Saturday, our sisters and husbands were responsible for one heck of a feast and gathering. Smoked brisket, courtesy of Leon, and Ken's pork headed a menu that also included a couple of kinds of coleslaw, Libby's great potato salad, potato logs, and three kinds of cake. Grandson Elliot claims to have had seven pieces. I'm sure his parents are enjoying him this afternoon.
Brother Jim made us a pair of CDs with 50 songs from 1963, including the top two of the year, "Sugar Shack" and that classic, "Sukiyaki." But the hit was a performance to "Twist and Shout" by Jessi, Jill and Harriet, ending with a slide across the floor from Mary.
All in all, a wonderful celebration--many thanks to our families, described by Jim as "a wacky, slap-dash gene-pool."
