A Visit from Smokey the Bear

Today has been just full of highlights starting with 5 loads of laundry in my attempt to start packing for Jamaica and culminating with delicious smoked barbecue ribs homemade by Chef Frank.

In between, there was the visit by the fire department - 3 huge engines, as well as Frank's volunteer firefighter supervisor - because some neighbors and a couple driving by from New York decided our house must certainly be on fire. Why else would there be so much smoke? Well, when Frank smokes ribs - he really smokes ribs!

You know what the funniest thing is? For all the times when I am just trying to steam something in my kitchen and the fire alarm goes off, this time the yard and the house were filled with smoke (and firemen) and the alarm was quiet as a mouse! Go figure!
