This Little Piggie Cried Wee Wee Wee All The Way Home

My grandfather's party was a huge success, as usual. We had over 50 people attend (friends, family, neighbors, etc) and my aunt had even had t-shirts made saying something along the line of "I survived the 10th annual......" because really by Sunday most are feeling pretty crappy. Friday night is what we all call the pre-party. Immediate family come down and start helping by setting up tables, chairs, decorating, and so on but we usually stop around 6 or so and start the tunes, karaoke, dancing, and drinking. Normally I am out there with everyone else hammin' it up but old age got the best of me this year and I was sound asleep with the kids by 9 pm. Saturday was much better as we all sweat our asses off in the heat and had a brisket, sausage, and a variety of other foods for lunch/dinner and then the party started again that evening. I did much better and managed to hang out with the best of them, well until around 1 and then couldn't take any more. This year's get together included family quarrels (my brother can be a real ass) and I don't think he will be coming back next year. Oh well, less for me to have to worry about.

So, answering everyone question, yes we had a great time but I was thrilled to be back home in my own bed Sunday night. And I am super happy that it is only once a year.
