Our Memorial Day Get-Together

First, let me say that while I didn't take any food photos because I was busy looking out for Mama and Duncan, there was plenty of it--ribs, hamburgers, Zenner's Big Dogs (Louisiana Red Hot Sausage, Old Fashioned Double Smoked Sausage and Beef Coney Dogs--at least I think those are the ones I bought for them), home-made tortilla chips and hushpuppies, a really delicious pasta salad, fresh salsa, and all of the fixings. Everyone enjoyed being together, laughing, talking, eating. The kids had a great Memorial Day get-together for all of us family and lots and lots of their friends.

Here are a few photos I did get to take--wish I'd stopped to take more, but part of the time I also ate some delicious food and played in the street with the young people--see below.
Mississippi friends' Leslie and Chris' darling Rottweiler, Brixx.
My darlin' sons, Lamont and Leland, with their fresh flame in the background. In no time at all, it was ready for some of that luscious food I listed earlier.
Mama and Duncan, on the back porch.
Duncan and Brixx, nose to nose.
Neighbor Emily's baby boy, Duncan and Mama.
Leland with friends Anakin and Philip, playing street Frisbee, but it's not Frisbee, it's another Frisbee-like thing that isn't solid, hard, firm, or heavy.
Brody and Lamont going for the Frisbee-like-thing.
Mississippi friend Mabry lets it fly.
Three Doors Down fellow cook, kitchen, back-of-the-house friend Flash with a bit of a rib in his left hand and his phone in his right.

Oh man, that's just what I needed: a dose of Mamma and Duncan! Mamma looks really pretty smiling like that. I wish I had a mom like her. Everyone is having fun. I want to move to Oregon so I can live in the city and ride the mass transit! I have an indoor cat. I could get a rolling cat stroller. Now I could get into that. She already walks on a leash around the yard with me.

Thanks so much.

OK, gotta say this: that little baby hand about to pat Duncan is so sweet. And, the young man on the right in the fire photo is Lamont? His smile looks like Mamma's a bit. Love the dogs.

I'm so lonely.

Mississippi friend Mabry--tell him he's a natural born modern dancer. Look at that form!
