My dinner party seemed to be enjoyed by all. I was able to sit and eat with my guests, always a pleasure. That is really the best part, the good company. It was a leisurely meal, and we spent more than two hours at the table, then wandered down to the river where a few of us enjoyed cigars, a gift from Jim Curlee.
Jim was also the photographer. As usual, I have pictures of food before the meal, and then of the mess and cleanup afterwards, but during the meal, the camera is the last thing on my mind.
Here are Jim's pics from the dinner.
