Well, the sun shone, the charcoal didn’t refuse to get involved and burnt bright and white, the food was plentiful and the alcohol flowed (allegedly). A good time was had by all, including those of us who fell asleep on the grass afterwards (but we’re blaming that on Tim’s vodka, which seemed to disappear remarkably quickly). Big thank you to the residents who brought along the delicious desserts (I can testify that they were all superb, having sampled every one personally, and some of them twice – well, it would have been rude not to) and an especially big thank-you to Pamela, whose day-before shopping judged the food down to the last two burgers exactly. Probably why she was charged with portion control.

See you all next year. Same place, same time.

And here’s a song.                        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLs09J_x6-c
