Not Feeling Too Bad Now...

...about having bought a 6+ pound boned leg of lamb a couple of days ago nor about selling my Norinco Type 56 SKS today. I just threw the lamb in in the oven about 35 minutes or so ago and expect it to be done rare to medium rare in another 70 minutes or so. Not only does it already look scrumptious all browned and sizzling - since I seared it first - but it smells damned delicious already. I cannot wait to quench my anticipation by sinking my teeth in to it. 

If that is not enough reason not to feel guilty about buying such a nice piece of meat then let me just say that I paid for it and way more by selling the SKS. That makes me feel not so guilty about selling the SKS! As a matter of fact, the aroma of the roasting lamb has gotten me in such a good mood as to say I am almost (mind you I said almost) remorseless about having sold that SKS. I am afraid though, once the effects of the lamb and the Kirschwasser I am drinking - neat on ice - wear off, my sellers remorse may go up a few notches. Somehow though, I am sure I will never regret splurging for the lamb.

All the best,
Glenn B
