I hope you all had a wonderful Independence Day. (Or for my Canadian friends, Canada Day on the 1st!) For some it is back to work today. For others it's vacation. Whatever you do, I hope it's been a good day.
Yesterday my brother and sister-in-law opened the doors of their new home for a cookout get-together. About 15 or so people showed up and we had so much fun! So much food! Great conversations! Getting to meet new people and catch up with old friends. It was perfect. Except for the HOT temperatures outside. At least there was air conditioning inside. I stayed out as long as I could take it, but when I started feeling sick I went inside. They had their TV on the Sci Fi Channel and there was a "Twilight Zone" marathon on. Joe and I sat down on the sofa and before we knew it we were drawn into the shows. One after another. We didn't mean to be rude, but... it was the "Twilight Zone"!
Surprisingly there wasn't very much traffic on the roads and so we made good time traveling. About 40-45 minutes each way.
So having said all of this... here are the pictures of the day. Most are mine. A few are borrowed from my friend, Marion, and my sister, Elaine. Borrowed only because theirs turned out better or they were at a better angle than I. I hope you enjoy them.
Larry was the chef extraordinaire! His burgers and hot dogs were so good. Kim set up the bar with the salads: potato, pasta and fruit, and wonderful corn on the cob.
Joe and Marion. I told them they looked like a flag.
Rich the comic.
Joe, Larry and Elaine. You can see how sunny it was.
Me and Joe.
Elaine and Marion.
Another one of me and Joe.
Kim. Our wonderful hostess.
At one point she took over for Larry at the grill.
Rich and Marion.
Larry and Kim have a beautiful yard.
After awhile it just got too hot and we moved inside.
This is Schnitzel. He was the star of the day.
The three siblings: Elaine, me and Larry.
Marilyn, Kim's mother. What a sweet lady.
My nephew, Terry, and his girlfriend, Gianna.
Marion was so lucky to get a picture of Callie. She hid from us all day. I never got a shot of their other cat Bandit even though he sat with Joe and put his fur all over Joe's shirt.
Are you all still with me? Sorry for the picture overload. As I said, it was a great day.
And with that I have to go to bed. I'm really tired tonight. It's been a long day. Until later...
