Dinner at Fred's House


 

Well, it has been a long time coming, but Fred has seen his way clear to inviting all our friends up to his house in Van Alstyne for dinner. We both came up here last night when I returned from Pittsburgh, and we spent all day today, Saturday, getting the house straightened up and the dinner prepared. So tonight Fred is partially paying back all the times that we have been at everyone else's house.


It was a simple dinner; we cooked pasta and sauce, some vegetables, garlic bread and salad. We also had an impromptu birthday cake in honor of Ron Drew's birthday, which was yesterday. I've captured all the attendees in the picture at left. Around the table, from left, are Fred, Lou, Chris, Jay and Ron Mathis. Sitting at the bar are Ron Drew (back) and Leroy. Even though it is October, and pretty cool out, Leroy is in his standard attire- shorts.

I took a fair number of pictures, but only some of them turned out passably, and I have put thumbnails for them below. You can view the full-size picture by clicking on the thumbnail:

I took a couple of movies while everyone was eating cake. Although the light was low, I guess they turned out OK, except that the dialogue, taken out of context, may not make a whole lot of sense. Anyway, you can watch those two movies with the players below:

Everyone had a good time, I think, and it was good of Fred to make the effort to get everyone up there.
