I really missed the roast.  It sounds like all had a good time. 

Jeff, you and Tammy are gracious hosts and very giving people.

Hey, since I wasn't there this year someone else will have to start the "create-a-caption" thread ;D

Well, that only leaves the Northerly Northern to be spoken about :).  Where I was this weekend felt real Northerly Northern to me ;D.  But, it was very nice, I must say 8).

BTW Tim1234, the Boss has a great caption pic that he took Sunday morning.  I am sure that he remembers which one it is.

Oh absolutely, without a doubt!  In fact, I wouldn't mind spending my summers up there.  It's supposed to be upper 90s with high humididity here tomorrow, with heat index in triple digits. :o  Spring and Fall are deeelightful around here, but Summer and Winter pretty much stink.  Maybe N. Zealand in Winter and the YouPee in Summer would be a good arrangement, eh?

The PiggyRoast is such a great event, maybe Jeff should do it twice a year, like August and Febbiewary? ;D :D

I've been called all sorts of birds, mostly odd, strange, and rare, but never Sun...at least until now.  Wonder why that is? ??? ::)

Pasbuild was the winner of the guess the number of pine cones  spruce cones in the plastic pig, but I was the second place winner and received a prototype Logrite sawbuck. It seems to be well made and very sturdy. I like the center supports so the last short section of the log will be held while cutting. It folds and can easly be carried with one hand while the other hand carries the chainsaw. I tried it out today and it worked well. Thanks Logrite for donating the sawbuck. 8)
Now if Keven would make a wooden insert for the top to convert it to a little table top, then you could put the chainsaw on it and do maintanence. ;) ;D

That sawbuck is pretty DanG cool! Might need a light spring loaded chain around the log for the last piece.

It looks like a very handy tool.  I admired it longingly, but alas, I did not have the Luck-of-the-Pigman that day :(.

Danny, I have you know I was joking about the guessing part. I actually used caculus, but I am a little rusty with my calculus is why pasbuild won. ;D

Well, I just get back from the energy show in Phoenix and boy would have liked to be at the roast instead of that 112 degree heat.  I know, I know, it's the humidity not the heat.  But, I ready did miss not being with you guys.

I was a BIG WINNER at this years pig roast for many reasons, I got two days off work by takin the boss with me ;D I got to see some old friends and meet some new ones 8) ate my fill of some delicious food including deep fried double stuffed Oreo cookies  sketti_1   won me a dandy little chain saw thanks to Eggimann and Truck Parts City and another special prize.





This Maple set was crafted by the renowned artistic duo of TURN & BURN



As you can see the scene is of a Maple syrup operation done in great detail. This gift is not only very special because of the artist but also the man honored in the art work



Nailhead (Pat Johnson) was a good friend and I'm not ashamed to say I puddled up a bit when presented with this gift, THANKS guys.

TURN = Steve Beecraft
BURN = Jeff Brokaw
If it can't be nailed or glued then screw it
