Hiking Potluck 10-14-18

This morning I was shocked to see a horde of locusts heading up the drive to Kerr Manor, stomachs grumbling with hunger. Wait, it wasn't locusts. It was the Ashland Hiking Group, bent on devouring all before them. Dr Mike made a noble effort to direct traffic, with the result that no injuries were suffered. Perhaps with some chagrin as the ER is in his blood. 

My groupie Diane held court by the fireplace, using the excuse of her broken leg to avoid manual labor. Fortunately the dynamic trio of your obedient servant, Jeff, "Sausage Man", Wyatt, and his much better half, Roseanne, were hard at work in the kitchen. The assembled masses absorbed 5 dozen eggs and some 6 dozen of Taylor's breakfast sausages, as well as a 20 pound bag's worth of French fries. Did I mention the demise of some 80 cups of coffee. A thank you to those who brewed new pots of our exclusive Costco blends in our exquisite Mr Coffee machines acquired at enormous expense at BiMart.

While the mayhem continued, dish after dish was presented by the assembled multitude. Seldom has the planet seen such bounty in one place. Unfortunately the tremendous winds kept most indoors but there was a silver lining. Grandson Cameron woke with a tooth out and no tooth fairy as our daughter had forgotten about the wobbly bicuspid. Quick on her feet, she pointed out the window and said that the tooth fairy couldn't land because of the wind and would have to reschedule. It was then that I learned that the 10 cent piece under the pillow in my youth has been replaced by complex Lego models that only a child can assemble. 

Thank you to all who lent a hand and it was wonderful hosting everyone.
