I'm in. We have leg of lamb in the freezer and some lamb chops. No need to save your shanks, With Grace. I'll bring a brownie pudding - Stan, it's a rich heavy chocolate warm dessert that predates those molten chocolate desserts by a half-century, should suit the bill for a heavy choc dessert!
Lots of great pictures and stories on here in the last day or so. I have to say, Celeste, that my husband must be related to Stan as well. Year before last I was griping that I wanted a small push mower from walmart for trimming the yard (I like to mow but hate to trim with a riding mower, as I've never learned to be good with it). Instead, I got a JD riding mower with cupholder. Love it, but it's kind of an odd birthday present for a girl! Still don't have an easy way to trim so he has to use the weed eater after I mow. It works out okay, though, since he says I look cute on the mower (and the tractor/brush hog, too). He also thought I looked cute with a tool belt strapped around my waist on top of the barn roof when we were building it...and cleaning the car... and wait, I think I see a pattern here!
