Autumn Splender

As far as weather goes, well im pretty lucky to be living in Western New York, at least this fall.The weather has been outstanding. Here it is the middle of October and the  temp is 77 degrees. and sunny. so ive been trying to take full advantage.  Not only is this  a colorful time of year, but if you love pig roasts and clam bakes..tis the season, and that why i say autumn splendor:)

because we all know whats to follow….. all that white stuff, which i am not a fan of. so  here we go. oh and PS if you thought you were going to see colorful leaves…. im sorry 🙂

one of the best things about this time of year……  people tend to do pig roasts and clam bakes..2 of my most favorite things……

people put hot sauce and butter on theirs.. not me just let me at ’em.
this is our friend who invited us.. hes friends with the people who put this event on every year, no charge!!!
there were people from all walks of life there, but they all had one thing in common….


this woman…  actually made all that sausage, and smoked them. and yes they were deeeelish.
this is the hubby of the woman above, its not their part either, but he was help with the clams. nothing like good friends.


there was even live entertainment. and they were awesome.


i made a friend. 6 week  rescue.
and of course there was plenty of cheer to go around



its almost time.
 these were all shot with my iPhone. .people tend to get a little crazy when they dont know you and your flashing a camera around 🙂
what we were all waiting for … omg… it was deelish !!!
i tried so hard to get a shot of the husband and wife that put this shindig was near impossible, this is the best i could do and they aren’t even standing together, hubby is was over with his hand to his face. almost like he knew i was aiming for him….
they had all kinds of activities for kids. they even had an art table.
and i got  Steves back too… Him and His Wife Amy. If there was ever a prize for being the most gracious Host and Hostess , they would certainly win!!!

if you stopped by, thank you.

  1. I have no idea about clam bakes, sounds fishy to me. 🙂 Hog roasts we do have but only in summer. Which really means never lol. Fab work with the iPhone, funny how people don’t seem to mind being shot with an iPhone but not with a real camera! ❤

    1. Well Fraggy the difference is no one knew they were getting shot with my iPhone:). Lol, so u don’t like shell fish? Geeze back when I was in my late teens, after being out all night. And everyone wanted to go for the usual breakfast… at 4am. they first had to stop at the local clam shack on the lake so I could get a few dozen clams on the 1/2 shell. Lol….ahh those were the days:). We have been going to pig roasts for the last 10 years. But I only go ..when the weather is decent, Dave always go.
      Thanks for stopping by Fraggy

    1. Besides alllll kinds of food these ” clams” are steamed and they go like wild fire , at least in the parts 🙂 yes , even if u don’t like “fishy foods” there’s still many more things to eat , I’m sure you’d like itHay, I’ve never met anyone who didn’t .


    1. Omg.. that’s a huge seller here, WNY favorite. Even in Buffalo one set of silos is painted to look like a 6 pk. 🙂 it’s such a reg , we forget it’s your beer;)
      Thanks for stopping by Sean.


    1. Now I don’t understand.. why don’t you peeps over there have pig roasts ? And then there’s Fragglerocking my very good buddy, who doesn’t know what a clam is…. I don’t get it. Well believe me I enjoyed both things enough for you both:)))


      1. It looks like the sort of place I would like to spend some time. You’re very lucky.
        I do have happy memories of a ram roast on a childhood holiday to Devon.
        Sadly there’s very little community spirit in my part of the world, with neighbours barely even knowing each others names.
        England really has changed for the worst in the last 30 years!

      2. Ohh that is sad. Much to out
        R surprize this particular pig roast was right in the city, something we haven’t seen since we were little kids, so maybe things are changing.. for the better. I can tell you that no one there was a trump fan.. lol, I did hear plans of moving to Canada :))
