    It

    Last night just as it started to rain I fired up the brush pile that I had in the field. It went up fast and because of the rain the sparks didn't go far at all. I then went back to the house and changed the water on the two country ham's that I'm getting ready to cook.

    Its Nov and its that time of year again. I have two 13 pound country ham's that I just washed and soaked in the sink. I now have them on the stove cooking. I think they will be ready to come out about or around 2:00pm today. Good thing to do on a rainy day.

    Amen There is nothing finer than good country ham. Not the fake stuff they try and pass off now but the real stuff Usually from one of the Mennonite farms in your area. That and a bunch of fresh home made rolls with real butter. Like you all the things my doctor says I can't have.

    Oh, this is just great. I am on a sort-of diet and i opened this thread : ) I have not had a good ham in ages. I suppose a trip to Taylor Meats wouldn't be a bad thing.This day finds me in the shop, treating all the fuel in my gas powered equipment and getting rid of the clutter.

    I like what you are doing much better! Will you adopt me?

    On those cold miserable days I spend some quality time with either Ms Spolar or Ms Ponsness. I am running a bit low on pistol fodder so the Dillon sisters (of which I have four) may get some attention too.

    I tried to juggle two girlfriends but they would not understand that I could love them both. In contrast, my bevy of reloaders has been supportive of fulfilling my various needs without drama.

    November cold? We have been in the 90's all week with shorts & t-shirts still the uniform of the day.

    Sorry to hear about your rain but I will have a bite of your ham when it's finished cooking.

    I started at about 8:30am and finished about 3:00pm. Put a coating of bread crum's, brown sugar and grounded clover on top of the ham's and put it in the oven for about 8 min. Yes I did try the small pieces that did happen to fall off the ham. Just right too. I will slice them up on Friday.

    Also I have to add to those who are in the same boat as I am. Yes I'm also on a diet and have lost 35 pounds. I didn't have any ham's last year to cook so I cooked two this year to make up for last year. LOL I also had high blood pressure because of salt but I HAD TO HAVE MY COUNRTY HAM. Sorry doc but I only have my ham once a year.
