The deck was ready.
Both ends of it. Max approved.
And once the guests began arriving, the men did what men do ....
Sit away and on the most uncomfortable of furniture, I might add! There were comfy chairs and a swing, but no, they pick a hard wood bench and a folding chair! Men!
The women .... smart! Clustered around the chips and dips!
OK, there was one smart man. Allan joined the women, near the food. Boy ain't no dummy! Guacamole, chips, veggies and dip, wine. Yum!
And we talked and ate and drank until it was dinner time. Three kinds of ribs, potato salad, deviled eggs, a hominy and cheese dish, pickles, olives, jalapeños and more. Yum, yum! Then we talked and ate and drank until the dessert was served. A rich, moist chocolate cake and a creamy cheesecake with fresh blueberries on top. Yum, yum, yum!!
We talked till around 9:00 and folks began to gather up stuff and head home.
Life can't be much better, I think.
