It was good.. the end of this second first trilogy of the Xmen movies. Went deep into cannon for some things, skipped right over for others. Neil , not a comic book reader, liked it for starting out telling who everyone was...
Then went over to dinner at our pals Don and Susan, where I forgot to take any photos. AND I found out that today was May 31st and that we have no guests or nothing at all to do tomorrow , which made me very happy. Rest of the week not so much ....
Best decision ever in moving the party a day, Monday was just perfect.
A little bit of a mix up with some folk -those who couldn't make it Sunday did for Monday , so only a few less people than expected
Id say about 40 people, maybe a little more.
Never really did a count
and people were all spread out anyway.
I started cooking 5:30 / 6... is
Zweigles Exploding Red and White Hots
really they POP open when you cook them , giving lots of crusty burned bits
which folks up here just love. Im not such a fan
Kiddie Pool Full of Salads
- Baked Potato
- Carrot w/vanilla yogurt and cardamom
- Regular Cole Slaw
- Pasta, Pesto, Peas and Parsley
- Mixed Chopped Salad ( everything left over from cooking with lots of cucumber - started out life as Tabouli, but someone forgot to buy Bulgar ...)
Nitra was worn out!
Folks just ate , chatted, really - it was a nice party
people just devoured these.. the pan was close to full...
Stop to pee on Karin's iris.
Peonies about to pop!
Get scared by big fire trucks and start back for home....
But coaxed back to the parade!
Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts
High School ( or middle school , not sure ) Band
I think the Mendon or maybe Honeoye Falls Fireman's band
There was a convertible full of older veterans ...
vintage fire trucks
Just look at that blue sky!
Then back home after a brief but very nice small town parade.

Totally made the right decision about the party - today was a most stormy day. This radar capture is early in the day - just as things were starting to fire up - thunder boomers and downpours came one after the other all afternoon and into the night.

Best laid plans and all.
The party is/was tomorrow - but we will still be in the same unstable weather pattern , so Neil made the executive decision to move it to MONDAY afternoon. Hope we got the word out to everyone who had planned on coming - I ll be simi ready tomorrow with some drinks and snacks just in case.

Did nothing but work in the yard today, mowing, raking, etc. Getting ready for Neil's big extravaganza come Sunday. It is hot - Georgia hot, so rare for up here , and not great for the party. These delicate northern folk wilt easily.
Will be a little bit of a hassle with me and the food for 50 or 60 people - but I will figure something out. Just hope we dont get a thunderstorm.

But there was a tower of pink flowers at Wegmans this afternoon
And Honeoye Falls is all decked out in full red white and blue
I took dinner over to a St Johns family who.. I dont even know, needed dinner....
Then late this afternoon took Koda over for a romp with Fletcher
Things will be back to boring normal soon .
