CONGRATULATIONS TO JULY DRAWING WINNERS!
Jo Ellen wins Kathy Kollenburn's gorgeous fused glass bird feeder.
... so we're installing the party for the rest of summer.
We have determined that the Chipotle / Cheddar hot dogs need to be kept in inventory at twice the level of the Cheddar and (!even!) Steakhouse hot dogs, and will willingly comply; that there are children in the world WHO DO NOT KNOW S'MORES, and are moderately appalled and on a mission to fix that immediately; that sending Loree to buy the mustard means you get five kinds of mustard, and are okay with that; that Kathy's double batch of stuffed mushrooms needs to be a triple [and know she's deluding herself and that it's more like quintuple]; that Bernice bakes the best iced homemade carrot muffin you'll ever meet, and shall encourage her to carry on; and that - even when the deviled egg potato salad is left forgotten in the cooler for the first half of the party, it still is gone by the end, so that works out well and we shall leave it in the cooler for half the party again so we don't run out.
Oh, yes, and that Matt does an excellent job at building fires that cook stuff.
Although, for a fireman, he doesn't do a very good job of taking a step back when he opens the barbeque.
However the good news is he had beautiful healthy color (sort of like a week of twelve hour days on the beach) by the end of the evening. And we're keeping him.
