Monday 13 November, a trip to Mt Vernon & the last BBQ for the season:
Today we took a trip to Mt Vernon, home of George Washington. I couldn't begin to say all that there is to say about George Washington, when you learn his history, despite what some people say about American History, you can't help but know there was Devine intervention in his life. Here are some pictures:

I took this in the backyard
Looks cold huh
It was about 40 degrees
this is a chair cart, notice the chair attached to the base
Out by the wharf
on the Potomac
This is where George and Martha (and others) are interred.
The Weights, and Bishops and me. Patty didn't feel like going so she stayed home
Monday was the last BBQ for the Brookside apts. for the season, I had been promising Sonoran dogs for my family and friends. I have been preparing for this for 3 weeks getting things ready, I was planning on making 24 dogs, which I did. I promised several people some Sonoran Dogs, so Im made 28, they were, to say the least over done!! The coals were way to hot and the bacon caused the coals to flare up. Anyway they burned, I was very disappointed, I felt like I built them up so much and it was not good. We had everything for the dogs, plus pie. Oh well, I gonna make it up on taco night. I decided to make my pan fried tacos, I'll let you know how that works out. Anyway here are some pictures of the BBQ:
Geri (Slade) Gillespie ask if we could take a picture of the "family"
