    I know, check out those ladies in their dresses and heels! If only I looked that good when we are barbecuing! Why don’t they have bbq sauce on their yellow frocks?

    Was that towering white hat a 60s thing? My husband never wears a hat when he barbeques!

    Hello Mellisa,
    Thank you for coming over for a visit. You are most welcome to come by any time. I have been over at your place before. Dear Vee invited us all to have a look at the drive bys. Such a fun idea. I think I picked up on the fact that you were in Portland…not to far from me, but a whole different climate. I really enjoyed my visit. I will be back.

    Happy Father’s day to your hubby and all the dads! We celebrate it on the first Sunday of September (not quite sure why we do that???)
    Love the picture, yes where is the BBQ sauce on their frocks?!

    i have the best picture …somewhere…of my dad and his parents and siblings at their outdoor bbq that looks just like this!
    it’s black and white and so classic.
    my sister and i laughed that the lady in the chair kind of even looks like our grandma.

    happy weekend.

    Looks like outdoor kitchens have been the rage for a while. Also, if you thought turning off the comment box wouldn’t let me congratulate you, too bad, so sad….. CONGRATS to you!
