We met Jim’s Mom, Ann, for lunch at Nomiki’s Plaka, a Greek restaurant. This time, I did not eat goat. Jim and I love getting a gyro with the onion sautéed rather than raw. The 3 of us had a nice visit.
Insert unimportant and boring tasks here.
Party time! Friends, Carl and Tim threw a Welcome Home party for us! It was awesomely awesome! Some clothes came off here and there which limits the amount of photos I can display. I tried to get everyone to get dressed for the photos but no one would listen.
“People, people. I’m trying to get blog photos and I must keep it clean.”
I was directed to the Lysol. Hmmmph. Sorry readers. I tried.
The weather didn’t cooperate some of the time. It was unfortunate that the rain would get us wet while swimming in the pool.
The food? What a spread. Laurie of Laurie and Pearl masterly crafted her deliciously awesome lasagna for the event. 3 trays. Tim picked up breadsticks and salad from Olive Garden. Yum! The munchies? Pickles, cheese, chips, dips, veggie platter, etc.
The drinks? Mike and Dave brought their margarita machine. Dave and David kept a constant flow of frozen drinks going for all to enjoy. It was sweet of Dave to go out of his way to get the ingredients for peach that I loved so well at Lumberjack’s. More sweetness? Tim called before the party to tell me he looked for the peach ingredients but couldn’t find them at his end of town.
I will tell you that a newcomer to the group is John. In a couple of pool parties in our absence, John was photographed A LOT. Naturally when I arrived, I capitalized on that and took a ton of photos exclaiming, things like “Oh look, John is standing” or “So dreamy, John is now drinking something.” I think he liked the attention anyways. As we say in gayworld, John knows he’s pretty. OK, with all that said, meet the crew.
