Faces in the Crowd -
Pictures from the September's picnic at By Reed's

For those of you who weren't able to attend the picnic, you missed a great time, great food and a great host.  Here are some pictures of By's new house and pool, the host himself and his shop (eat your hearts out with jealousy!).  The only thing folks complained about was the mosquitoes--look at the size of those suckers!


To make those of you who didn't attend feel even worse, the BBQ was fantastic and plentiful, the drinks were cold and the "fixin's" (the stuff brought by those fortunate enough to attend) were equally as good--YUM!  As an added bonus, "just relaxing time" was thrown in for good measure.

"Piddling" on By's lathe is always a favorite part of picnics at his place.
