    L. I. B. Welcome aboard Mr.Bones! Don't know how you snuck in here without me seein ya, but things happen. Are you any relation to that fella in the space movies & tv shows. As far as you contributing to the Pit, everything you do is welcome. I know with me there was more taking than giving.
    Sounds like you grew up just like my wife did, only she was a little further north, up in MN.
    Looking forward to your input. I know you will enjoy the ride.

I remember hearing stories of how my mom was raised, having an outhouse when she was young and they and my grandpa farming and raising everything they ate, milking cows, etc. Brought back some family memories. My dad was raised in town and they had the luxuries that some country folk in the early 50s didn't have. Anyway, glad you're here with us.

    Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos. This will help you learn your way around so you can get the best experience from our forum.

    Also, it's very important that you:
    1. Give us an email address you actually use. You can set or change your email on file with us by clicking your name in the upper-right, then User Settings, then the Notifications tab.
    2. Add the domain AmazingRibs.com to your email safe list. We NEVER spam! This is important to receive notices about your account, such as if you’re up for renewal or are ever drawn as our monthly Gold Medal Giveaway winner (we’d hate to have to pick another person because you don’t answer us)!



    Hope to hear & see more from you!
    Homework assignment duly completed and assimilated.

    Thanks for the welcome, and the assistance, Huskee!

    Took a bit before I seen yer post; I was busy nursin' some SRV, Howlin Wolf, Freddie King, and Muddy Waters out of one o' my Strats! Pickin an grinnin' definitely helps pass the time while watchin; the pit ;-). Coupled with a cold one (or two) from St. James's Gate, Dublin ;-)

    I'll do my utmost level best to not make excess work for the moderators, as I moderate on other sites, and understand what is entailed.

    I saved the URL to the homework assignment, for future reference,,, haven't got it all stuck permanent-like, in my headbone. Gimme lil' time, it'll settle in...

    I've always had a photographic memory, 's jus' that Kodak quit makin' film for it quite some years ago! ;-)

    Mind if I ask why we don't have any t-shirts, ball caps, BBQ aprons, etc. merchandise that boldly says: "What Would Meathead Do?"

    I know dang well we've all had those moments at the grill or smoker, with an audience waiting for their meal!!!

    I can whip up some graphics on the 'puter, if interested, and I ain't too proud to accept royalties, regardless of what you mighta heard about me :-) (I'd rather just do it as a contribution / payback for this great site's resources)

    I noticed that my name just keeps getting longer, and longer lol!

    When I was a wee barefoot lad, big enough to go out the door, I would drag home every hurt critter in the county (and beyond) and do my best to mend them up, with a good deal of success, btw.

    My Grandpa took note of that, and tol' me "Awwww, you's gwine ta be a 'Sawbones', now, ain'tchoo bwoy?" Hence, the nickname. It stuck.

    Time passed by, I got increasingly old, and other folks added on the Mr., perhaps out of deference, maybe sympathy, I dunno :-)

    But today, y'all tagged an ampersand on me since I been here jawin', so reckon now I'll have to go get my driver's license updated ;-)

    Best regards to you, and yours!

    It does make fine clothes, rope, etc., indeed. They should resume it's production, great natural resource. In the meanwhile, I think that Colorado has us covered, for the interim! ;-)

    Best regards, pleased to meet you!
