Thanksgiving Weekend

Over Thanksgiving weekend, we went to Memphis to visit family. Dale loves ribs more than anything else–even Thanksgiving dinner! On Saturday night, he finally got his BBQ Pork!

Gary & Mom selecting their preferred BBQ item. Gary had ribs; mom the pulled pork.

Sarah and Chris–they both had ribs!

Dale got his ribs! Isn’t he happy!? He also smeared BBQ on his face. He was very enthused!

Gary liked his ribs, too!

Ribs! And onion rings. Delish!

The carnage…

More Scotland

I forgot to post the link to Dale’s photos from Scotland.

Just to give you a basic rundown:
There are photos of:
the Royal Yacht Brittania–the Queen’s ship, where Princess Di enjoyed her Honeymoon!
Edinburgh Castle–quite spectacular and more like a fort than you might expect.
St. Giles cathedral and the mini chapel within known as the Order of the Thistle–where the elite pray, I guess.
The Ruins of St. Andrews Cathedral, quaint fishing villages and the birthplace of golf as well as and some shots taken around Edinburgh.

Hope that helps explain some of the photos!

Back from Edinburgh

Long time no blog! We’re back from Scotland and still recovering from jetlag and general travel exhaustion. I took the snapshot above at Edinburgh castle. Will be posting a ton of pics, as well as a HUGE gallery of our photos in the coming weeks. We need time, people! We’re tired!

Anyway, above is a photo taken of some famous stairs at Edinburgh Castle, which is actually more of a fort from my perspective. The castlefort overlooks a really nice Starbucks. But the damn coffee shop closes at 7 p.m. Crazy country! Everything is the same but just a little different. For example the Dollar Store is called Pound City. Seriously. I didn’t believe my eyes at first but I saw several of them. Coke tastes more like Pepsi. The cars drive on the opposite of the road, as do the drivers. Heh.

Anyway, lots more to come, just wanted to post my favorite picture so far.
