It was a day-and-night difference compared to the pub the night before.
We arrived at about six and the hosts were finishing up the last bit of tidying-up.
It was calm and peaceful.
Kids were fishing from shore.
Mosquitoes were non-existent...perhaps due to the dry weather and the breeze coming off the lake.
The firewood was dry and burned with little smoke. The fire-master kept the fire medium sized and added wood as needed.
One guest showed up with dogs and they were very well behaved. The Aussie-shepherd mix showed us his trick of putting the loop-end of his leash in his mouth and then calmly parading around as if he were in a show-ring.
Food was plentiful even if there were some LP flow malfunctions with the BBQ.
If adult beverages were consumed they were consumed in moderation or there were designated drivers.
I must have behaved because Mrs ERJ brought me back home.
The downside is that I stayed up past my bedtime.
Much better than your last nocturnal adventure. I like those kind myself. Nice that you have a wife that gets invited and takes you along. ---kenReplyDelete
Sounds like a great party!ReplyDelete
ERJ, we are traveling and yesterday we crossed over from the country to the city. My blood pressure and nervousness immediately shot up. Large congregations of people - especially if ill mannered or wild -simply do nothing for me anymore (as if they ever did).ReplyDelete
Those are the outings I like, pubs, taverns, bars, crowds and rowdy places and people do not interest me. I enjoy quiet and civility.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great time!ReplyDelete
Sounds great. Jim.ReplyDelete
