Memorial Day at Jay’s

To Jay and Steph’s place in Highland Park for a Memorial Day BBQ. We at, we goofed around, we got some sun, we observed the behaviour of babies, which are now appearing everywhere. Oy, we’re old.

BBQ at Cotton’s

I imagine it must be very lusty indeed to have a private garden in Jersey City. Impromptu BBQs wouldn’t seem at all out of ordinary. In fact, I’d be grilling every night. The patio is really just an extension of the kitchen, no?

I allowed myself a bit of humour in watching Kendra, Hannah, and Cotton try to light the Grill and get the coals going. Eventually, they got things, um, cooking. Those Ivy League heads are good for something, it seems.

And no, we didn’t start Ali on a life of drinking. I imagine she’ll figure that one out all on her own when she starts Uni in a few months time. We did, however, give her a healthy [over]dose of twentysomething urban depression. I can’t help being a DUPPIE.

Joaquin’s Freedom Pig

Nothing says Independence like an entire pig roasting over hot coals.

Or maybe it just has to more to do with spending a lovely afternoon with good friends, eating good food, and enjoying the outdoor simpleness of suburban New Jersey. These days, it is much rarer that we assemble at Joaquin’s house, and fittingly we commemorated the 27th anniversary of Joaquin’s birth along with the 233rd anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Red, White, and Blue cake eventually showed itself. As did rice and beans.

So to Messers Jefferson, Adams, Franklin, Hancock, Bartlet, et al., here’s to you.
