Despite a bit of a mix-up on where we would have dinner (our first choice was closed), we rallied and ended up just down the road. Green balloons and all.
Eleven of us attended, with several more who could not make it. But I think we had such a good time, I’m am positive we will do it again. Maybe even a potluck at my house (oh, don’t hold me to that…)
I’ll let everyone identify themselves as they will. Three of us are missing – me, Czanne and a friend of mine who tagged along. She had enough fun she’s already thinking up her Balloon-Juice handle, but was camera shy.
This was more fun than I can detail here – good conversation, good food and terrific people – each and everyone of them. And these folks are very, very intelligent and I could have listened to their stories for several more hours.
Surprises? Two of us are (unbeknownst before dinner) literally next door neighbors, one of us speaks Mandarin, one of us has met DougJ, lots of military service (Go Navy!) and I’m actually a 75 year old dude named Kevin. [[One of these is not true.]]
Thanks to Scamp Dog for handling all the details!!
Consider this your evening open thread. What’s going on tonight, anything fun?
P.S. Someone at that table owes me a bread recipe and I owe someone a whole wheat biscuit recipe. ;-) email me and we’ll exchange those details. whats4dinnersolutions at live dot com
