Early in the day I received a text from Jeannie asking if the boys would be going to Broomes. To the best of my knowledge I thought yes and would let her know when they planned on arriving since she had a birthday surprise for Barry. Knowing this, I wanted to be there before they arrived.
We had the privilege of sitting with and talking to Harold. We haven’t seen him in a long time. We figured the past month of oppressive heat probably kept him closer to home… like most intelligent people. (As you can see from the Captain’s Blog – Lori and I are not one of the intelligent people who stayed out of the heat.)
Barry and Eric had friends arrive in the late afternoon – early evening at which time they dropped the boat in the water and headed to Broomes. Once Barry arrived at the bar, Jeannie had him put on a birthday hat, much to Barry’s embarrassment. But, he did look so cute.
We hung out and enjoyed the company of all our friends. We got to know Mike and Larry much better. Eric and Barry say that Mike and Larry are the Kristine and Lori of their Ft. Washington home; or Kristine and Lori are the Mike and Larry of their Hollywood home.
