A Cookout

Rantoul, IL.

62 deg, clear, no wind.
Forecast = Partly cloudy with scattered storms. Highs around 84°F. Southwest wind to 5 MPH. Chance of precipitation near 35%.

The weather continued to be very nice, so Jim and Linda invited Mike and Terri over for a cook-out yesterday. Jim cooked burgers on the grill, Linda cooked sweet corn-on-the-cob inside and Mike and Terri brought a macaroni salad and a lettuce salad.

They gathered outside at the picnic table to enjoy the good food that everyone put together and great conversation before, during and after the meal. ;-)

After eating, Mike and Terri helped bring all the "stuff" from the meal inside and then, because it was getting "buggy" outside, everyone came inside to visit some more.

After a little while, Terri helped Linda put together an angel food cake, pear and cool whip desert that everyone seemed to really enjoy. :-)  By the time they finished the desert, it was nearing 8:00 and Terri needed to return to their trailer to take some medications, so they headed back to their 5th wheel.

Again, it was a very good day with very good friends. I don't know how long Mike and Terri will be staying here at Prairie Pines, but I hope it'll be for quite awhile yet.

Did you know that today is "National Chocolate Chip Day"?
