All told, around 75, but at any one time ??? Still, a good sized
crowd. Bigger than the New Years party, and this time no one puked.

Thanks. Actually, 5 pigs died for the ribs that were served. And I
still only tasted 2 ribs!

Wow! I don't remember that one! That'll teach me to drink at my own
BBQ. Actually, between the 10+ cases of beer & cider, the vodka
watermelon, scotch, jello shots, etc., I'm surprised I remember as
much as I do. I missed my wife talking about diloes? :-(

Thanks :) Master of Meat & my own domain (obviously); hell of a title.
Thanks, also, to all the FoRKers/MITers/W3Cers who showed up and made
it such a fun time :)
