Summer Fun - Barbecues

Just thought I would share some great vintage images of one of America's favorite summer pastimes today. First up - this vintage Durkee advertisement featuring Gene Kelly (I loved him, too, by the way!):
Outdoor cooking at it's best- with the family:
Chicken on the grill - looks good!
On the patio:

And don't forget: with your barbecue, "Have a Coke and a smile!"

On the patio looks good, and looks just like your patio. Country Living just had a photo of some chairs like that, with neat fabrics on them. Love T

You just KNOW I dig these totally idealistic images! Did ANYBODY really EVER live like that? They're all just so happy and attractive...

Brings back soooo many memories! Somehow, I think food may have even tasted better then...but of course that was when Mom was the cook.
