It's those little snapshots of everyday life that give me hope for our future.

Found a brand new Ronco Rotisserie at a place called Savers that had all the original parts, every extra that came with mine. Tie back, thermometer, gloves, injector, skewers, accessories books and an extra diet manual, VHS tape (who still has those?) still in the bag yesterday. It's never been used just dusty. It's just like mine.

Couldn't pass up a $25.00 deal so I bought it. Going to give it to my sons best friend who loves my rotisserie chicken. He's been wanting one of his own forever. He's been busy slowly building up items for his kitchen. It's his First apartment. I'll clean it up today. Invite him over for a rotisserie chicken dinner tonight then give it to him after dinner.

Cuz' I'm nice like that Heh, right...

Munky.

Thrifty, lucky, and nice, too. What a Munky! Before you know it, being a Munky will replace being a Mensch.

You ARE nice like that! What a great find, and what a great idea to have him over for rotisserie chicken before giving it to him.
