The In-laws are Coming, The In-laws are Coming!

Run! Panic! Hide!

We've had a rash of visitors lately. Not sure why we're so popular all of a sudden but it's been fun. The Golden Girls love being in the spotlight. Now the In-laws will be here Monday for what they think will be a nice leisurely visit. Mwah, ha, ha, ha. Don't ever visit a work-in-progress homestead for more than a day if you know anything at all about anything, 'cause you WILL be put to work. I can hear the hammers banging and smell the bread baking already. Yep, next week I'll have a woman here who has baked homemade bread all her life. If you think I'll let her get away without full disclosure of her bread baking secrets you're crazy. Who knows, I may even video tape it for future reference.

Better you than me sister!

Years ago we bought my in-laws an answering machine for christmas and here's the message I recorded on it.
"Hello, you have reached the (insert last name) residence. (insert FIL name) and (insert MIL name) are tied up right now so please leave a message and they'll call you back as soon as I let them."

I thought it was funny....but no one else did.

Definetly watch and record the bread making. Enjoy the visit.
