    Wow - six months!! Welcome back.  I know it must be great to sleep in your own bed without nurses waking you up and beepers going off, etc.  Time to get that rotisserie spinning.

    Thanks to all for your kind comments. I can't figure out how to reply to each individual comment, so this will have to do. Hubby is taking to instructions very well on how to use the egg. It was one of the things I really missed. Just a bit of advice. Take care of your health. You never know when a bug like e-coli will move in.

    Dang but you are back and that's what counts.  Hopefully you were at least minimally able to check-in on this place or you are waaaay behind on the "What are you doing" thread.
    BTW- @The_Buffalo has rolled in with some forum guidance located on page 3 of this thread:  (The guidance should be a forum sticky but...)

    RE: What causes a thread to get killed?? 

    Forum shenanigans (especially on Friday PM) have changed  to say the least.  But we are all continuing to graze on the Buffalo's rangeland.

    Thanks guys. @caliking, they did take a few pics, but I figured it was for the coroner, I can laugh about that now. I saw a lot of white coats, but his wasn't one of them.
