Every year, Lori's brother and his family came to her place for a few days for a visit. Three years ago, Lori's son, brother & nephew decided to spent a day together hanging out without the women folk. Therefore, Mandate was born.
Last year Mandate II was moved to my place being that I had a pool & a BBQ. It was so much fun that everyone decided that each year Mandate would be held at my place. Mandate III was expanded to two days this year and celebrated this week on Tuesday & Wednesday.
Tuesday we started Mandate with a clambake. We walked over to the beach and gathered seaweed. Then we put an inch of water in the bottom of the pots and laid in a layer of seaweed.
Next we put in potatoes, corn on the cob, clams, muscles, shrimp.....
..... and last but not least, lobsters.
Then the last layer, more seaweed topped off by a potato. When the potato is done, so is everything else.
The table was set, the food was cooked.............
Finally it was time to sit down to what turned out to be a very delicious meal.
We even had a mascot.
If you look close you'll see he his tattoo.
HAPPY MANDATE III HNT
In just over two weeks, on August 7th, I will be having the First Annual Blogger Party.
This BTExpress as a young child at the ripe old age of 5 1/2 somewhere in the Tampa/St Petersburg, Florida area. That's my Polish grandfather in the background. We were out on one of our usual Sunday drives to who knows where. My dad always carried fishing tackle in the car and whenever he saw fishing spot where he thought he could catch something, he'd pull the car over to the side of the road and fish. He always caught something, but today was especially an good day, as you can see in the picture.
I'll never forget this day because it was a day he made me lift this very heavy large mouth bass. He caught the thing, but insisted that I hold the fish and the rod so he could take my picture. I remember telling him it was too heavy, and arguing with him, but he insisted. I struggled, as you can tell by the way I was listing in the shot, but hold it I did.
Isn't it strange the things you remember?
Well, anyway, have a Happy Half-Nekkid Thursday everyone.
