Celebration On Pine Island

My sister has one of the most adorable homes on Pine Island.  It’s small, but she’s utilized the space well.  Though our home is much larger, at times, her house has a bigger feel. 

Around 1:00 in the afternoon, the guys fired up the grill.  We were having clams first followed by london broil, hamburgers and hotdogs, ears of roasted corn and deviled eggs.  Those clams were really good by the way.  That’s Uncle Darryl working hard at the grill.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We even invited a neighbor lady whose husband recently passed away.  She has no kids at all and no family close by.  Check out that clam action!   It didn’t take long to rip through 100 that’s for sure.  After the appetizers were downed, the real food was ready right on time.  And of course, since July 3rd was mom’s birthday and we were all out of town for Father’s Day (mom was in D.C. visiting a friend) we concluded our day with a vanilla bean bundt cake accompanied by salted caramel gelato.   Both dessert items were a boxed mixture and they were amazing.  We added some dark chocolate pieces to the gelato and it was heavenly.  I hope there’s still some left when I return to the island on Friday, but I’m not betting on it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Check out this awesome piece of Brain Coral that Darryl brought back from the beach in the Bahamas.  This is perfect, it weighs a ton and it resonates a helmet.  Totally cool.

Sex & and the City

Saw it today!  Was not disappointed, went by quickly, loved it!  Predictable?  Yes.  Did I care?  No.  Do I hope they make a sequel?  Yes.  Something to be said for a mozarella and tomato salad for lunch, great conversation and a little shopping topped off with entertainment!  Saturdays like this are far and few.  Our theater was sweltering.  We’ve had a ton of rain, so it’s super humid here in the Midwest.  We complained.  Score for us.  We each received a free movie ticket!  We’ll be back.  Perhaps to see the new Luke Wilson flick.  The name of the film has left me.  Anyhow, an image of Jesus appears on the side of Luke Wilson’s stucco home.  Just what we all need right?  If it happens to me, you can bet, I’ll be cashing in on it!  Just like that image of Jesus that appeared on that grilled cheese sandwich that showed up on ebay.  Check back tomorrow.  Perhaps the mold on the North side of our house is a diety in the making!
