Mad Max on the Loose Again..................

I've always been envious of our fellow eggers in Texas, Georgia, and Florida always seeming to get together. Finally, the bug has been spreading to my little hamlet in Ohio. Several weeks ago, the lovely DianaQ and the talented ClayQ and dhuffjr dropped by. The following week I had the honor of Mad Max, Sam, dhuffjr, Angela, and Rick's Tropical Delight dropping over. Max was taking his son Sam on a college scouting trip.

Max with his son Sam:

The guys admiring my new ClayQ egg table:

Because of doctors orders (not mine) RTD was only allowed one beer. He choose wisely, 26 ounce ales.

He was lead astray by Max and imbibed further.

Grilling steaks by committee:

When smoke gets in your eyes(we were having way too much fun):

Max's plate:

Yeah, yeah......I know what you're all thinking. Should have had Rick take the pics. :unsure:

Don't worry Max......next time you visit, you aren't sneaking out before donning 'the' apron.

Aren't Dennis and Rick handsome :evil: 's?

I was given marching orders to have Sam and Max off by 8pm. They had arrived at 5pm. This was the first dinner party I've ever held that was completed in 3 hours.

Sam and Max, you're welcome back anytime! :)
And if any eggers are passing through Dayton you are welcome to drop in and share a meal.

    411 miles......only a 6 1/2 hour drive, Kari. From what I've heard, you could make it in 5 hours easy! :whistle:

    I can have breakfast waiting. :)

    Judy, that's an apt description! Burp. :lol:

    Beli, now you know you have a standing invitation if you are ever in the Dayton area. :)
  • eenie meenieeenie meenie Posts: 4,393
    Molly, you are so kind. :)

    (from what I hear, if you drove Kari, she could make it to Dayton from St. Louis in only 4 hours) :woohoo:

    Hahaha, I was going to say something to your response to her. :laugh: :whistle: We got out of the ticket though. :laugh:

  • eenie meenieeenie meenie Posts: 4,393
    Yep Pat, I knew when they start wearin' those aprons, there went the neigborhood! :woohoo:
  • Could make it in less time with Cookn biker at the helm and me on the lookout :woohoo:
  • :blush:
    Have a feeling this wasn't the first time she'd worked the Mini to her advantage :ohmy:
    Glad she's on my side :woohoo:
  • it was a great evening with great food and even better friends!!! ..and WOW, what a meal, whole lobster tails for appetizer and then those prime steaks!!! just outstanding . ..oh yeah, and that fancy shmancy balsamic vinager over the fresh strawberries, along with my favorite Graeter's ice cream!!!! doesn't get much better than that!!

    and while i didn't get to don the polka dot apron, i'm sure its not every man who comes to dinner that gets ordered to drop his pants and get his butt warmed!!! (or maybe it is every man, i don't know!) :woohoo:
  • eenie meenieeenie meenie Posts: 4,393
    Max, I'm just going to leave you wondering...... :lol: :lol: :lol:

    At least it's officially unplugged for the season. I wonder if they make coolers? :woohoo:

    Looks like a very fun dinner party with great company. Like you, I'm envious of all the get-togethers it seems everywhere but the PNW! If I'm ever in Dayton, I will definitely let you know!!!

    He comes across all white and fleecy but you just never now about those Washington types.....

    When we were meandering around the Air Force Museum his inner self came out. I saw him taking this picture so I had to take the picture of him taking the picture of the ladies hind end on the plane.....reminded me of a classic Max moment!

    Poor Rick was out of sorts with these implements. Was she expecting us to do landscaping or eat.....it gets confusing when your handed a shovel and a salad bowl is in front of you. Rebecca ever resourceful just went for the handful of lettuce method.

    Then out comes the aprons.

    I'm thinking Rick may order one for himself.
