Blogger’s Unite!

Recently Blogger Betsy contacted Blogger Big Dude about getting together so she and her husband George could meet Blogger Big Daddy Dave and my better half Laurie… Betsy has been on a campaign to meet fellow bloggers…

Big Dude and his wife Beverly set a date and provided a feast for us all on their party dock.  Both Betsy and Big Dude (Larry) have previously blogged on our gathering of East Tennessee Bloggers.
Betsy’s blog site can be found at and Big Dude’s site is at
In any case, I also took some photos of our gathering…

Betsy and George together on Larry and Beverly’s party dock… Betsy’s blog focuses on nature, flowers, waterfalls, travel and each other!

Laurie took this photo of Big Dude (Larry), Betsy and me (Big Daddy Dave).  Note the wine and the top of the Tabasco bottle…life is good!

In this photo…from the left, we have Pat (Bev’s sister), Laurie (turned away from the camera), Big Dude, Beverly, Betsy and George. 

Big Dude’s blog is focused on food, “RVing” and family.  FYI… He smokes the best BBQ Ribs in East Tennessee!  

This is Madison, Larry and Beverly’s granddaughter.  She is growing up fast and is becoming a very pretty and bright young woman…

OK… This little collage pictures the food that we enjoyed during our little Blogger get together. Larry and Bev provided ABT’s/Stuffed Jalapenos, Larry’s great BBQ pork ribs, pulled pork, coleslaw and baked beans.  Larry also made some terrific Chipotle BBQ Sauce which I put on everything…including the ABT’s!  We provided the Tres Leche cake which we purchased at Costco.  For more about the food at our little party, including some recipes, you can just go to

Just click on any of the photographs to enlarge them…

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Take Care, Big Daddy Dave


  1. It is always something special to meet fellow bloggers I think. Your little reunion looks like you had some great food. I took a quick look at Big Dude’s blog and I need to go back to check his recipes. I have not seen that Tres Leche cake at Costco – what did you think of it?

  2. How fun is that! Looks like you all had a great time...and the food looks mighty good ^_^

  3. We did have fun that day, didn't we? Seems like you caught me with my mouth full in that one around the table.... HA HA --so typical!!!!!

    We are headed south this week--to visit family... Hope you enjoy that latest trip.

  4. Hi Betsy and George. It's nice to met you. What a feast at Larry's.

  5. Thanks Dave for the post and the shout out.
