Ten Logansport, Indian? Pharos-Tribune News ^d Views By Mary D'Andrea The first holiday of the summer season usually turns out to be a refreshing, 'if somewhat upsetting, day. Everybody loves a holiday in mid-week. It's like having two 'weekends in one week and Monday's hangover on Thursday morning. (But just think, tomorrow is Friday already.) ACTIVITIES ON MEMORIAL DAY ranged from doing too -much to doing absolutely nothing at all. For those who lacked , the courage or strength to battle their way to the "fabulous 500," there was a pleasant alternative ... a cookout in the backyard > . . the first of the season. And the "chef of the day" means dear old Dad. ; Tuesday evening probably found many work-worn hubbies searching the garage or basement for that replica of stone-age man's existence . . . the outdoor charcoal grill. This innocent little contraption comes in all sizes and styles from the elaborate models that even havo shelves for seasonings ••to the modest two-wheeler with a tiny grate. (All models do an equally fine job at burning food.) . , DAD LOVES THIS CHARCOAL GRILL . . . it's his baby . . . . he polished it .:•-. . he dashed to the store to buy special lighter PI fluid to guarantee a blaze with the first match, asbestos lining 'for the bottom'.of the grill, long pronged forks with movable handles, gloves for handling the forks and various-sized pronged 'instruments, a coverall apron, a chef's hat (just for laughs, he • said) ... but he had to go back to the store—to get the charcoal. Then he announced to his' family, "We're eating out tomor- Tow." . , Mom jumped for joy. "We'll go to that nice Italian restaurant or maybe, that other place." Dad gave her a look. "We're eating outside in the yard, is what I meant. And I'm doing the cooking." Mom had a feeling of impending disaster. She remembered last year. But she smiled and said, "Yes, dear, but you're on your own." (She is seriously thinking of packing up the children and fleeing to her mother's for the day, for safety sake.) BUT MOST OF THE MEMORIAL DAY COOKS probably fared pretty well. There weren't too many fire calls. Dad got up early (10 a.m. is early on a holiday), tuned in the big 500 (he performed a public service by putting the radio outside.so the whole neighbzorhood could hear Ihe race) then he iced down some beer, got the grill ready to go and relaxed for a while. After the race, he donned his apron and chef's hat, gathered his gloves, prongs, forks, lighter fluid and charcoal, matches/foil paper, asbestos and ventured, into •his 1 domain; (Everyone is forbidden within ten feet of the grill until he gets the fire lit because sometimes his language is not for small ears ... or big '.. ears either.) . ;• But the fire was pretty successful and Dad timed the cooking • perfectly, carefully turning the meat for even browning. He got • r & deep sense of satisfaction when Mom complimented'him on the • results. Dad really knows how to 'cook hot dogs. (Take heart, Mom, there are only 14 Sundays and two holidays left. Just be thankful the kids like hot dogs.) ' • Bye for now.
