Alex leaves in a week....wow! We had a 'get together' last night that was loud, crowded, and fun! The Webers came (4 people), the Fishers came (3 people), the Derbys were here (3 people - Rosemary was off camping), the Blands (2 people), Mom (1 person), Margene (1 person) and our family (4 people). 18 people! That's a lot for the house - good thing it wasn't 105 - people were able to hang out outside, even though it was warmish. (Ralph got overheated while cooking.) We had hamburgers, pasta salad (not much left of that - it must have been a hit!) baked beans, fruit salad and spinach salad. Pat brought the best lemon bars....and left some here for us, too.
