    Hi,

    I regret I cannot attend. I will be somewhere around Kansas City and Omaha at this time.

    Can you put me on the list as a tentative yes. Still trying to figure out if we will be in town or out of town that weekend. I will confirm as soon as I know one way or the other.

    my home is poorly designed for entertaining, with my living room at one end of a long hallway, and the kitchen and dining room at the other end...what was i thinking? i guess i was thinking that 99.9% of the time i'm not entertaining so it's just fine. what i'm getting at is, i'm expanding the guest list up to 12: if the weather's good, my back deck can hold 4- 6 eaters easily; my dining room table 8; and my living room can be backup if the deck is unusuable because of bad weather. so karen and dobra are off the waiting list. as we all know, there are always last minute cancellations as life bops someone in the face....

    So we are just a smidge over a week out and I can't decide yet. I have the parade on Saturday so I am going to say I definitely need something easy, maybe an ice cream I can make ahead or perhaps the Milk Street Chocolate Chip and rye cookie. I have some other thoughts but I need to kind of see how I feel.

    It feels odd not doing some sort of summer fruit but time will tell.

    PS My + 1 is understandably rain-checking due to the parade. So no + 1 for me!

    You had JennyIL on the list already as jenny. She was #10. pielady, also a Jenny, was already on the list in the #4 spot you had not forgotten anyone.

    Your total count right now, less pairs4life's+1, including JennyIL, pielady, Cookie Monster, & Karen, is eleven with no one on the waitlist.

    Unfortunately, I'm going to have to cancel. I'm going to Wisconsin next week for four days and will be returning on Sunday. Have a wonderful exchange! I'll see you guys at the picnic in September.

    Sorry to be a last minute cancellation -- I am heading to the emergency vet instead -- my whippet mix cut herself on something outside. Not sure how long it will take to get her stitched up and back home.

    Thanks again for a lovely evening, justjoan! And I hope everyone is doing well.

    Usually I come home and offer up my winnings to the hubster, but I put dibs on the salad. :mrgreen:
