One of the most fun weekends of the year, and after weeks of beautiful weather, Saturday dawns cold and rainy, and the big barbecue contest and the big Pensacola Mardi Gras Parade are scheduled for this day. Fortunately, the skies held back until late in the day, and both barbecue cook-off and Mardi Gras were a big success.
AdventureMan and I hit the cook-off after a spring vegetable growing class out at Garden Gate Nurseries. Oh, what fun. People from all over the barbecue-ing states of the nation competing to produce the best barbecue. Heaven!
In Qatar and in Kuwait, every time I filled my gas tank, I smiled. Gas runs around 70 cents a gallon. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Actually, this is from a couple days ago. The price has gone up again since then. 😦
