12 October 2009

The Ice Cream social was a great success.

I had things mostly set up by about 1:30.

(Note the puppies in the pen at the left)

Then it was just a question of waiting for the folks to arrive.   Ashley arrived early so she could give Eliza her vaccinations and she took the "down" time to give Dexter a manicure.

The first neighborhood guy arrived right on the dot at 2 p.m. (he was also the last to leave--and had four cups of ice cream!).  He brought a bowl of sliced strawberries and a container of hot fudge sauce.  Yum!  Then others started straggling in.

Even Don Saylor, Davis's Mayor Pro Tem, showed up, and had a chat with Ned, who also came, with Marta.

Don also took this picture to post to Facebook, along with all the photos he took at all the other neighborhood parties he attended, from ours at 2 p.m. until after dark.

The puppies were a big hit.

This little  girl in particular loved all the puppies, but especially loved Dexter (who was more her size than the others)

At the height, we may have had about 20 people, which was about double the number who came last year.

I ran out of vanilla ice cream, but had plenty of chocolate, strawberry and blackberry left over at the end of the day.  I feel very good about how it all went and think that we went out on a real high.

At the end of the day, Megan, from the SPCA, came by
with Toby, who needed a new cast put on his leg, which
Ashley did before they left here.
