I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, I know I sure did.
Having five days off without any Chili Cook Offs made it where I was able to get a lot of things done around the house. It seams like forever since the last time I was able to do some routine maintenance and cross out some of the nagging items that have been like a monkey on my back, taunting me every time I walked outside.
Even though I spent most of the time working around the house, I still found time have a little fun. The oldest daughter was up from A&M and she just started a new adventure selling Mary Kay. She is looking for a way to supplement her income and drop her hours at work so she will have more time to study and I am all for that.
The wife and I support our kids in everything they do. We give them our two cents and we go from there. If she was selling dog crap in a bag then we would do whatever we needed to help her out.
She asked if she could host a Mary Kay party here at the house while she was up. Of course I said yes and that I would help with whatever she needed to make it a success.
We decorated everything up in Pink and really put on a show. The whole house was girlyfied by the time it all done.
It was a lot of food but having around forty friends and family show up made it all worth it.
Yup, that's me sitting by the smoker.
With Gorge Jones playing in the background, all the guys sat around outside and cooked, spited, cussed and drank.
(Good times right there)
The middle daughter came out to give ol' dad a hand at basting the chickens. You can't see it in this picture, but she was bare footed out there doing this. Bunch of hillbillies.
The wife did a great job in the house playing bartender and keeping all the women's Mason Jars full of margaritas. There was some hooting and hollering going on in there and I had to check and make sure they didn't hire a male stripper or something. From the sounds of it, they had a great time and I am sure the Jose Cuervo had something to do with as well.
Thanks to all that came out in support of the Girl. I owe you all one for this,
So there you go, for you real manly men out there that are too cool or macho to do a Mary Kay party just remember, all you have to do is redneck it up a little.
