Well we pulled it off . For three weeks now , we have been planning this surprise retirement party for my wife .
We had a invitation to a friends birthday party starting at noon at one daughter's place and I was to have her there at 1:15 . So I said ,I don't want to be the first one there so I stalled around and around finally she said come on lets go and get this over with and it was about time, so we left . I had to chew on my tooth pick and keep my hand up to my mouth all the way over there so she wouldn't see me grinning .
As we drove in seen a son and she thought that was odd why was he there
then as we parked and she seen the next door neighbor and every body looking at her taking pictures it dawned on her it was her party . Total surprise ,,,
There over 80 friends and family there ,lots to eat and drink .
Had this pig enough to feed every one and then some .It was full of sauerkraut
and sausage .
Of course I'm in the dog house and get even time is coming but it was worth it to see the look on her face when we stepped out of the car .

That's a pineapple ring on it's tail or what's left of it . Also on it's ears and some in it's mouth with an apple.
It was delicious and very tender, They had put in equal to a big bowl of kraut and saugage in there .Which I liked as good as the pig .
I already know what my get even is with the wife
She's gonna say you want to go get a bit to eat some place and that place might be 500 + miles away . She'll have bags packed and some one to watch the place and do chores and we'll be gone for a while.
It's not if it will happen but when it will happen .

Great surprise for her, Al...nothing beats doing things for others, and good to know that so many care enough to make things work out like they did. Have a gooder, R.E.L.

Sounds like you did well my friend, it's hard to keep anything a surprise (if nuthin else some loudmouth relative will ask her for directions there) and that's a lotta good-looking pork too. :)
