Mom, did I tell you that it's raining again? It rained most of the day until the party yesterday, so I was working hard to get coals started and keep them going to barbecue all of the chicken. I don't want one of those big gas-fired things, I like my little polluting charcoal burning smoker grill. All afternoon I started coals in a little chimney thing with newspaper in the bottom and coals on top by capping it with perforated foil to keep my coals from getting wet and going out. I barbecued five chickens that way, then put them in the fridge and baked them all before serving.

The kids were perfect and pulled off delivering their father to the party with great aplomb.

My house hasn't been this clean in months and I lost a couple of pounds with all of the work yesterday. And now that it is raining hard again today I predict the weight-loss regimen will continue with heavy-duty mowing for the next week or two.
