    I'm hoping for triple digits this time.

    For those interested, I live about 20 minutes out from DFW Airport. There is usually a 'Polkie Taxi Service' for these events and if there isn't, the 'Skipper's Taxi Service' will be in full effect if needed. I don't want anyone to have an excuse to miss this - October is when you want to come see me since that is when everyone else does.

    OK, so Lorenzo had to back out of this due to an overwhelming amount of orders that need to be completed, but Jessica from NSD will still be here.

    There will be brisket and beans for all as well as a few other things I'm sure. If you feel like bringing some grub, I won't turn it down. o:)

    Three setups done. Might get four total. Had some issues with the babysitters that limited my options since the kids will be here. All I can say is these Italians do it right.
