Mayday picture of the (May) Day

minnehaha B, in his natural environment. After the Mayday Parade, the MN-STF picnic went into full force, with blankets, sandwiches and B on grill. Several types of meat were available. I sampled the "French-style sausage".

They were good, but nothing I associated with France. I opined: "These are French-style Sausages in the same way French Fries are French."

"Not so much," doubted buttonlass, in the background of the picture, dealing with buttonfish.

Romm Gallery 8: Baby pictures and more!

For those of you wondering what I've been doing instead of posting Mayday pictures (you know who you are...), I've been working on Romm Gallery 8, comprising two trips to Washington DC to visit brother Joe and sister-in-law Patty. The first trip was for Thanksgiving. By the second trip, in April, I also could visit with new niece Antonia! Both involved doing touristy stuff, but I've put the Panda and Hillary Clinton pictures at the end.

Edited: First pass is done, though I still have to attach it to the rest of the site and announce it to the family. As usual, LJ gets a sneak peak. Corrections are encouraged.
