Simply Monday...



Not much to say...terrible day at work, it's hotter than a horny hooker in a whore factory, (muggy too) and we have to spend the next 3 hours in a hot bowling alley.

Go figure...

Weekend Report...

I'm a little behind this week...



Happy B-day to Leah & Dave.

Health issues-

Blondie, is OK. (scared the crap out of everybody) except me, long story...

My girls, have some or had some issues with a family member's health.

I haven't strangled anyone at work...yet. (thank God)

Julie, still has a pinched nerve in her neck and (she is) ready to strangle somebody because they won't put some pep in their step to schedule a MRI for her.

If anything else is going on...I've forgotten about it or I'll remember it later...

Oh...it finally rained...Woo-Hoo!!!

Simply Tuesday...



We served a pretty good spread this weekend...

Whole slab ribs
Chicken wings
Beef short ribs
Smoked beans
Corn on the cob
Mashed taters
Rolls



It was some fine eat'n...

I have my P's and Q's together when it comes to cooking. Everything else is a wash...well almost.

I've let the stupid nimrods at work get into my head so much the past two years, I've said screw it to a lot of things and have become bitter about a lot of things as well...that's not me.



I have always been laid back, easy going, a lovable grouch, that's what Julie loved about me when we met...but I feel here lately I have let her down because of my unending building anger and aggravations.

Work for the past few years, has brought out the dark side of me...

And I don't like it...

I don't like the darkness that my soul sometimes shows...I don't like things or people that try to brain wash me or try to make me conform to their twisted way of thinking. I rebel...I don't conform to society's control of thinking...or their twisted way of control...

I am me...

I will not conform nor bow down to you on your quest for pathetic servitude and superior stupidity.

That's your problem, not mine.

Sorry about your luck...

Working for the weekend...



Why do things change?

I found a lump charcoal that I liked (Nature-Glo) and got use to using it in the pit, but now where I bought it from...they don't carry it anymore. If it ain't one thing it's another.

It's like a pair of shoes...find some you like...wear them out...they don't make them anymore.



For me...it was hard adjusting from cooking with regular charcoal to cooking with lump charcoal.

Two different animals. I liked what I found...now...it ain't there.

Kiss my...



Oh well...I'll just have to try to find something else.

I'm just a pawn in this universe...screw me now...kiss me later...

Go figure...

I grilled Julie some leg quarters tonight because I haven't cooked for her or catered to her in awhile.

I love to cook...but I've just let too many things get into my head here lately and I've had no interest in cooking...which cooking has always been my pleasure and therapy for me for years...



I've always enjoyed cooking...

To me, it was and still is...relaxation and an excuse for me to drink a few cold ones.

Like I need an excuse to do that...

On a few post below...I have ranted about my job, the world, life in general and just plain old bullshit...

I won't do that here anymore. That's not what this blog is about.

I'll deal with life...I always have. I might not like what goes on in this world and I sometimes have very strong opinions...but I won't air them here anymore...

My readers like to know what's going on, in life and in love and in cooking. As far as everything else...I'll just keep my mouth shut and you'll just have to learn to read between the lines...



Me holding my P's & Q's...this should be fun...

Weekend Report...



My favorite beer company, has agreed to be bought up by some brewery from another planet after a hostile takeover attempt was launched against them.

I guess the only American owned beers left will be made by the micro brewers...

Business mechanics is not my forte, but if I didn't have a "for sale sign" on the door, who the hell are you to try and kick me out of the saddle and take over my business?

That's bullshit...

I guess that's why they call it a hostile takeover. If I had a barbecue business and had stock on the open market for that business and you tried to attempt to take it away from me in a hostile takeover...I would kick your sorry behind from here to Louisiana.

Don't try that with me...

I don't think that should be allowed. If you want a company, make an offer, if it is turned down and not for sale, walk away...

Don't go hostile and show your butt...

You will get an attitude from me right quick if you show your butt...and if you go hostile on me and try to take over my beer...

You my friend...have just seriously screwed up...

Simply Tuesday...

I could have been off this week and enjoyed myself but no...I had to volunteer to work.

Work can be a bitch most of the time, but we learn to deal with it in our own way. It is probably one of the most love hate relationships we will ever face in our lives...

To deal with this...takes a toll on your willpower, worth of self and limited ability to put up with BS...

Why can we not just go to work, make our money, "say see ya" and go home?

Society...does not work that way, nor do the bosses. They are God...you my friend are dirt beneath their thumb...your life...your family...you...are a number, a body, a thing to do their bidding...

Do as I say...

This has gotten under my skin in more ways than one. You want to be a long eared goofy bastard...

That's your problem, not mine.

Until you've done my job for 30 some years...don't try to tell me how to do it with your collage degree BS and threaten me with moving my job to China...I'll tell you to go for it and don't come back crying to me when your butt is hanging in the wind.

You don't have a clue...

That's whats wrong with this world today...

Nobody in the world of finance or business has a clue, except for this stupid southern hillbilly with only a high school education...

It's all about the top people.

The CEO
The Board
The Share holders
The LLC's
The Retirement funds
Wall Street

Everybody except...us...the working class.


God...let me win the lottery...

And get me out of this crazy hell hole called a world.

I see now...why you retired and left your son in charge. I don't blame you one bit...

I would have said the hell with it too...

Three day weekend...

Good to have three days off but...it messed with my brain clock.

I kept thinking Saturday was Sunday, and Sunday started out rough becauce my brain was like..."holy crap I'm late for work."

Dude...take a chill...

So today, it was back to the grind of have to work...have to pay taxs...

Bummer...dude...

Yeah...that's what I said dude.

Weekend Report...



I just realized, that I didn't take any pictures yesterday...

Not of the food, not of the people, nothing, nada, zip, zilch...

I must of brain farted because I always take pictures.

Oh well, I'll just have to invite everybody back over and do it again. Everything was cooked to perfection except the tri-tip, it was cooked right, but it was done before anything else was so I panned and wrapped it and stuck it over in the corner to stay warm and this little mistake over cooked it.

But...you learn from your mistakes, it was still edible, but overcooked.



Then came the smoked bologna...my neighbor Jim has wanted me to do one for him and I did...but I had to hold Steve O off in the process.

Steve saw that on the pit and said "What a hunk of meat."

And that started it all...I had to bodyguard that poor defenseless bologna. Steve never took his eagle eye off that bologna the rest of the night...

But Jim came to the rescue and carved off a thick slice for Steve to take home and he was happy and I was off the hook...I didn't have to guard it any longer.

Next time they come over I'll fix one exclusively for Steve O to call his very own..."Hunk of meat."



Thanks for the beer guys...

It's good to see my girls and their hubbies, but I can't believe I didn't take any pictures...



I'll just have to do it again.

Party at my house...

Working for the weekend...



My girls, (the original B.D's girls) and their hubbies are bound for this side of town tomorrow...

As 'Big Mama' roars to life and cooks some baby back ribs, beef short ribs, tri-tip, smoked beans and chicken wings.



I have some rub made up and will make up some sauce in the morning.

It will be a pleasure to spend time with my girls (Vicky & Tracy) because I don't get to see them much now a days and they are so much fun to be around and BS with and I love these lovely ladies unconditionally...

It should be great eats and great fun...


On another note:

Fat Tire beer has come to Hendersonville...



I'm picky about beer...but...this is a damn fine drinking beer that goes very well with any type of food. Right now, it comes in a 22 oz bomber (a mini quart, that don't hurt my feelings one bit...) I hope demand for it increases around here and it becomes a staple on the beer market...



So...have a safe 4th of July...and I'll see you on the Weekend Report.

Simply Tuesday...



As some of you have noticed from the posts below, I'm just slightly pissed at the world right now...

It has nothing to do with family, or any one individual, I'm just tired of stupidity...

My life has been in turmoil for the last two years because of my profession and it has taken its toll on me...

I have worked for a company for 31 years...I gave my life to this company right out of high school, and to get treated the way we have...is insane...

To be treated this way, by the collage educated idiots that have run this company into the ground is unheard of...

The public hates us...

The people in command make millions...while we (the line workers) are outcast for making a decent wage...

I'm sick to my soul of stupid people...I'm sick of butt wipes that think they are God...I'm sick of people that have a corner office and can't see the world because of the sky scrapers obstructing the view...

I'm sick of the arrogant upper echelons of society that think they are smarter than I am...

I'm just tired...

And fed up...

No, I won't go postal on anybody, but I will give them a good cussing...
