When I think about “Camping,” our prompt for today, I only really have a couple of memories. I remember camping with my cousin in a tent on a fishing trip with my grandparents, and then there’s a flash forward to
I must say that your hotdog looks a great deal more appealing than the ones cooked by my son-in-law yesterday for father’s day. It was rather on the black side and required a large helping of mustard to make it eatable. As in camping cookouts or often more about the company than the food.
Your hot dog and chips look tasty! I’ve never had too many interests in common with most of my friends and family, mostly doing a lot of things I really didn’t care to do because everyone else did. The internet was a godsend for me – I finally found my like-minded souls!
