Techie Tuesday - Grillboy

Barb and I have been trying, now and then, to do a little post on some of the less-technical things we new bloggers run into. The simple things that frustrate us. In one of Barb's posts this week someone asked how to save a copy of your template. She gave them a quick, simple answer. My answer is a bit different - I have a "test blog" which I'll explain in more detail in a few weeks. For now, I have something on a different level, "technically" speaking.

My son, Dan, phoned me last night. He said he was grilling. I told him I didn't know they had a grill. He said they'd seen one at Target for 75% off. Only problem was it was pink - Barbie pink. Hot pink. At their apartment they are not allowed to grill on the little patios. I guess with the Texas heat and lack of rain, you don't want to be burning down any buildings whipping up supper. If you want to grill, you have to sit on the lawn outside your little patio. He said he didn't think it was worth the extra money to get a black one. So they bought hot pink. His Dad is the griller in our family; he's the griller in his. So technically speaking, this is his pink grill.

Today I spoke with my daughter-in-law, Janae. She and I were talking about Dan grilling last night and I told her I thought it must have looked funny. If Janae had been the one grilling it would have been the perfect picture. She's one of the most girly girls I've ever met. I don't know how many shoes or purses she has, but it's a lot. Her makeup drawer is amazing. Dan, on the other hand, is 6'3", hairy, big old shoulders, that nice square, very male jaw, and size 14 feet to go with the rest of him. There's nothing sissy about that boy. (Except that he used to be an honorary brownie but that's a family secret so we won't go there). The idea of him, sitting on his lawn, with this little, hot pink grill - it just cracked me up. When Janae told me she had captured it on film and would forward it to me - to share with all my blogging friends - whooohoo, did she get brownie points or what (on top of the ones Dan earned way back when...oh yeah, those were badges...).

So here's a techie grilling - all 6'3" of him, Barbie pink grill and his laptop. Oblivious to how he may have looked to anyone passing by. What's not to love about it! By the way, 75% off was I believe $5...in case your man is wanting one. I hear they have a few left.
