Throw another pig on the smoker...

The Aussies throw another shrimp on the barbie and we Yanks throw another pig on the smoker. It wouldn't be Summer in PA without the smell of smoking pork wafting in the air! We PA natives love the "other white meat" and we don't need much to organize a good ole' pig roast.

Just a couple of old metal barrels cut in half filled with charcoal and fragrant wood and you have the perfect place to roast your pig.

It is usually a bring your own lawn chair and a side dish and you have a party.

We are in the middle of a heat wave right now with temps between 90 and 100 F. It is really too hot to do much of anything except be lazy.

I bought this white hat for a couple of bucks last year at Gabriel Bros. I love it because you can pin or clip anything on it to re-make it. I added a simple hair netting (you know the kind we wore on our behives in the 60's) to dress it up a bit. The earrings came from a bag of earrings I bought at the church charity shop for a few dollars.

My shoes and purse were bought at different times but match almost perfectly. The bag came from Goodwill and the shoes came from Shoesource on clearance.

We are slowly getting our Arbor redone. It still looks like it is going to fall over, but it is actually quite stable.

I found these Liz Claiborne sailing pants at the Church Charity Shop for $2 last week.

I made Larry stand for a picture in his $6 Summer suit from Community Aid and his straw driving hat we got in a box of hats at a yard sale for $10. There were at least a dozen hats in the box as well as decorated hair nets.

That is my red pimpmobile behind him. We just purchased a white Crown Vic so we are now a two pimpmobile family.
