Evening Campfire

Now that the weather has gotten cold enough to knock down the mosquitoes, we are getting back to having our campfire pot-luck after work with our employees.

Perhaps there is something primeval about a campfire...something that reaches into the depth of our being, but there doesn't seem to be anything as pleasant as sitting around a campfire enjoying the company of people we care about...and of course those yummy chocolate, S'mores!

Gathering around the table for those wonderful (?) hot dogs!

Jeff Ripple joins Clyde cooking hot dogs.

The whole gang around the campfire...
Niki, Jeff, Clyde, Debby, Norm, Julie, Rick

...and the first to cook the S'mores!

With full stomachs and the fire dieing down to an ember,
we sit around and tell stories until bed time.
A relaxing evening had by all.
