Hello, Friends out in the Blog-o-Sphere,
Thanks again for joining me and sharing my adventures with your friends. As of my last post, I had 2,500 hits! Probably all the folks at Rick and Nick’s graduation, wanting to see what I wrote about them!!
Hey! I’m almost as famous as the Chewbacca Mom. Oh, wait, she got 130 million hits on YouTube in 4 days!! Maybe I’ll have to add some video clips! Too bad I didn’t have any from the trip I described in my last post with the 300-pound hog going down the mountain! LOL! Yeah, NOW I can laugh! Then I was crying and praying and seeing my life flash before my eyes!
I am actually talking to some more of the high school kids to plan some “In the Kitchen with Lucy” segments for the next progression of my saga! Continue reading “What’s Next?”
Did you ever have one of those terribly death-defying experiences when you’re afraid this is it! And you’re saying prayers as fast as you can and trying not to faint from freight??!!

An Old-Fashioned Pig Roast
Dan is married to my real estate friend Jan, who’ve I’ve written about before on this blog. They have twin sons graduating from high school this month, and since they both are great kids who each got a full scholarship, their parents wanted a graduation party they wouldn’t forget!

I have to say that the whole family was in on the planning and even the research! The boys dug up research via the internet on the best way to cook the hog. Dan grew up on the farm and asked many relatives about their recollections of prospering roasting a hog. I hadn’t been involved in a pig roast since my younger brother graduated high school back in the 20th century, so I did some research too! Continue reading “She’ll Be Coming Down the Mountain!”
As anyone who’s ever had a business can tell you there are two major problems: One is not enough growth, and the other is too much growth too soon!
Do ya remember in my last blog posting how I wrote how perfect my new BBQ Lucy’s Stand was? Well, I can’t even believe how the business took off and how quickly my “perfect Stand” became too small! I had to hire a couple of people to help me with preparing the BBQ sauces and to help with the customers in person. I did not think about that darn telephone! People were picking up our business cards, and a jar or two of my BBQ sauces as gifts and whoever received them wanted more!
Maybe it was the great packaging that made it a super gift idea! I had approached the teachers up at the local high school and asked if any of the kids in the graphics arts department like participate in a little contest to design my labels for my sauces. Well, that grew to needing stationery and business cards that match. And not one or two kids were interested, but five were! Continue reading “Growing Pains…”
