A pictorial review:
Our Gracious Hosts : Big Jim and Sue and Will (Sanna's Mom and Dad and nephew)
Sanna's Dave - he is tall and quiet and is a drummer in a band
Said Pow - Dave's Band
Sanna's Sister Johanna and Sue
Jimmy, Big Jim and Uncle Al - Jimmy is Sanna's older brother and I don't mind admitting that I had a minor crush on him growing up.
The food was on the picnic table - pulled pork sandwiches, chicken for tacos, corn on the cob, salad, cookies, endless amounts of food as only Sue can do.
The kegerator was doing a booming business.
The satiated guests were sprawled on the lawn listening to the live music when suddenly there was a commotion on the stage. The porch had torn away from its moorings against the side of house. The band had very nearly brought down the house!
All hands were called to save the kegerater, which was listing severely to the left.
This brought an effective end to the music portion of the evening.
Shortly thereafter the keg was kicked. In an ordinary family, this would have caused the party to come to a crashing halt. But Sanna's family are seasoned partyers so they hauled out the bottled beer and kept on drinking.
At that point, I called it quits and hied myself home with yet another Hot August Night under my belt.
