I hope you’re doing well, Vision. Any news?

Hi Gina, I'm also surprised about no Memorial Day shows. He'll probably run something in between.

How's everything? I've got two racks of ribs finishing up on pecan and apple wood.

BB’s the best.

Life's good. The week went quickly. I stained the back fence (one side of it) today and it's looking nice. The sun stayed out so fingers crossed I get past the 24 hour mark before rain.

How was your week?

You’ve been productive! And, the ribs sound great! We’re getting ready to do some “country style” beef ribs.

It’s been hotter than blazes here, and no rain. We’re getting back to really needing rain. We’ve been super busy. Keith is finally taking today and tomorrow off after not having a day off in several weeks. I’ve been right there with him, except not as much outdoor work between my part-time radio job and writing.

I “cheated” again and have been soaking them in some KC Masterpiece Honey Teriyaki marinade.

Besides sweet potatoes (or russets, depending on what we decide), we also have some eggplant from our garden I may cut in big pieces and put on the grill, too, and baste them in grape seed oil, butter and garlic.

Thanks for posting! With SiriusXm’s Radio Classics I’ve fallen for those shows — LOVE Bob Bailey as Dollar and Jack Webb in anything. Glad Radio Classics is now on Sirius XM Internet radio too.

Hi, Doc! Boy-howdy, do I love rain! I’m glad you’re getting some, at least!

Great picture of the Man Called X!

Rain water is the best water for the grass and plants—everything really. Beats the tar out of chemicalized city water.

I read that Herbert Marshall (The Man Called X) lost a leg in World War 1.

No, two rooms needed to be painted. Other rooms only need touching up.

WOW, Vision! Talk about a total misunderstanding of an image! I had never seen that picture before, and I assumed it was a testament to how most people nowadays do not even regard Memorial Day—instead being hooked on their social media, or whatever other distraction, with their backs to the millions of military coffins throughout our American history.

Then I saw the column you, thankfully, linked here and realized she is a Marine widow. My goodness, how that changes my perception of the image! It was just so strange a juxtaposition that it did not occur to me that it was “real.”

Oh, man, now my tears come...
