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.

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!
