Ah, the great day has arrived. The cleaning (by me!) and the cooking is all done. An armada of tables and chairs have been arrayed with plates and silverware. Glaciers of ice have been procured and cold beverages are resting on them. The grass is manicured (sort of) and the hounds have been sent away for the day. All that is needed are the guests and their appetites. Frivolity and bom homme will abound and never will be heard a discouraging word. But that means this will be a very slow day on the site until much later. So my faithful readers I leave you to your own devices. Enjoy what is touted to be an ideal summer day.
