4th of July Party in Marietta
We went to a party on the 4th. About 5pm as we arrived it rained like the Mother of all rains. By the time most of the people arrived, it quit raining and cleared off some. People could stand around and socialize. People got to mix and mingle, hand out cards*, share recipes, gossip, tell the latest rumors buzzing around the city….. if this an’t Southern Living I don’t know what is. There were film editors, columnists, elected officials, lawyers, and at least two retired people mingling. Yes, there was at least one amateur blogger/video camera operator.
Speaking of the video camera operator, the idiot overlooked videoing the low country boil spread out on the table, along with grilled burgers and dogs, salads of all kinds and numerous desserts.
Then the band started to pack their gear as a rumble up in the heavens said another storm would be here soon.
It was a very pleasant evening. Doug and Rachel really know how to throw a party. We enjoyed their hospitality immensely.
Then it started to rain again. We folded our chairs and headed for home.
*I may have been the only one that was handing out cards.
