And we thought we were finished . . .

Posted by pandjlocke on Monday, December 1, 2008

With the church Wednesday night dinners. The past 4 years my wife and I have cooked dinner for our small church on Wednesday nights for the people who have a  mid-week Bible study. Two weeks ago was supposed to be our last one for the year (we usually take December off for the busy Holiday season). It seems that some folks didn't finish their programs in time so we have been asked to do one more dinner. So we figgered that St. Louis style ribs would be the way to wrap up another year. So here I sit, writing this, smelling like a burnt Alder tree. Been smoking those ribs most of the day. Yep, 15 full racks of ribs smoked ever so slowly in the ol' Iron Pig (my smoker) now tucked away in the fridge just waiting for braising on Wednesday. There's something about practicing banjo while the BBQ is roastin'. Banjos & barbeques; doesn't get much better!

Picking the old banjo while the BBQ is ah cooking sound like it outht to be part of a song. Hummmm... Maybe there is a song writer among those ribs. Smile

 We probably would bump into each other as we traveled down that long, twisty, noisy hallway in the house we call family. I'm descended from a long line of New England rascals first propigated by an English sea captain John Miles Locke on the coast of New Hampshire in the early 1600's. He didn't carry a banjo (I don't think they were around then) but he probably had a beat up lute stuffed in his sea trunk when he came ashore. It's good to run into another Locke who's pluckin" and strummin'. I haven't brought my banjo (a beautiful handmade Dana Fligg long neck) into church. Some folks have difficulties praising the Lord with stringed instruments. (Even though scriptures mentions David a hummin' and a strummin'). But I do play my guitars while cantoring. God provides the music. We just have to sing it.  Let's talk some more. And save me a rib.
