Some grillin' fun


Happy Memorial Day everybody. We had a cookout today here at the WIXYranch. Instead of the usual fare of hot dogs and burgers(we did have ribs at the inlaws Saturday) our daughter, Martha brought fixings for kabobs. We had some beef, pork and shrimp kabobs. So if you're reading this David McMahon, we did have shrimp on the barbie. Above pictured are daughters Martha and Sylva clowning for the camera. As you can see, someone else was operating the WIXYcam. And no, I still haven't gotten my hair cut.

This picture is of my college educated daughter, Sylva, spraying non stick coating onto the gas grill(it is lit.) Her degree is in education and you know what they say, those who can do and those who can't, teach.

















And of course, no blog post about a family cookout is complete without a few photos of the grand children, as I can't let Cathouse Teri have all the grandparent fun. Above, Silas is patiently waiting for the food to be ready. Right, Makenna is enjoying an ear of corn, and below, Ben is quenching his thirst. Also another shot of my legs.

You and I both need to get our hair cuts. But yours is worse than man. Maybe you should go back down to Florida to get your haircut!

I also noticed white socks with black shoes. You must be from Parma. Or is it black socks with white shoes?

Do you know what they call Euclid? Parma by the lake...

Where's your pink flamingo?

We also didn't have polka music playing.

Oh, and the hair? It's a plan to drive my family nuts. I tell them I grow my hair like that because I can. It will be cut in due time, but it may be the last haircut in awhile.

Can we get a two for one discount?

I, too, am wondering where my invite was! =)

Thos kabobs look great! We actually grill kabobs more often than anything else.

You have a wonderful family Cliff!

Sounds like fun. I'm glad you got to take up some of the grandbaby time in blogworld. :)

You know, I never do the clowning thing. Not on camera or off. I'm just not a clown.

Some of us need to use our sense of humor to cover up for insecurity. And Teri, you seem to be more secure than most bloggers I've posted with.

I won't clown for the camera though. That just reinforces my insecurities.

Shit. I'm totally insecure about having my picture taken. I am NOT photogenic. Sometimes my mother insists on taking pictures of me and I allow her to, out of respect. I just ask her to pleeeeeeeeeez not let me see them! :)

Like I just posted over at your comment section on your latest post, which is an excellent post, I have a sense of humor and am not afraid to poke fun at myself. That's why I will run occasional pitures of myself here.

It's Wednesday night here and I've just finished a BBQ - but please tell your daughter not to spray a lit BBQ ever.

And yes, come over and have the next BBQ at my place -- I'll include corn and my special Lemon Pepper Chicken!
