Southern Memorial Day Tradition

Last week my husband got an invitation for both of us to attend a "cook-out".
This was no ordinary barbecue...
This 90 year old gentleman has been hosting it for 47 years!

"RG" had known Gary's father,
 and had worked with Gary's grandfather in the logging industry.
The ties that Mr. RG had to Gary's family made this occasion a special treat.

Entertainment was provided by a singing group called
"4 GIVEN + ONE".

The small grill was worked continuously
to keep up with hungry appetites!

Different types of food were served in various places.
Our host made sure everyone knew where to go
to sample all the delicious fares.
The last stop was strawberry shortcake with ice cream.
Gallons of strawberries had been prepared!
Mmmmmm...  Delicious!

The playground was busy with happy children...

...While grown-ups watched or visited.

Four-wheelers offered rides for those who wanted a little adventure.

A good time was had by all!
I felt privileged to be a part of this get-together!
Thank you, Mr. RG and family!
