|Happy Fiftieth Anniversary Pat and Dave
The party was a smashing success. Family and friends started arriving in the afternoon. The roasted pig arrived and was carved around 4 PM. It was not a sight for the weak of heart - the skin and hair was still on the pig when it was removed from the roaster.
Dinner was served and besides pork, there were two kinds of salad (wild rice and strawberry), onion pie (absolutely fantastic), and bread. Then there was the beer truck with 2 types of beer, wine, tea, and lemonade.
Pat and Dave's son Marty unveiled the Hell Cycler 2.0. It's a converted washing machine invented by Marty and a friend (2 engineers with too much time on their hands) that mixes and dispenses large quantities of drinks.
The music started at 7 PM. Shortly after, Pat came out of the house wearing her prom dress followed by her granddaughter Sydney wearing Pat's 50 year old wedding dress. Then there was Dave dancing with his bride of 50 years and Roger dancing with his daughter.
The music went on until 10 PM and most of the guest began drift home by then. Great party!!
