Happy Mother's Day!  I had a lovely day, even though my daughter felt too ill to make it.  My youngest brother had a cookout and we all got together and ate and hung out and (we're Irish) drank.  Here's me and my mom.

Debbie (my brother Shawn's girlfriend) cooked lemon pepper chicken, ribs, and oxtail, which is one of the native dishes of Haiti, where she's from.  I brought potato salad, baked beans, and broccoli coleslaw and rolls.  There were also devilled eggs, home made sweet potato pie, and beer.  Lots and lots of beer.

Here are my two brothers Scott and Shawn.

Here's Debbie, getting everything ready. 

And lastly, here are my two brothers, me, and my mom all together.

I'm not sure why everyone wore stripes except me, but that's how it turned out.  I missed my daughter a lot, but I talked to her on the phone and hopefully we'll get together once she feels better.
