Unfortunately I did not get pics of kristoffer and his bride to be. Sorry Kris
He was a gracious host. Food was great and the friendships formed and rekindled was awesome.

Great pics Rick! When I look at myself, I think I would look great if it were 1977 :)

Thanks for posting,

No pics of Kris and his fiance???? I’m startin’ to wonder if that Kris guy really exists. Just kiddin’, Rick. I didn’t really give anybody too much of an opportunity to get a picture of me. Not that I was dodging the camera, but I was too stubborn/stupid to let anybody help me out in the kitchen. I’m really kickin’ myself in the butt for that one. I really missed out on a lot of the early stuff. Either way, I’m happy that everybody seemed to enjoy the event.
Here’s a shot of Steve, Mike, Dustin, David, Rick, Bill and food, food, food…. Along with the business end of Belle, our dog that likes to play ball.

I know, Rick, I know:-( I’m glad that I finally broke down and handed the burgers off to Dustin. I was thinking that I should have written one of those DIY shows to help me get the back yard in order before the BBQ. That way I wouldn’t have been working on the STILL unfinished patio ‘til 11pm the night before and could have had all of my food already prepped. They may have even gotten back to me since it was for a woodworker’s event. Would have been good publicity for LumberJocks too.
Either way, I dunced it up on my end. I’m just glad that you guys and your wives made it out to tie the whole thing together.
I’ll be at the next one for sure!!!! And if anybody turns me down when I offer to help, I’m going to grab them by the collar and shake ‘em while I tell them the story of what happened when I turned down help from the guest:-)

I don’t know how, but Bill was cut out of the pic that I posted. Sorry, Bill.

-- Cheers and God Bless
