There is a lodge down the road called the OutPost and they offer their guests the option of preparing meals for them - they also serve the public with reservations.  Ron and Mary organized the dinner for Fathers' Day this past Sunday and it was a good evening and a delicious meal of turkey and ham and all the trimmings.  I snuck in to take a picture of our hosts before the dinner in their kitchen.  There was Anne, her son Jaime, Jim and our server, Gary.  That's a picture of Jim in the chef's hat as he made the rounds after the dinner.  It is a beautiful old lodge that is very welcoming to guests.  It is also a BYOB establishment so Brent made sure to bring a few extra bottles of wine.  I packed my vodka Tonic for the meal but drank water most of the meal.  It was a grand evening with great conversations going on all down the table and I think we overstayed our welcome after the meal.  But Anne and Jim just joined in our conversations and made us feel welcome - no matter how late we stayed!!
Gary, our server, was very attentive to our every need and never let us ask for anything - he had it right there before we even knew we needed it.  Not bad for someone not really trained in this line of work.  But just a local who needed work and was accommodated by the OutPost.
Our next get together is this Friday at the Thessalon Legion for the fish fry - the last one before the summer.  They take a much needed break in July and August and then start it up again in September.  I bet it is going to be packed.  But we will be there - at our special table set up in the basement close to the bar.  You can't miss us!!  See you there...
