Prom Night Tips

TIP NUMBER ONE: Be sure your tux compliments your date's outfit. You can't go wrong with classic black.

TIP NUMBER TWO: If you are an international man of intrigue, don't forget to have your tailor stitch in some deep pockets for all your gear.

TIP NUMBER THREE: Take your hands out of your pockets for photos.
Tonight is Junior's Senior Prom, so yet another milestone falls as graduation slips closer and closer.
He and his crew of similar dashing gents and dames are heading out to eat, then to the Prom, and then ... to a late, late showing of IRON MAN 2, and finally to his bud's house to crash until I drag him out for the ride to St. Augustine tomorrow morning.
I'm sure he will be cheerful and perky.
We are celebrating mothers at Mom's tomorrow.
Last week, I asked my Mom what she wanted for her Mother's Day lunch and she said, " Well, you do make pretty good ribs."
So, today I BBQ'd 3 racks to take along tomorrow. While the young coals were tres, tres chaud, I grilled some sirloins for supper and then put the ribs on the grill, off to the side to cook for about 3 hours.
Tomorrow's menu looks to be BBQ ribs, baked beans, salad, bread, and a towering chocolate walnut cake with ganache icing.
Sounds like Father's Day to me ... check the calendar!

It's amazing how grown up they can look when they get dressed up.

I hope your mom has a nice mother's day (and I hope Junior's mom has a nice mother's day too).

I'm thinking you're setting the bar at just the right height for Father's Day.

Tell Junior to get his finger off that trigger unless he is ready to shoot!!
Looking sharp in his duds...hope he washed his face after Bear kissed him...I'm sure his date hoped the same thing ;)

I showed late with Leslie. Jr seemed to be having a smashing good time! And he didn't look half bad either!

Jr. looks like he doesn't mind dressing up and going to prom. Mine was frustrated he had to go again this eyar. He hates to dress up, but that's what comes from dating a younger woman who is still in school! Very handsome boys (canine and human). Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in your life!

Thanks y'all on behalf of Jr. He had a great time judging by how pooped out he was yesterday.
