THE BIG TABLE
17 October, 2011
Jeri came to town for the weekend. She had some frequent flyer miles available and decided that she doesn't spend enough time with her grandmother, so just flew in on Friday and will fly out Monday morning. She thought we could all get together for dinner on Sunday, including Walt's brother and his wife.
I agreed to make a lasagna, Jeri would make garlic bread, Olivia would bring a salad and my mother would provide dessert. Ned made his bread dip for hors d'oeuvre. He and Marta also brought The Bouncer.
No way could I bring any of our dogs with us and have them be that well behaved!
In order to have dinner, my mother had to have help putting two leaves into her big, heavy, round table. How many people does it take to add leaves to a table? (apparently everybody and the dog, except the one taking pictures!)
But eventually it did get pulled apart, leaves inserted, table set, and we had a fun dinner.
And when dinner was over, the technogeeks sat around and compared various gadgets.
Then it was time to say goodbye to Jeri again, as she prepares to fly
back to Boston. It was a short visit, but sweet!
