Gettin' My Ham Freak On

OK OK ~ so I put a bigassed bone-in ham in the oven about an hour ago ~ just basted it ~ will bake & baste for 4 hours slow & easy, then glaze (maple) for a final 20-30 minutes. On the docket: scalloped potato & ham casserole, ham & beans with cornbread, deviled ham salad, sliced ham for sandwiches, ham & beans, etc. On a side note ... I woke up this morning with NO hangover and then I thought of all them poor bastids at Winfield who are feelin' like crap right about now. Whooooboy, I don't miss that part about Winfield ~ sobreity rocks! Now ... pass the ham, please.

We Shall All Be Reunited

The Freight Hoppers ~ We Shall All Be Reunited

Where is now my father's family
That was here so long ago
Sitting 'round the kitchen fireside
Brightened by the ruddy glow

We shall all be reunited
In that land beyond the skies
Where there'll be no separation
No more parting, no more sighs

Some have gone to lands far distant
And with others made their home
Some upon the world of waters
All their lives have chose to roam


Some have gone from us forever
For with us they could not stay
They have all dispersed and wandered
Gone away, so far away


We shall meet beyond the river
In that land of pure delight
Where no sickness or no sorrow
Will our joys there ever blight

We shall all be reunited
In that land beyond the skies
Where there'll be no separation
No more parting, no more sighs
No more parting, no more sighs
