DDDone!

That, my friends, is the Cuban Sandwich at Vinny’s Bakery in Pasco. This was our last stop on our tour of the local joints featured in the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives program. Let me tell you, it was worth the wait. The bread, baked on site, was delicious, and the sandwich filling portion …

Ride to a Dive

Another great lunch today at a place in Kennewick featured by Guy in Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Today was Barley’s Brewhub. I can’t speak to their beer selection because I was driving, but it sure looked good and I was overhearing good comments from other diners. Mary and I (alas) both had unsweetened iced tea …

Another New Joint

We took Gretel the Ural to Porter’s Real Barbecue in Kennewick for lunch today. This is a fairly new place that we hadn’t been to yet. I had the pulled pork, some slaw, and an order of baked beans. All were excellent! The pork was melt-in-your-mouth tender, and was awesome with their Original BBQ sauce. …

What a Great Weekend

We traveled to Yakima both Saturday and Sunday and had a great time both days. Our daughter-in-law’s birthday is coming up on the 30th, so we had a birthday celebration at her parent’s place Saturday. Many burgers were sacrificed, I tell you, and copious quantities of chips and ice cream were devoured! The grand-kids and …

A Surprise Picture of the Two of Us

We had a small get together for our church today at a local restaurant and ride Ural there. One of our priests got a picture of us unloading after we pulled in. We don’t get shots of the two of us very often, so I thought I’d share.

New Spot for Lunch

We tried out a new spot for lunch today on the recommendation of our priest. (Hey, it had to be good. Right?) It was a beautiful day, despite the bad news from number two son, so we decided to take Gretel the Ural out for a spin with Just Joel’s in Kennewick as our destination. …

Tough week

We found out a little while ago that number two son is having surgery to remove his gallbladder. I’ve been through that myself and it’s not fun. We also have a good friend whose daughter is having surgery this week. Needless to say, my prayer life has taken an uptick.

The Resurrection

We had an interesting discussion last night at Bible Study about the Resurrection and the state of modern Christendom. Most of us are grandparents (which itself says a lot) and many of our kids and grandkids aren’t Christians. Many of the folks blame external factors like “the culture”, or “the schools”, but I think the …
