As my brother noted, the shindig came and went. We had the company for only around 3 hours, but those hours were kind of like a riot only with less violence and better food. 10 adults and a baby managed to consume almost all of the 36 deviled eggs (even with one adult abstaining), many hamburgers and hot dogs, etc. I actually did a fair bit of food prep, having made the deviled eggs, bean salad and preparing a chocolate log for dessert. Yum! I just got a call from James a few seconds ago, and I think I’ll be heading out to the beach for some fun time and cavorting. In the month since we’ve moved here, we haven’t been to the beach once. This is the value of having folks visit you – getting your ass up and out to do the fun things available in your area.
