Baby back ribs (from Costco, of course !)

the master and his "secret" recipe...

colorful ingredients create the sauce...
and into the smoker.....

and out of the smoker....

great food, great wine and great friends....

Grandma and Ruby walk to the park one sunny day in Spring...

where Ruby loves to swing and sing....

the big toy is a favorite thing...

the tire looks like a big, fat ring....

lots of smiles inside the ring...

back home again for a lunchtime fling....

with lots of good vegetables for eating...

Grandma goes to Opening Day

"Take me out to the ball game,.

Take me out with the crowd.

Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,

I don't care if I never get back,

Let me root, root, root for the Mariners,

If they don't win it's a shame.

For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,

At the old ball game."

An Afternoon at the Seattle Center

Whirly-gig, Whirly-gig
Take me up high
High enough to reach the sky

Whirly-gig Whirly-gig
Zoom past mars
Far enough to catch the stars
Whirly-gig Whirly-gig
Drive me fast
Fast enough to blur the past

Whirly-gig Whirly-gig

Take me along

Together we play among the throng

Whirly-gig, Whirly-gig

Spin me about
About until I turn inside-out

Whirly-gig, Whirly-gig,
Fly me around
Around and around above the ground

Whirly-gig, Whirly-gig,

The day is done and said

Take me to bed

so back home is where we head.
