To answer Beau's question, it's hard to pick a favorite pie. Pee-can, chocolate, coconut, are the first that come to mind. Cherry, apple and key lime come to mind, as well.

There. Did I cover everything?

Wait a minute...

Are you all bringing me pies so you can eat my chickens???

I will shut the gate and call the sheriff because there is a No Trespassing sign on it. You can slide the pies under the barbed wire fence and leave. Or, you can come to dinner and eat beef. After all, it's what's for dinner.

Forgot to say that the building by the horse trailer is The Mister's man shack.

My She Shed is much smaller.

Good Job, BJ!
I am pretty big on 0% financing. Maybe 1.9, if I'm am feeling generous. I have no debt to income. I pay cash or at the very least pay my credit cards off every month.I have never paid interest on a credit card in my entire life. Car salesmen love me! 20 years ago I walked into a dealer on a Sunday. I was wearing cutoffs, sandals and no shirt. Hair down to my shoulders. I pointed to a truck and said "I'll take that one". Dude looked at me like I was out of my mind. I said "Whatever, run my credit". I left with the truck. That was my '99 Chevy that I still own.

Never judge a book by its cover! That's my motto....

With the except of my home mortgage (minimal) and my rentals (less than minimal), I owe nobody nothin'. LOL

Bill G. (STJ!)

Edit to say: I raised my son the same way. If you can't pay for it.... Don't buy it. Sometimes credit comes in handy. But thats all it should be. Not a tool to leverage you into debts that you can't afford.

SP - you better have the WELCOME mat out for your friends.

Beau from Canada, will arrive with a case of real beer / not that watered down American stuff.
- one of my favorites was Alexander Keith's or Muskoka Moose Head...premium brands

Not all Canadians drink - mass produced Molson and/or Labatt.

PS - a dozen years ago, our son & Dad flew to Osaka, Japan...for the World Junior 9-Ball championships.
- for 6 days, all we consumed were Heineken
Imagine a 15 hour flight, to drink American beer...

Some of the salesman that use to visit me & our plant / purchased Canadian beer & took it home, with them.
- it was always a treat, for special occasions

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My favorite pie is Chocolate or Strawberry Cheese Cake.
But wife makes Pecan for our sons visits...num-num good.

Denny... Beef!?! I love a steak dinner. If you leave the neighbor's gate open, I am pretty good at dressing down a big critter. I'm thinking standing rib roast....

Preaching to the choir!

That is what the banks want.

Some customers take the deal and turn around and pay it off.

Then, they come back to me and buy another car. Doesn't matter to me if they finance with one of our lenders or not. I sold a car. That is my job. I am a low pressure salesperson.

So, I still can't sell anyone of you a car?

Okay. Here is the plan. Shhh, don't tell anyone. I will, accidentally, leave the gate open and lure a prime calf onto my property, brand it, and call it my own.

Then, you all, will have to give me instructions on when and what to feed it, until you all arrive to butcher it and give me enough time to tell me when to start cooking.

I was planning on cooking chili, spaghetti or lasagna

All, you all, want to do is eat my chickie babies.

^^ All good choices.

Top Prime Angus Beef - has to be aged 28 days, for the most flavor.
- so you got us for a month, shacked up at your place
(Beau. will run the JD and cut your grass & weeds, weekly...to earn my keep)
- while waiting for the steaks to cure

Crap! Now I am craving Blue Bell Rocky Road ice cream.

This pie/ice cream thread is torture.

The only downside is that a Duck, a Canuck and Colorado red neck chick have to travel to Oklahoma. BTW.... Where is Oklahoma again? Never mind, we'll find it. Don't forget to invite GJ.

No debt (not even mortgage)--but not much income these days either.

But I’ll never forget the time DH (now ex) and I walked into a high end furniture shop. Beater car, both of us about 21 years old, blue jeans (probably with holes in the knees), T-shirts (probably wrinkled). The sales clerks looked at each other...one shrugged (I guess they were taking turns and next customer in (us) was hers). She grudgingly asked us what we wanted. A solid cherrywood dresser. She walked us over to a small one near the entrance, told us a little about it and oh so casually flipped over the price tag, expecting us to our faces to fall and us to say “OMG, that’s way too high, we’re obviously out of place, sorry to bother you” or some such thing.

Should have seen her expression when we said “That’s nice, but we really wanted something bigger.”

I prefer Pralines and Cream Ice Cream.

I gather I’m way behind the conversation. Just got on; can’t keep up.

^^ NO Ford's for me / trust me when I say, NO practice needed.
- I was first put on a 30 HP tractor to steer it, pulling a wagon
- while grownups picked up field stones...I was only in Grade1
- I couldn't even reach the pedals...but throttle was on the dash

After all, you might want John to build you a BBQ cedar party deck, on the back of your house.

So, the property will be mowed, by YOU? I thought Beau was mowing.

I am confused.

Whose in my kitchen, again?

I cook a fairly mean chile rellenos (use Pueblo chiles, they’re hotter). And habanero cheese.

But my Indian cuisine is better.

Everybody just needs to move to OK and everything will be Okay...

Every one of this group will feed horses, dogs, cats, ferrets, donkeys, chickens, wall paper stripping, lawn duties, BARN raising, quilting instructions, etc.

Never mind, stay where you all are at!

30 years ago - wife and I needed new floors on our main floor.
- and shag rug in the hallway, living & dining room...was an eye sore
- cheap vinyl in the kitchen, even worse
The old house was a handyman special, and we gutted the floors.
- new plywood sub floors to start, to remove all the squeaks
- next a combination of new commercial carpet and Armstrong solarium (high end vinyl)

It took us a year to find a killer deal on the vinyl.
- always came back to one sample...it was $44/yard, while the $10 stuff looked cheap
- finally one day, we went to the next city over, and Sears had the exact same solarium on sale
- purchased it for $26/yard, got their best installer and it looked amazing

Months later went into the local store that never had a sale / their showroom had the same $44 flooring.
- wife asks for their best cleaner and she had a $20 rug to purchase
- the FM owner said: "what kind of floor do you have"
- wife said: "same as the one we're standing on"
- she said: "that floor is to expensive for you guys""
- we said: "we purchased this exact flooring from your competition & saved 1,000 bucks
- this identical floor is already installed, in our house"
- owner didn't know what to say...wife said: "keep your mat, we won't be back"
A few years later, she ran the flooring business into the ground.
- the 2 other flooring business in town said: "the old witch, was their best advertising
- she turned many customers into their direction"
