All six Knights and all five Dragons posed for photos Monday evening, at our house, after dinning on cubed-steak and gravy, green beans, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, and cornbread! It was so good you would slap your mamma for the last bite!

Tony (orange t-shirt) is sort of an honorary member of both groups since he is not married. However, the gathering was in his honor. He is the Dragons' baby brother and only visits three or four times a year. He lives in Atlanta, and the Dragons often travel down there for a day visit.

To us Knights, just another excuse to party and over eat! On this particular day, after Sunday on the lake, we did not think much about enjoying our beer! We were content with the sweet and unsweetened tea Neena had made!

About the time everyone was ready to leave my daughter and granddaughter arrived “fashionably late” in time to say goodbye to everyone. Katie Bug was 15 on the 16th, and looking forward to her sophomore year starting very soon!

I think you and your family've got the coolest life of any people I've ever known. Maybe one of these days I'll be able to enjoy times like those, If I'm very, very lucky.

Fifteen year olds are always fashionably late, that's if they show at all - believe me, I know! Such a pretty girl, isn't she? (lock her up.)

Mushy, I swear, you lead the sweetest life.

Hi Mushy,

Suldog beat me to the punch on that wonderful line.

But hey, bring the Knights around to my place for a good Aussie BBQ.

We could call it Saturday Knights Fever.

Keep smiling

Knights and Dragons?

Are you sure you aren't into any of that funny stuff?

Mushy said...

Oh David, you don't know how I love to bring at least a few of us to your area. I've always wanted to visit downunder, but haven't done quite enough research as yet.

I'd like to spend about 2 to 3 weeks maybe crusing the ports and touring the highlights.

One of these days!
