franciscan bbq

Yesterday afternoon we drove all the way to Langley for the summer barbecue at Marilynn's house. It's become an annual tradition. That means we've done it once or twice before. Unfortunately several people were missing. It was a bit rainy, but we just had the bbq indoors. Marilynn's hubby did the cooking out on the patio. The rain seemed to hold off while he was there, and just started sprinkling when he got to the end. Always great to see these people and swap stories: this time it was mostly about summer holidays. There were 5 kids, ages roughly 7 to 11, I think, and they were fantastic. All of them bright and polite and thoroughly delightful. (The round trip to/from Langley, as about 120 km.)
