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.

Your photos captured the wonderful day that it must have been!

And I'll bet your friend's little Rottweiler, Brixx, will grow up to be a well behaved dog. I'm sure they will bring their doggie up, with proper care and doggie training.

When ever I read something horrid about Rottweilers, I think, I bet that dog was not well brought up. And it's a sad thing. A whole breed gets a 'bad name,' because some {stupid} people do not train theirs correctly, etc.
