Had a great time with guys over, it helped to compensate for not having the kids home.
First time with all the kids out of the nest. But now they have good jobs outside of El Paso something we worked hard for getting them the education so they could upgrade where they live.
Do not get me wrong home will always be home but this city is overrun with poor city and county government. Which will always keeps it a third rate city, if the houses were not paid for and taxes reasonabale (cost of living) we would move also.
But the real bummer after the feast are the 8 loads of dishes that are just about done.
Will most likely rinse and repeat at Christmas. Two of the guys that were here are planning on it unless they get leave, got to believe they got a couple of buddies to join us.
