This past weekend, we were invited to the neighborhood Holiday Gathering at Barney and Jackie's house. They do this every year after Thanksgiving and again on Christmas Day.
It was a chilly, moist day - but the fire and company made it pleasant!
Here is Jackie ringing the bell to call us to attention.
Barney cooking scrumptious hushpuppies (fried in fresh peanut oil...yum!)
Big Al and Pat - they aren't as mean as they look!!
Jackie stirring the Brunswick Stew
Friends warming by the fire - Pat, Dick, Lindy and Duane.
