Happy Birthday!

It was a busy day, ending at a double birthday party for a couple of young (at least, younger than I!) friends. This is a community event – age range from just reaching toddlerhood (actually, probably at least one in utero) up to 75-ish, and three generations of at least one family. This is where you use what you have – like the firewood buffet table! Much of the food for the pot-luck is locally grown organic – many attending have impressive gardens. Games were played – volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, a croquet maze, and hide-and-seek for the youngest. I was mildly amused to note that nine out of ten men wear beards in this crowd, at least if they are old enough to grow facial hair. I left a party still going strong, although games where one had to see what the ball was doing had pretty much ended; many of us elders were drifting away.

  2. Love the firewood buffet table! I bet there are some potential ,nice, little, individual, tree stump tables for two, for intimate twosomes to dine at that are just laying about cut out of the trees that the firewood came from. Looks like a lovely time was had by all.
