Potato salad and more!

Sometimes some of the best times are those events that happen spontaneously with no advance planning. Such was the case early this evening. One of the RV campers here in the park left this morning so suddenly there was an empty RV site on our end of the park directly across from our trailer. Someone suggested that we should have a cookout on the empty pad and before long several of our friends were preparing snacks and drinks, bringing chairs and setting up a grill for burgers. Two of us expropriated a large round table from the clubhouse, rolled it over to the site and set it up for a serving table. Beginning around four o’clock we started in on the snacks and drinks followed by cheeseburgers with all the works including sliced tomatoes, two kinds of beans, pasta salad and Carol Babcock made some of the best potato salad that I have ever eaten. My willpower completely failed me, as I couldn’t resist going back for seconds of that.
And just about then Don Dingman started dishing out bowls of ice cream, which we topped with an assortment of goodies such as nuts, pineapple, banana chunks, crumbled brownies, and chocolate and caramel syrup.
What a wonderful time we had, even if it was a diet buster. It was one of those days that you hate to see end.
Finally as if to punctuate the evening we witnessed this glorious sunset
