Yesterday was Memorial Day, which here in America is traditionally the beginning of summer. And in America, the summer is Grilling Season.
So behold, our new gas grill, with Alan at the helm. Note the Margarita held in Alan's hand - no grill chef should be without one ;-)
Y'all will be happy to know the grill works very well. Visitors should be primed to the prospect of eating plenty of burgers and sausages from this fine outdoor kitchen.
We are looking forward to being able to do more outdoors cooking. The advantage of a gas burner is that you don't have to wait for a barbeque to heat up, which makes it more useful on a weekday evening.
Other things that occurred this weekend - rain. Lots of rain. It was a bank holiday, after all. However we did go into town on Saturday night in my Jeep, with the top down, after the clouds had threatened all day but not actually done anything. We met Peggy and Lloyd at their trailer, which just happens to be right next door to Austin's new brew pub. We felt it was our duty to go and sample some of their beers, which turned out to be very drinkable. After a very pleasant evening with our friends, we drove back just in time - the heavens opened just as we got back to the ranch! We managed to get the Jeep under cover before we got too wet but some rain did get in. All part of the fun ;-)
