September 6, 2015, Prescott- One of the benefits of being semi-settled is, invitations to gatherings start to pile up. The three-day weekend has brought me to two enormous, well-stocked and well-attended barbecues, yesterday and today, with a third slated for tomorrow.
Last night’s gathering was a birthday party for a long-time friend, belated by two days, for the sake of holding it on the weekend.
This afternoon, after performing a spur-of-the-moment errand, I joined a much larger, community-wide barbecue, aimed at bringing in a wealth of non-perishable food for our county Food Bank. I noticed a sizable amount of provisions in the barrels, in addition to what i brought in.
An article in today’s paper talked about somebody’s 1,000 Places to See Before You Die”. I’m peripatetic, but I can’t see going to that extent. Give me a plate of ” ‘cue” and pleasant company, and I’m set for a while.
Tomorrow will see me at yet another gathering. Yes, I had a TrimShake in the evening, then went to Planet Fitness and made room for the next round.
