Thank You


Several hours of good food,conversation,  wine, and two chatty girls competing with each other to tell the best ghost story. Thank you to the affable despot family for an evening of sweetness.

    1. I've called jason an "affable despot" from the first day I met him...I have no idea why, the nickname just suited him
      The family inherited the title

    2. There's two words I've just learnt the meaning of. Friendly and easy to talk to, and a person in power who acts tyrannically. Been reading all this time and never knew what you were talking about :o)

  18. So do you like your marshmallows lightly browned, darkly browned, or on-fire blackened? Inquiring minds want to know...

  27. John, the more I read your recent posts, the more I feel that a move away from that wonderful, friendly place would be such a bad move. could you possibly reconsider?
