Two nights ago, while talking on the phone, Lou Ann asked me what was going on here on the island. Frankly there wasn't much to report. It's been a quiet time. There hadn't even been a pot luck dinner for weeks. The next day Amy told me that Paula & Michael Schramel had planned a pot luck for Thursday evening.
As usual, I arrived to find a house full of people laughing and telling stories on each other. Teenagers and middle schoolers were off in another room tormenting each other. Lachlan was passed around the room so everyone could ooh & aah over him. The kitchen table was covered with dishes of beans, chicken, deviled eggs, broccoli salad, macaroni, homemade breads, delicious desserts, and much more. There was beer, wine, iced tea, & soft drinks. The fireplace was crackling.
It was good to get together on a wet and windy winter night.
