    Had some company today.

    This afternoon we had a few people over for a backyard barbecue.

    This is Betty and Bruce Page, who live across town from us.

    The whole group (except Betty, who didn't quite make it into the picture), David, Mike Candelaria (a woodworker friend), Dan Summers, one of David's co-workers and a chair-maker and turner, Jesse and Inta Cloud, and Bruce Page (just his back).

    We noshed on grilled chicken, hamburgers, tater salad, and other munchies. It was actually cool enough in the yard under the trees to be enjoyable. Thanks for coming, everyone.

    I envy you guys that can get together like that, I get to see Alex sometimes, but the woodworker get togethers are few and far between here.

    Looks like a good time was had by all!

    As a former ABQ homeboy, I wish I could have been there. Looks like a nice afternoon to be outside. I'm surprised you got Jesse out of the mountains, and Bruce out of the Heights.

    It was a good time. Hope I get invited back in spite of the pools of drool I must have left on Dave and Nancy's shop floor! You should see the cabinets Dave made for the house, too. Way cool!

    Thanks again Nancy!

    I'll second that!
    I noticed that they had cleaned up my drool from my last visit.
