I opened up the screen. It measures 68" X 68" and after 15 years is still in good shape. :D I'll bring it on Friday.

Looks Good to me,

We Hoosiers like our food and any excuse to cook in a D.O.

And I'm pretty sure my brother and his wife are joining us again this year.
There will be no kids, Ahhh I can sleep in as late as I want

Am I reading this correctly? Is it true? Will the "Mystery woman" make an appearance? :shock:

I now know for a fact, that the Mystery woman really does exist, although actual sightings are rare. It is said that the average person has a better chance of seeing Elvis, than they do catching a glimpse of "the Mystery woman".

Kurt we are happy to hear she will be joining us this weekend. :thumbsup:

Jim, I just confirmed with the "mystery guest" that she could make an appearance on Saturday.


I'm making her famous recipe for Irish stew and she could be there to taste it with us. (it's really nothing special but I've liked it for the past 37 years.) We'll see what you all think.

The menu for Sunday morning can be a "left over-potluck" version.
Those are sometimes the best ones.

Looks like the weather will be agreeable and that's a "good thing" :thumbsup:

Must be pretty good if you've enjoyed it for 37 years. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Sounds like it might be good over biscuits in the morning. :twisted:

Bob, We have been very lucky with the weather ever since the Hoosier Chapter was started.

It must have something to do with "good Karma". I never really believed all that stuff, but I'll take it :applause: :thumbsup:

The Deepest spot in Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes is 1,333 feet or about 222 fathoms. This profound depth could easily contain the entire 1,250' Empire State Building, even with a 50-foot-tall King Kong perched atop.
