Well, the big day is finally here. More pictures to hang today. Paige came over around 11 and took me to Costco so I could some fixin's for the hoedown.
Got finished with all the housework right at 6:30. Started prepping food immediately and was nearly finished when the first guests showed up just before 7:15.
In all, about 2 dozen people showed up. Not too many, not too few. A good time was had by all, but especially by me. This was the first party I'd thrown in over 16 years. Never ever threw one in those 2 apartments I lived in over on Wade Avenue, so I guess the last time I hosted a party would have been when I still lived in the house over in Boylan Heights that I moved out of in early '91.
