My Top Ten List Of What I Want For Christmas

10. World Peace-Not highest on the list however fighting Jihadism take a while

9. A trip to Disneyland- Where else do you want to be for Christmas

8. Shoes that don't hurt my feet- Some times these boots weren't made for walking

7. A pilots license - To fly amongst the birds and float among hot air politicians

6. Laser eye surgery- I hate wearing glasses

5. A Republican in the White House- 2009

4. A Sleep Number Bed- "No more sleepless nights" that's what the commercial says

3. An IPod that is voice activated and I don't have to pay for down loads- hey a guy can dream!

2. A Six Pack instead of a hogs head- You don't get this six pack at the liquor store.

1. An official Red Ryder carbine action two-hundred shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time- But you'll shoot your eye out kid!

Merry Christmas to all.

Eureka I Found It!  

Sunday, December 16, 2007

I finally found a web site that can teach me how to smoke meat like a pro. Your probably thinking at this time of year how can you think of smoking a pork butt or a brisket. Well one of my most favorite odors in the world is burning wood. I'm not talking Fire Marshall Bill burning I'm talking about that wonderful feeling you get when driving down the road in the winter and you smell something and realize that you have the car's air switched over to outside air not stale recirculated and then it dawns on you what you are smelling and it's a fire. My thoughts go back to my Dad taking my brother and me on Father Son camp outs or The Pilgrim Plantation in Plymouth,MA. Where you turn back the years to learn how the founding fathers of our nation and thoughts and beliefs that started this country. I like to think about that harsh crossing and how those brave souls were caught in a early season winter storm (somewhat like we just had) and ended up hundreds of miles away from where they were headed Virginia. Only to land on the desolate shores of Cape Cod at Province Town with nothing in sight but sand dunes.A glimpse across the bay however shows you a more promising site. Plymouth Harbor is a deep peaceful bay with plenty of fresh water, fish, game and fertile soil. Next time you want to discover your heritage go camping with nothing but a sleeping bag, food, matches and a frying pan. Make up some Johnny Cakes and swig some spring water. It's the American way!

Many of you are under the impression I am as fearless as Achilles and as strong as Hercules. Well I won't really try to deny those rumors but I have confession to make. Friday night while alone at home because the beloved Mrs. Smeag mad ea mad dash for Phoenix to see her Sis and the kids we had what you might call a rain shower. At 1am in the morning when your wide awake and can't sleep any better than a 12 yr old at summer camp. You call it "The Storm that Ate Thatcher". However luckily for me we had sweet repetitive Christmas music on the "Sounds of the Season" channel. After flipping that on I feel into a peaceful slumber. For those of you that read this and mock me well I can't stop you however I will tell you now one day you too will won't your blanky and teddy then you will curl up like a baby for that terrifying moment when you think all is lost and then realize it's just allot of wind.
