And talking, and drinking slush, and sitting around, and drinking slush.

Sounds like a good plan to me. And every now and then we all pick up our chairs and move to stay in the shade.

Steve . . . it would be great if you could come over even if it is just for Saturday night.

You might not get too many opportunities like that. I'd take full advantage of it.

I made it to the campground. It's hot but there's a nice breeze.

Mary asked me to remind everyone that they're working very hard to grow grass here in the woods and do not allow mats or rugs on the grass.

I also got a scolding for pulling out a credit card. Since they're giving us such a good rate they'd prefer that we pay by cash or check if possible so they don't lose a few more percent to the banks.

Another great rally at Whittington Woods. Mary & Reed could not be more cordial and accommodating, providing a huge fan, free firewood, coffee and fresh doughnuts Sunday morning. It was hot but quite enjoyable. We did plenty of visiting, had too much food, and consumed a large quantity of slush drinks and breakfast cocktails

For those who want the pancake recipe, see below. The father of a college friend of mine ran for several decades a very popular diner in south Minneapolis, MN, and this was his recipe---scaled back to feed just a small crowd.

Town Talk Diner Buttermilk Pancakes

4 cups white flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
1 stick good butter, melted
6 large eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 quart buttermilk

Mix dry ingredients well, mix wet ingredients well, then whisk together til reasonably smooth. Bake on hot griddle for pancakes, or in waffle iron.


Slush

1 pint brandy
1 pint vodka
32 ounces pineapple juice
32 ounces apricot nectar
12 can frozen lemonade
12 can frozen orange juice

Mix all together until well blended, freeze. Scoop into glasses and top with 7-up just to cover. Stir well and enjoy on a hot day.

Thanks to everyone for such a nice rally this weekend. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. Hopefully we can do another this fall.

I've posted a photo page with captions here: http://web.mac.com/skmentz/Airstream...ton_Woods.html

The following link are the same pictures in a gallery format that's easier to download. It also provides the option to upload if you have some photos you'd be willing to add. http://gallery.mac.com/skmentz#100684
