Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itEven after a late night with our friends around the campfire enjoying more fun times, I was still up just after 5:30 this morning. Ready to enjoy another wonderful hot summer day. Shortly before 8 am Barb dropped by for a chat and John stopped by on his bike ride. We chatted a bit and we all carried on with our day.
A couple of pics from last night's campfire.

Then this morning around 9 and I headed out on a mission. Looking for fresh white corn and check out the beaches and cheap gas for our car. The mission was accomplished !

got some first of the season White corn
|good deal on this very ripe cantaloupe only 50 cents|
|a wonderful beach but high water levels |
no driving on the beach this year.
|9:30 this morning people are getting set up already|

|Suzie did not want to go to the beach so we stayed home|
|was amazing with this young girl on her THING? |
cruising around the park all day.
I am sure I would hurt myself
|nothing quiet like fresh garden tomatoes|
|later in the afternoon we moved further back for more shade ,|
it was getting pretty hot out
|soak the cobs in water for an hour or so|
Then I fired up our Weber Q 100 to grill a couple of Turkey garlic sausage and heat up the soaked corn in their husks.
|20 minutes of so and all was done perfectly|
|the wagon ride round the park at 7 pm|
|another nice campfire on a warm summer night|

|John poured Bill a drink and put an ICEBERG in it|
will be cold for a while !
Thanks for dropping by today.
Remembering my Brother
Today is my brother Don's birthday but he had that dreaded disease, cancer that took him way too early in 2000, he was only 38 years old. I remember the day he was born Aug 14th 1962, I took mom to the hospital. and he became my side kick for many years. I miss him most every day we sure had some great times together.
|Don and me beside my 1956 Ford in 1965|
he travelled around with me a lot back then
and even in the years to come
