Well, the evening was really wonderful and fun. We had our friends Faith and Ted and their three kids here, My sister-in-law Sara and her boy Connor, Several couples and a few guys from Tom's work at the USCG that work in Grand Haven. It was fun getting to know a few people that I have heard about through Tom talking of them at his work, very nice people indeed.

Life in the service is definitely interesting. It really is neat to see how all these guys get along so well and they have to move every four years. That would be hard, getting to know people and making friends and then they have to leave.

I had a cook out first and then we got the fire going. Some guys were messing around with a football. Some were jumping on the trampoline at various times. We had camper pies, some were filled with cherry or apple pie filling, some were pizza pies and of course the old stand by of smores. Chips galore and veggies.

A few people never knew what camper pies were. So, they had fun making them and I think one guy must have had six of them. What a riot. I don't know for sure, but I did see him eat three and enjoyed every bite making comments throughout. He is right, they are good!

Well, it is late and I am kinda tired so I am going to sign off for tonight.

Enjoy you day!
