    Electricity is not my friend. :hide As a kid I was seining minnows for bait. Went under a cattle fence. Farmer had weighted hot wire with rocks (wired on). I'm in the water, back hits the wired rock, wonderfully grounded, color me slammed into the water, back singed and respect for electricity engendered.

    After pulling me out, friends busily scooped stunned fish off of the water.

    Believe that, and you can have some of this freshly brewed coffee. :lol:

    I have drank all my coffee, now I'll start on yours. DH was supposed to smoke the bacon today, but came down with a bodacious cold, sore throat, achy all over SUPER BUG. It is cold, going to 24 degrees tonight, but that darn bacon is taking up space in the refrigerator and I need it out. Guess I'll go do it. Now that I have publically stated it, I HAVE to. LOL

    @Baymule, be nice to DH. You know we guys have more pain sensors so colds are harder on us.

    They do - it's Nature's way of trying to counteract the "Hey, guys, watch this" gene.:lol:

    @Baymule - if your hubby has the cold we've been dealing with, he has my sympathies. 2 weeks and still hacking my lungs up.:he

    We have some colds and respiratory stuff going around these parts, but there is also a stomach bug running rampant, hitting abt 1/2 the population. Nasty bug too.

    When I was the Youth and Family Minister at a small town church, sugar cream pie was my and the senior minister's favorite pie. Now, the senior minister was a little bit younger than I because of my late start getting into Ministry, but that's another story. We were good friends, and worked well together.

    The ladies of the congregation liked knowing our favorite pies so they could bring one in to us from time to time. They said it made it so much easier that they could just make 2 of the same kind to bring in to each of us.

    I have come to find out that a lot of folks outside of Indiana and maybe the Pennsylvania Deutch are not very familiar with sugar cream pie. If they are in other states, they have ties to Indiana and Pennyslvania or have ancestry here.

    Interesting enough, the same goes for playing Euchre, which goes well with eating sugar cream pie.
