BBQ Sunday...
Smoking some pork ribs and kilbasa sausage. Will toss in a couple chunks of SPAM here in a bit for some snake food while awaiting the ribs to finish.

Spring Time
Decided the front walk was looking drab and needed some Spring color. Periwinkles to the rescue!

Lunch Food!
Firing-up the smoker to get some sack lunch fodder for this week. Couple racks of back ribs and a variety of sausages from Meunster. Forgot to pick-up some Spam to smoke for snacking (might have run over to grocery store and fix that problem)...

Would have been a briskette wedged in there too, but it's still a half block of ice defrosting. That'll have to wait until next weekend.

21st Century BBQ
A buddy picked-up a MasterBuilt electric smoker for me today. No more slaving over hot coals and adding firewood! Yay! :)

Well, except for occasions when I have time to be traditional...

I'll be up bright and early to run it through a curing/seasoning, then pile on the beta test of ribs and sausage for tomorrow's dinner!

Duck-Be-Gone MK1-M2
Once again the flying rats (local mallards) are attempting to annex my backyard and pool. The tethered pool noodles twisting about are usually enough to spook'em to the neighbor's pool... :)

Time to make the sidewalk colorful
Nabbed some more flowers to spruce up the front entry. Mainly an act of procrastination because I don't want to mow the yard... :)

A Mallard has determined to nest in my backyard. I'd chase the rascal off, but there already eggs in the nest. Next year I'll get the duck distractor in the pool in February...

In the meantime, I picked-up a huge bag of millet/feed for the beasty. :)

Glad it is you this year and not us.  We have had mallards nest in our backyard the past two years.  Not too bad except they poop (a lot) in the pool.  The mother and babies would generally hang around for about 24 hours after they hatched (she providing swimming lessons in the pool during that time -- that was so cute!)   We got an alligator with red LED eyes to keep them out the rest of the summer.  Never have to use the eyes or float it in the pool, just set it on the side looking like it is about to slide into the pool

Brass Etching
Been out on the patio playing in the ferric chloride this morning. Picked-up some dextrin coated toner transfer paper and wanted to give it a test run. The toner transfer worked well, but it's still a bit cold for the etching solution (very slow etch).
