Good Bye To Michigan

It's the BBQ wife again. Although this has nothing to do with BBQ I just wanted to say that I made it out of Michigan just before the big snow storm. Thanks to a truck driver and packers that worked until 9:30pm Monday night I was able to leave town around 6:00am Tuesday Morning. Although Southern Michigan and Northern Ohio were a bit dicey all the rest was pretty calm besides rain. I arrived in Tennessee to visit with family to 50 degree weather. Unfortunately I brought some cold with me because we awoke to a chilly 15!! You Quers in Michigan stay save and warm.

My stress when we move is The BBQ Guy's cookers and his motorcycle. They were the last things on the truck and are wrapped all snug for the trip to Florida. Now they have to sit in storage until we find that perfect home for them. Although Brian is already in Florida waiting for my arrival I already sense that BBQ withdrawal is hitting him. I am sure it won't be long until he at least makes it to the contest so he can smell that smoke.

He will be back soon with more entries to help everyone get ready for the Spring Grill Season. I just have to get the computer to him. No personal computing on company time or machines you know.

To our Michigan Friends we Thank you for your hospitality. We enjoyed our time there and hope to stay in touch. To the BBQers out there when it is cold and snowy next year feel free to find a contest in Florida and come for a visit. I'd invite you this year but since we have no home as of now it would be a bit difficult to entertain.

I have to say that I'm going to miss the two of you at competitions up north. Those of you down south that get to compete against these 2, good luck, but at least you're getting 2 of the nicest people you could wish for at your competitions.

Thanks Kurt for your kind words. We will have to be on our best behavior to live up to your nice statement.
