Hey folks - long time, no post, but I've been lurking and drooling over all the delicious food y'all are constantly putting out there. I love seeing all the old names, but it's also great seeing all the new ones.

I just wanted to share some really good news with you all, since so many of you are like my second family - just a few weeks ago, August 7, I became a very happily married man. My new wife, Mrs. TRex, is more than I could have ever asked for. I am truly blessed. What's more - she LOVES to cook, and we spend quite a bit of time in the kitchen together. In fact, we recently started a food blog . . . drum roll, shameless plug:

Anyway, this isn't about our blog, I just wanted to say hello and tell you folks that I miss you and love what you're doing in the forum, and I couldn't resist sharing my good news with you all.

All my best,

    Jason, Congrats to you and your bride. It was a pleasure to meet you and I still think your too young to be a legend with a technique named after you :laugh: :laugh:
    Best of luck

    She loves cooking, and she helps me "think outside the box" a bit - we have COMPLETELY different cooking styles, but somehow it seems to work, and it's a lot of fun.

    Very fortunate, indeed. :-)
  • TRexTRex Posts: 2,714
    I'm not that busy, :-) Will be poking my head in from time to time.
  • TRexTRex Posts: 2,714
    I would never forget my first love. I'll be around. :)
  • TRexTRex Posts: 2,714
    God willing, it will be a long, long time, indeed!
  • TRexTRex Posts: 2,714
    LOL, Wess. I bet you're even funnier in person - hope to find out some day. :silly:

    Congratulations to you and your new bride, Jason! You've put your best foot forward and we're happy for you. Here's a toast I rarely use except for special occasions : "May bad luck follow you both for the rest of your days.........but, never overtake you!!". Here's a shot from 2007 of the famous TRex and egret :

    LOL, Pat. Methinks this being hitched thing might start putting some extra weight around my mid-section - I'll be looking old in no time!!

    Hey Chris - hope all is well in Dizzy Land. Thanks for the congrats.

    We're trying to swing Eggtober - honestly, I haven't even looked to see the ticket situation - with the wedding and all I missed the pre-registration. I imagine it's sold out, but if we can find some extras I know my bride wants to come, so we'll see!


    P.S. - Had a great hanger steak in Maine but it still wasn't better than the one you cooked in the hotel parking lot back in, let's see - what was it - '06, maybe?
  • TRexTRex Posts: 2,714
    Thanks Toady - we're workin' on it!
