I think its time you should seriously start considering salads!


Well - it is upon us. The Sopranos returns Sunday night for 12 weeks of mafioso fun under the Jersey sun. I can't quite explain just how jazzed I am to start watching this series again. Sunday nights with the family - and loads of Italian dinners to eat... and Four Square fun to be had.


If'n ya don't know - The Sopranos is a major event in the Findlay/Schmacker household. It all began when I returned to Des Moines from Iowa City. Season 4 was starting up and I thought it might be fun if a group of us got together to view. So at that point, there was just Jerry, Matt, Jed, and Josh. But things grew.


By the time the 5th season hit, our group was bouncing in between 3 different locations with groups that reached nearly 15 people! The real excitement came when we started cooking Italian dishes to have each Sunday - with each person taking a turn cooking.


Last year, during Deadwood's run, we started doing games of four square outside as dinner was being made. This added another level of fun to look forward to each Sunday! The game sometimes overshadowed our excitement to watch the show!!


So where are you going to be Sunday night? If you have no plans - come join us! I am super excited to have the family back... and to have the Sopranos back on. I am ready for the end!!


SALUTE!!!!

I'm also hosting a Sopranos viewing up here in Seattle. I've heard the first one's going to be shocking, whatever that may mean, so I will be there.

Jed, if you didn't get my message in the Smurf thing about the visitor log I'll e-mail it to you.

D'oh! Kern, you are correct, and nice catch! My excuse is getting only about 3 hours of sleep due to my kiddo being sick...

Kern said...

Oh bummer. Nothing serious, I hope?

Naw, nothing serious, just an ear infection. (Her 9,347th since she was born, August 4, 2005. :) Kidding, of course, but sometimes it seems like it!)
