Land Park Community Association Membership BBQ: a Real Sunday Treat
We really came to the Land Park Communication Association membership BBQ on Sunday to visit with the dogs. Everybody brings their dogs to these events. Because I always say there is little more rewarding than holding a stick while a dog chews on the other end. Dogs to pet. Dogs to rough-house with, to pay compliments to or just plain scritch behind the ears. Well, we did find two dogs. But we stayed for the food and music.
Far as I know, this is the first Land Park Community Association membership BBQ. Can’t recall ever an invitation to another over the years. It was totally free. BBQ pulled pork and BBQ chicken from T&R Taste of Texas, ice cream from Vic’s. You can see my mint chocolate chip cone above being served by the happiest guy we saw. My husband would disagree, but I say his enthusiastic attitude is probably due to his Hawaiian shirt. Who can’t be happy wearing a Hawaiian shirt?
For a person who has attended zero picnics so far this year, I’ve gone to two picnics this past weekend. And I managed to devour everything on my plate. Macaroni salad, beet salad, pulled pork, BBQ chicken and a salad of greens, cherry tomatoes and croutons.
Even the weather cooperated. It was a beautiful 72 degrees with frequent high winds. The blowing of the leaves across the park whipped some of them off the ground by a good foot or so, so food plate elevation became necessary.
Toward the end of the event, which was only 2 hours long, I had to recap the open house activity from four open houses yesterday. But fortunately, I could do all of that from my cellphone. Thank goodness for technology. I sell can real estate from anywhere.
Pictured above was the band, California Stars. Reminds me of a song on the Mermaid Avenue CD, music by Wilco and Billy Bragg, lyrics originally written by Woody Guthrie. I wonder if there is a connection? Probably not. They were more country honky-tonk, and really good, too.
