Well, yesterday was the big day. As you can see in the pictures, I decided to go as a "punk biker" type personna, and Cindy dressed up as a combination Betty Boop/Good Witch/Socialite. It took Cindy a couple of hours to get my hair totally fried and frizzed and colored black. She also drew a snake tattoo on my face. I had on a biker shirt I have had (but never before worn) from a 1997 biker rally in myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Got me some handcuffs hanging from my belt, made me a phony marijuana ciggy, and I was ready to go.

Cindy decked out in about two pounds of makeup, a ridiculous wig, black sexy dress, boa on her neck, and a crown that featured a veil and spiders. (EEEEK!)

Ray and Sandy were dressed for the occasion, as were Wayne and Suzan. Wayne was the hit of the party with his "rat cap", which featured a dead Norwegian rat inside his cap, with its tail sticking out about eight inches in front of his face.

We were joined by Mike and Diane. The eight of us had a blast, with good conversation and food. The men even had a croquet game in the back yard. Ray won the game, but there is widespread belief that he perhaps bent the rules a little. Ha.

Sandy decorated her home very creatively. It was beautiful, with all manner of snakes, spiders, body parts and witches everywhere.

And the food? Oh, my gosh. Delicious pulled pork, homemade baked beans with bacon, the best damn 5-cheese macaroni & cheese with jalapeno & grilled corn I have ever put in my mouth, and all manner of desserts. The woman worked pretty hard to make this happen, and we had the best time ever.

We came home very full and thankful to have such wonderful friends. Thank you, Ray and Sandy, for a beautiful and unforgettable evening!
