Special Guest Star

I've got a mini-date (read:Jay'me is coming to our house for a covert operation to prepare for this weeks sushi event) so I'm taking the evening off from the blog.
Stop cheering Punks! Alright, I can still hear you. Come on now am I that bad? Wait, don't answer that.
So tonight, Scotty Too Hottie is making his blogging debut. Apparently he thinks he's better at this than I. We'll see about that....

Without further adieu.... Here's Scotty!


Is this thing on?

Hello everyone!

I just want to start off by saying that I definitely don't think I am better at this blogging thing than my wife...no way...just wait and see! How she does it I'll never know.

Quickly I'll move to my next topic...THANK YOU!!!!!!
Seriously, thank you, for all of your thoughts, prayers, wishes for wellness and just for letting me know that you are pulling for me. It's absolutely amazing how all of that helps. Every one of the comments you posted made it to me. I looked forward to Brandi reading to me the things that were posted each day. Don't worry, I do know how to read, it was much easier if she just read it to me. One tends to get a little "strung" up like a puppet when one's in the hospital, alias "The Spa". The Spa? I didn't see it so much.

And thank you for all the support that everyone showed and continues to show Brandi(and me). While lying there helpless it was comforting to know that she had so many people to lean on. People from around Chicago, people offering help that weren't in the same state, people that she had never met and people that I haven't seen in over twenty years! Amazing! That's what gets you through.

Are you still with me? Oh? Great!

Some BIG THANKS go out to those who have kept us eating some tasty food, both in the hospital and out. What kind of yummy treats you ask? How about some jambalaya with a whole lot of love in it...thanks BIG DAN! Some awesome potato leek soup from Tom and Ann...Wonderful! Chicken crepes that were the definition of comfort food from Kathy and the list goes on! Thank you to all!

I want to take a second to answer a question that was posted yesterday from Jill. Hey Jill! I would love to see those old Immanuel pictures! We're working on getting a Flicker account set up that anyone can download to. We'll keep you posted.

Ok, this blog post has kind of turned into an acceptance speech from an Oscar winner but that's ok. I just wanted to let everyone know how much everyones love and support means to me and Brandi. I love reading the comments so keep them coming.

'till next time.... if I'm allowed to have a next time.
See you all.

And the Pulitzer goes to... (drum roll) Brandi! Nice try, Scott!!!

Hope to see you guys sometime within the next week or so. Feeling the need to spread a little cooking love around.

Great to hear directly from you. Did pretty good for your first time out, Brandi might let you try again. Sounds like you guys are eating pretty good up there right now. I gain weight just reading the delicious meals you guys have. After we move I might try and make you some cookies, just not sure if they will mail well.

Keep practicing on your blogging and maybe you will get to do it again soon.

Love and Best Wishes to all
The Nortons

Well done my friend, well done. I've tried this blog thing myself and I must say, you do a much better job than I! It was great to hear from you. We'll keep the comments going and you just keep yourself going. Here's to Spring and warmer weather!

HOT DAMN~BIG DAN, will you and your lovely wife adopt me? I'm only 38 and have some talent in a few areas. I'll do yard work and clean toilets... Small glitch My husband and kids, They'll adjust. Alright this family living community thing in Utah maybe our only option... Nothing weird we can live like an ultra modern amish family. I can settle for living next door. Deal? okay I'll start packing and meet you there.
Oh yeah Nice blogging Scotty !!!

I am impressed and shocked. Impressed that men can do things like this. Some of the guys will not like this so much Scott...raising the bar like that and all. lol shocked that Brandi took some time off......holy shit (great you will probably get an e-mail about that word).

Glad to hear you are eating well although I would take the chips and cookies. :)

Talk soon, lots of hugs Sara
