Pops is a Korean War Army Veteran, and I like to make a good lunch for him every Memorial Day.
So I smoked a Tri-tip / reverse-sear.
Used an old recipe for simple Rootbeer Baked Beans w/ chopped onions & thick cut bacon chunks.
Grilled some corn and made Tri-Tip sammiches w/ a hit of BBQ -Sauce w/ a couple coldies.
Pops was STOKED. 🇺🇸

Good on you!!! My Dad was there also with the Army. I wish I could do that for him, he's been gone for 31 years. 😭

Sure, It's nothing fancy at all . . . just take one of those larger (not giant) cans of plain Bush Baked Beans, the one WITHOUT the extra flavors like, maple, brown sugar, bacon etc.
I chop 1/2 a yellow onion, and fry 4-5 slices of thick cut bacon . . . chop the bacon up into small pieces and throw it into the beans w/ the onions, then add 1/2 -2/3 cup of rootbeer, stir it all up in a lided pot and throw it in the oven for 45 minutes at 350 . . . I usually stir it once around the 20 minute mark & call it good.
Kinda hokey, but people seem to like it.

I told the guys we are in rattlesnake country and to be careful and use a shovel to make noise in the bushes along the sidewalk we are replacing before we put our hands next to the bushes to form. Well they thought I was full of shit, I see one of our guy bend down and then jump up and back with surprise and terror on his face🤣, he looks at me an says "Snake"🤣, I start laughing and said "Told you fucker"🤣. I walked over and saw a gopher snake and I said you are lucky. He grabbed shovel and walked the length of our job twice and made all kinds of noise in the brush. They believe me now🤣🤣 I wouldn't fukin lie🤣.

About 3 feet long

I noticed what appeared to be gopher snake in my backyard the other day. Size, shape and head type made it easy to ID it as a non-venomous species, but it's coloration was strange, more like a metallic greyish bronze, like he shimmered in the sun. Looking it up later I discovered it was a one of the colorations of a Rosy Boa, which I'd only seen the lighter colored version previously.

Oldest daughter graduated this week. They had this parade and she wanted to use the boat...day prior I told her flat out no. Than I decided it was more important that I do it for her than worry about my issues with it. Glad I did! It was pretty huge deal really surprised me. I am 38 and when the boy Graduates I will be 52 lol.

Not my pics -- but here's what they look like, in case you run across one. Both the lighter variety I'd previously seen and the darker one like I saw a couple of days ago.
They make awesome pets, but my keeping pets days are over, so they can be yard pets.

This the color of the one I saw this time -- in the shade pretty dark, but when the sun hit it, it appeared more metallic.

@Tank can probably vouch but excellent breakfast and patriotic atmosphere. Not expensive either end right by the sandy beach.

Dude. You on town right now? That’s half half a mile from my house. That’s place is tasty. Good dude owns it too. It’s where mrs Olsen’s used to be and now mrs Olsen’s is in the harbor and not even close to what it used to be except they have live bands that plays Saturday and Sunday. With Barrett today and just got back from watching the band right now. 😁👍

If your around roll by.
