    Hmmm. I sent in my request for membership to this thread - is there a higher level of approval I need to seek? Does the Poobah entertain requests on this thread? *anxiously awaiting the verdict*

    While I'm waiting, I think I can buy another couple tons of pellets. Just in case . . .

    So is Eric officially out of the Pellet Pig approval loop? I was waiting for his acerbic, yet entertaining judgment.

    Wow, I had to look that word up.

    a⋅cer⋅bic   /əˈsɜrbɪk/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [uh-sur-bik]

    –adjective 1. sour or astringent in taste: Lemon juice is acerbic.
    2. harsh or severe, as of temper or expression: acerbic criticism.


    Brought a smile to my face. I have been called a lot of things (somethings had a one finger wave attached) but this is a first.

    Thanks
    Eric

    6 ton in various sheds spread around the yard purchased in June. (delivered but unloaded with backhoe below)
    2 Englander stoves; 55-SHP25 & 55-SHP10
    Move them around with a Ford 750 Backhoe with forklift attachment.

    Does the backhoe get an honorable mention???

    I move that the first meeting of the pellet pigs be scheduled around either waterfowl, turkey or deer season and a minimum of a 12 pack be brought (obviously a rack of ribs as well) and I also move that anyone using a construction sized backhoe gets in the meeting with only the 12 pack (no Shaeffers!!!). ** Also, anyone from Arkansas gets priority on the waterfowl dates.**

    Eric, since you are VP of the Pellet Pigs (but not Treasurer :mad: ), and overseer of the pigpen, I think you need to put him on double secret pellet pig probation.

    Okay, Okay let the Schaeffers in... But if Scaeffers is brought, then ribs must also come along.

    No Schaeffers period

    Other than that....

    This is the line________

    This is where you are X

    Get the hint? You crossed the line.

    Punishment has been determined and set down as follows.
    For the calender year of 2009 you will have to wash the pig pen daily. That is not just a light hosing but a good scrubbing. Get to work

    HEY! take it easy there Tink....I grew up on Rheingold.....it's good brew (and they started making it again a few years ago). And Tony Stewart likes Schlitz, so that's good enough for me.
