*EDIT - I should mention that The Targo gave me all of this information. And that, I'm pretty sure he only put Ribfest in there because I'm beyond yacktastically opposed to meat on a bone. In fact, I'm gagging a little writing about that. Wings? They look like elbows. Legs and ribs? Yup that's exactly what they look like. Boneless chicken breast? It looks like nothing but good eats. It makes me wonder how I survived two years in Memphis with this issue.

Hahaha. So how does the Targo feel about being listed AFTER the cats??

I will try to do something for next weekend too. Unfortunately, I will be out of town for Father's Day. Bums me out. Despite that, there should be a lot of stuff going on.

Hi Nogy! I can't believe you signed in as "michelle." I was almost like "who?"

I have a friend coming into town either Thursday night or Friday night for dinner, but otherwise next week is totally open!

Email me at njpeters23@gmail.com and let's definitely set something up!
