Meet Mark Wilson owner of Holy Smoke (that’s) BBQ Carolina Beach, North Carolina
Eat in or Take out. The meats are cooked slowly over oak coals.
Mr. Wilson said he can talk about smoked meat all day long.
Our family ate two orders of Hush Puppies before our dinners came to the table. You choose two house made sides with your dinner and I selected green beans and Mac and Cheese. You could choose from baked beans, fries, mashed potatoes or slaw, corn bread or potato salad.
Pulled Pork, Brisket, Meat Loaf. The sauce on the table has honey and vinegar in it and is flavorful.
Since there were nine of us, we sampled quite a variety from the menu. The fried chicken is made to order. Have you ever heard of Cheerwine?
Ooops it’s already Fall.
Maternal grandma (FFMarlene) baked peanut butter chip cookies for our grandkids Anna, Michael, Jack and Maura.
We are going to have a doubly sweet family weekend together. Our tins of cookies will disappear at lightning speed.
Baked some cookies to take to the grandchildrenl
Kind, generous, considerate, helpful, responsible, creative – a genuinely good person with a thoughtful heart…and I’m not just saying this cause I’m grandmother.
Proud of all you’ve accomplished and looking forward to your future!
Wishing you the happiest birthday, Anna Catherine. Fourteen years old? Wow. I remember the day you were born.
And don’t forget, you’re the one who made up the grandma name Froo Froo (Ruthie)
From my archives March 2013
I remember taking these photos as my sister and I walked down Fifth Avenue. Photographed with a Canon 5D. I shot 188 images in about 45 minutes, Here are a few. Too many I know but it was hard to choose.
Pedestrians on cell phones can get distracted and crossing the street while staring at your screen is risky. These pedestrians were easy to photograph cause they weren’t paying attention to me. Well, maybe one or two noticed.
You could write a phone conversation dialogue for the images.
