    2 Family Picnic at Bear Jr’s House

    It was time for the Family Picnic, with Bear’s Family & Mrs Bear’s Family, so Bear Jr offered up his place, as he always does, because he has the room, and all the Smoking, heating & cooling toys needed. He & his wife & Mrs Bear are all pretty good at organizing the get together too.

    So we had Pulled Pork, Dogs & Kraut, Tater Salad, and all kinds of snacks, pies, cookies, chips, and other things that were brought by the relatives.

    Plenty of Beer & Soda to go around too!!!

    I took a mess of pics, so you could see we all had a fun time!!!

    Wow. Beautiful home and grounds. And lots of happy people and tummies. Which is no surprise considering what you fed them.

    When is the next one? What should I bring?

    Nope the closest I could come is a cutting torch and a welder. He was a blacksmith but his roman counter part was Vulcan, the God of smoke and fire. When I saw that the Gods had given him aphrodite as a wife..... sounded like my type a man.  Smoke, fire, tongs, bellows, and a good lookin woman. Now to incorporate some brew its would be perfect!

    Sorry Bear, didn't mean to detour your thread.
