I'm ba-a-a-a-ck.......



But back where, exactly, I'm not sure what I mean. I'm back here in the ether, for one thing, but unfortunately for just a short stay because I'm also back here at home, where work galore beckons after a week's absence. The most pressing job is cutting the grass, and I need to get that done before the heat sets in. (An aside Canadian buddies, speaking of heat: I have to chuckle when you complain about how "hot" it is up your way. You start sweating when the thermometer soars to the non-metric 70s, I've discovered. Try the 90s. With the same humidity you have. Now that's hot. This morning it was 72 degrees when I took my walk and I felt like I was in an air-conditioned universe.)


Above, as promised, is the picture of the red-and-blue pie, with optional patriotic white added by the amount of whipped cream of your choice. It was delicious. Here's another fun pic from the week:
Yes, we normally cook the crabs first, but Steve wanted to play with this monster we caught. And that, by the way, is the closest he'll ever get to eating a crab--although he will countenance the occasional crab cake. I caught two dozen crabs on this outing and harvested 1 1/2 lbs of meat. That meat will feed friends crab cakes this weekend. How many "yum" occasions can one body take?!

The kitchen counter was done while we were away and it looks beautiful. I promised b&a pics of that, I know, and they will be forthcoming, but there's still some touchup work to be done in the kitchen before it is camera-ready.

All this fun has its price, and I must be off to pay it. I'll catch up with my work today and I hope for a better visit tomorrow.

Nobody needs a vacation more than someone on their first day back from vacation.

That's a true fact. I took the long weekend 4th off with the grandies and was ready for vacation when we returned. Gotta say though that Ron Jon's Resort in the Cape is made for kids.

I've been to Ron Jon's, Z&M. No doubt, it's for kids.

PS: Nice pic, z!

I know it's all relative, Ravel. An Eskimo would die in the heat here; somebody from the Equator would find it cool.....
