Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, Gonna try with a little help from my friends

The chorus of this 1967 Beatle's song "A Little Help From my Friends" has been stuck in my head for the last week. Ms. Goofy, Mojo and I lost our best friend Mojo. It has been a long hard week. The outpouring of Love and Support from family and friends has been remarkable. This has gotten us through this dark time.

Carol from Kansas City Missouri, a Mad Meat Genius reader, and I work for the same company. We have met several times and correspond occasionally. She wrote me and said she was going to send us some barbeque sauce from Kansas City. Well Carol put together a package of 15 unique and different barbeque sauces from the Kansas City area. She dispatched them to a cross country 18 wheeler sleeper team which was driven by a friend named MaryBeth. Just like that I have a bevy of sauces to try. You should see the smile on my face. WOW! Carol ,Thankyou!

My Mother and Sister (The President of Cookies) have all ways been there for us. Cookiecrumb who is not really"I'm Mad and I Eat" wrote a sweet tribute. Kailyn, Zoomie, Zia, Greg, Reverend Biggles, Chris, higlandsranchfoodie, fastgrowtheweeds, liteluvr, namastenancy, the pragmatic chef, WhiteTrashBBQ, Greg and so many more that send cards and e-mails Thankyou.

There will allways be a spot in our heart for Mojo. He was so goofy and wonderful. We are getting by with a little help from our friends. I want to leave you with Joe Cocker singing this song. In the 70's I experienced his concert at Winterland. He must have eaten something bad because he threw up in the middle of his performance. He did not miss a beat.

Maybe throwing up was how Joe Cocker kept his voice so gravelly and rough? Anyway, glad our words have helped you and I know the barbecue sauces will give you lots of fun meals to try. Give Oscar a pat from me.

yeah, probably had a bad burger before the show...(wink) I think the background vocals are just classic in that song. I'd love to know who some of those musicians are with him.

I think of the the most classic moments on Saturday Night Live was when John Belushi was doing that fabulous imitation of Joe Cocker, and then Cocker walked on stage and they finished the song together.

Joe Cocker owns a home here in Colorado, Don't know if he lives here full time, but several years ago it was rumored that he did.

I unfortunately never got to see him in concert.

Looks like a righteous gig there. Concert must have been good too! I'm glad to hear you, Ms. Goofy, and Oscar are doing okay.

What a fantastic care package from Carol.
It's nice to hear that you can take comfort from your friends, and maybe even feel a little better.

Great special delivery.

Funny how all of us "strangers" get along, isn't it.

Lots of sauce! The doctor said that Joe suffered from a bad case of the Jack Daniels Flu.
