Frazzled nerves and ZOOKIN\' 2k1dinner info
First off, I need to explain what is happening to me so no one thinks I'm slacking.
If you were around last Septemeber and remember, my house was robbed after I had returned from my Florida vacation. The only things stolen were my rifles, including my milled AK-47. Both the state police and me knew it had to be someone who knew me. IT was very unsettling, but I tried to put it behind me.
That is until the weekend before last. That is when I found out that a past "friend" was the thief. I won't bore you with the how and why, but he was arrested on Class D Felony B&E, Possession of Stolen Firearms, Sale of Stolen Firearms, amongst others. He posted bail ($45,000) and is out.
I have an Order of Protection against him. However, I've learned that he is trying to find me to "talk things out", but he has a loaded rifle in his car and is on heavy narcotics (he has terminal Crone's disease). The police have been unable to track him down.
So needless to say, I'm walking on pins and needles. Truly afraid for my family's lives and my own. Not a good scene. So I've been a little behind with everything I'm trying to do as I try to spend as little time at home.
Now that that is explained, I just got off the phone with Outlook Farms (the caterer) regarding the BBQ/Pig Roast dinner. Because many responded that they don't like/eat roast pig, I'm shooting for the "Mixed Grill". Here's the details:
Slow cooked pulled pork
Homemade sweet & hot Sausage
Meaty Country Style Ribs
Dry Rub Spiced Ribs
BBQ Chicken Breast
SIDES (We need to pre-select 3 items)
Homemade baked beans
Corn on the Cob
This also includes the BBQ sauce, condiments, napkins, utensils and plates. The only thing not included are the beverages and cups. I figure each will have their own (pop, barley pop, Glenfiddich, etc.)
The cost is $17/head. Unfortunately, there is no kid price. The flyer says "all meals subject to 5% sales tax", I check to see what they mean.
I need to get an idea if this can float. If so, we need to move quickly. I would like to see it happen. It would be nice to spend the entire Saturday wheelin' knowing someone else will be making us a very large nice dinner when we return to the campground.
I'll try to send out an email to all the attendees tonite.
