Social Butterflies

Last night we had a wonderful time at the home of friends Terry and Boo. Terry grew up on the Chesapeake Bay and they still have a home back east. Terry had fresh crab flown in and he made the most awesome crab cakes, they were outstanding. The rest of the meal came from their garden, yum!

Emmi got to go along and she was so good, keeping everyone entertained out on the deck and then sleeping like an angel while we had dinner. The meal was great and the conversation stimulating to say the least, some folks had quiet the political discussions!

Our neighbor's center pivot irritating system which is located in a field above our house. The pivot is programmed to stop when it gets to our house and start again once it clears our house. We must have had a power surge the other day, my flowers on the deck got an extra watering and believe me, that pivot has one heck of a spray of water!

Three sandhill cranes in flight.
Michael worked on the motor home again today and I did this and that. Nat came up for lunch and we had steaks on the grill and fresh corn on the cob. For dessert I tried out a new recipe for strawberry shortcake that has flour and cornmeal--they were delicious!
About 3pm, friends Jim and Kathy showed up for their computer lesson. Neither of them has ever operated a computer, all of a sudden decided to join the rest of us and had me order a Dell laptop and a Canon camera like mine. I've never taught someone from scratch how to use a computer so it was a learning experience for me too. I didn't have to whap their knuckles with a ruler, they are quick learners!
A busy Sunday but enjoyable!
