You break out the big ass bottle of Grey Goose, make dirty martinis & welcome Bellesouth

Nowdy sometime after we had several martinis last night I think I remember Belle agreeing to author some posts for us on slabbed. Belle is a yellowdog democrat like our friend Steve. I look forward to her posts and bet they’ll be both different in viewpoint and interesting.

Besides Belle we’d like to welcome those who clicked to us from the ABA Law Journal. Nowdy who wudda ever thunk it back in March? :-)

Nowdy makes a fantastic garlic/apricot stuffed pork tenderloin roulade. Along with the martinis that I mixed she served us a baby spinach and strawberry salad and potatoes. We visited late into the night. Belle hugged me twice. 😳 It ain’t just anybody than can say they’ve been hugged by an authentic southern Belle. 😉

And then up at 6 for a long long day. Say goodnight Gracie.
