The DDC Housewarmin' BBQ
Posted at 11:55 AM


The DDC Housewarmin’ BBQ was a stellar success. Highlights include “mean shit served hot off the grill”, cool night air and Dave England show everyone on the porch his one nut.

Thanks to everyone who showed up, for the awesome gifts and for hanging out with us on the inaugural day.

And if my dad said anything to offend anyone, well, we warned you.

All I have to say is, take whatever you heard about Jim Draplin and multiply it by 37. Then subtract how offended you get by masturbation jokes.

And, as much as Papa D is a wild-man-on-fire, Mama D is a sweetheart who still spent the night cleaning up after her son after I told her several times to let that ingrate clean up after his own damn party.

The Draplindustrial Park is an awesome pad. A great neighbor, crash rooms with floor drains for the nights you just can’t get up to pee, an included meat locker, fresh window screens, kans of killz, ample amounts of aluminum clad pixel makers, good people and salt-of-the-earth relatives.

Gracias to all Draplins and Whitneys and everyone else who brought beer that I drank without asking. Good times.

I cried all night knowing that I wasn’t there with you.

The hell with that. I see enough of your stinky ass. I miss your folks. They’re somethin’ special.

Glad to see you had a good time! Thanks for the props on your site it’s cool. We did miss you big time at the wedding, but we understand you live on the other side of the planet. My best man is posting the pics from everyone at the wedding on a site. It’s www.wedding.jaybirde.com He’s having a hard time making them fit. We want a free site with lots of room for pics, not an easy task! He will have it done this week sometime. Can’t wait til the fall buddy, be good and Mrs Steele and I will see you then…..unca Kev and anutie Kim
