LOL

Snow was in the air and we were grilling pork chops last night.
I say "we" -- I mean my husband was grilling and I was sipping wine and trying to tell him he was doing it wrong.

Reb said...

Kcinnova, yes, that is the only thing wrong with that joke....we grill all year round. ;)

Barbara Martin said...
