FUN BBQ


We had fun today. Our local meat store had a BBQ. Oregon Ranch Meats. They had 21 different BBQ booths where they were competing for the best barbecued chicken wings,tri tip beef and potato salad.

We could eat all we wanted as long as we visited each booth and then we were to vote for our favorite.

The money was to benefit the Coos County Homeless Shelter.

There was a band. The singer sounded like Bob Segar!


A Christian Motorcycle club

Check out the chaps!


A Hawaiian theme

People of all kinds


Wonderful food...I voted for all of them!

We had a fun time and even took some tri tip to the puppies...they were happy.

We are leaving for Portland in the morning for my husbands pre-op visit for his glaucoma surgery on October 6th. He is very scared but won't talk about it. Instead he is cranky. I don't know what to say to him to comfort him except I love him and it will be okay. His answer to that was I could be blind if this doesn't work. That's NOT ok. He is right. Please pray for him.

Then we will be going to San Pedro for his 50th class reunion after the doctors appointment. We are driving and will be gone for 10 days.

I will be looking at your blog when i get back and I am sure I will have some interesting pictures of the reunion.

Love ya all

Oh by the way....I am only 10 lbs away from my weight loss goal. I have lost 26 lbs since the end of May and my husband has lost 22 lbs. I went shopping yesterday for new jeans...guess what size I fit into? A SIZE 10 !!!!! YES!!

He'll be in my prayers too! Congrats on the weight loss, that's impressive! I hope you have fun at the reunion. Hopefully it will help your husband's spirits too or at least get his mind distracted for a bit.
