It's all about Cooking Chili and Family. It has been that way for a while now.
Candy, Jessie and myself just got back from a great two day chili cookoff in Durant OK. On top of that it was the new camper's maiden voyage. We had a really great time and the camper is just what we were looking for. It's like having a mobile apartment.
Saturday's cookoff was for the title of Southwest United States Champion. 153 cooks turned in, I walked with 23rd place. I was ecstatic, this was the fourth time we have cook this one and finally I walked.
I am so proud of the wife for walking and getting some more points. This is the best we have ever done at a huge cookoff. She works really hard at making the perfect pot of Texas Red and prides herself on the taste. Candy now needs only 2 more points to be qualified for the World Championship in November.You go girl!
Our next cookoff is in Lone Oak Texas in two weeks.
Now for the important thing. Tomorrow at 8:30 AM we will be Grandparents for the first time. Hannah is scheduled for little Rebecca's delivery by knife because even though she is due, she has not turned and has no plans to do so.
We will be at the hospital at 6:00 AM in support. She is so scared and our nerves are shot. I can figure no sleep tonight for any of us. After a long nine months little Rebecca will finally be here.
I will post pictures tomorrow afternoon if you would like me to.
Thanks for hanging in there,
