Can't say thanks enough for the invite. I had a farkin' fantastic time, and ate way too much, a true sign of great food! I'll second what Ray (Silverfinger) said about your friends. It was a great crowd and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone. Putting a face to the name of the fellow Brethren was cool too. Wish I could have conversed with some more than I did. Oh well, next time, I guess.
What can I say about the pig that hasn't already been said. It was PERFECT, period! You could not have made it any better. All the food, and there was a lot, was extremely good. Your setup made me jealous. Wish I had more space. Thanks for the kind words in the OP. Have a Happy New Year. Hope to be able to get together again soon.
