You Caught It? ~ ELA Taco Wagon ~ VJ Day ~ PJ & Dave's BBQ

Good 60ยบ cloudy and 72% humidity morning. Looked like it might rain and really windy last night, but doesn't feel like rain. Pressure was dropping for a while but going back up.

Baseball fans.....this is hilarious! "Did you catch that?" "Ha ha ha... yes I did!"


PICTURE of the day...
LOL.... ELA?

Historically this date....
1901Vice President of the United States Theodore Roosevelt utters the famous phrase, "Speak softly and carry a big stick" at the Minnesota State Fair.

1945 – World War II: Combat ends in the Pacific Theater: the Instrument of Surrender of Japan is signed by Japanese Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu and accepted aboard the battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.

... the Japanese surrendered on my Mother's birthday, August 15th... and signed the treaty on my birthday! Cool. AND then my Brian was stationed aboard the Mighty Mo when he was a Marine. Anti-terrorist watch, guarding the atomic weapons during the Gulf War ... Marine Detachment.

Yesterday afternoon PJ and Dave had a barbecue. It was to celebrate Dave's birthday (9-12), PJ's sister Mike's birthday (8-27), and mine. Debbie was all set with props.... birthday girl got the tiara...
Since the "theme" was Asian food.... Pam (Mike's partner) came in appropriate attire... with her egg... set it on the counter and it rolls! Get it... egg roll!
PJ fixed spectacular pork marinated with yummmm ingredients and Dave barbecued it.
We had egg rolls (lol), pot stickers, pork, coleslaw, corn, rice with peas (YUMMMMM!!!) and Debbie's Jell-O/cream cheese/pretzel salad (AWESOME!)

Deb... would you please share the recipe???? Please!!!
L-R Dave, Debbie, Tom, me, Pam, PJ, and Tim...
Sadly Tim's partner, PatC was not feeling well, and Pam's partner Mike was in Redmond Washington pet-sitting for a sister.
Then out came the chopsticks!
Dessert was one of Tom's famous lemon mirangue pies! Sigh... so good.

Gifts were shared. Thank you all!!!
Pam left her headband and Dave picked up the theme...
Thank you Debbie for the photos!!!!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy VJ Day and Labor Day Monday.Ciao.
