be great to arrange a meet with your guys someplace.  If not, I'll figure a way to pick up the firebox in a week or so.  I can see that warehouse space is at a premium for you!

  • Thank you to all who served.  Thinking today of my father, Lewis McClain who was in the Army at Ft Carson in Colorado Springs back in the mid 1950's.  He passed away 20 years ago in August.  Thank you for making me into the man that I am today.

    Watched two of the worst teams in the NFL duke it out for the battle of FL.  My bucs won, likely their only win of the year.  Best part of the day was the pre game tailgait.  Brought my small BGE and cooked up some sausage and peppers and soy/ginger snook filets. 

    Lots of patriotic tributes at the game....  Great job on that Bucs.  Now if you can get a decent coach and team on the field we will be ok.

  • Like a good Canadian boy I shuffled Gabriella off to Buffalo for a whirlwind shopping trip.  Sales girl was confused when I wouldn't speak at 11:00.  Rest of the mall kept shopping.  Years ago in northern Quebec, the entire mall stopped at 11, even the damn muzak.  The way it should be.
