can we afford to eat here?, part 3

July 23, 2012

You remember Fred and Sheri, don’t you?  Here they are in April with Jude, by the Oyster


    This was at the start of a four-month

celebration of Fred’s birthday, marked

by a fantastic meal Sheri cooked.  Last

week she topped herself with a cascade

of cannellonis.  Yesterday she did even

better, organizing a cookout for 30 or

so people.


This event had everything: fantastic grilled steaks (including moose), garlic bread, corn on

the cob, sparkling conversation, celebrities and Celtic dancing.  The dancing was provided

by Fred’s granddaughter, who dazzled the crowd with some truly nifty footwork.  The celebs

were stars from the cast of a recent Quadra production of Little Shop of Horrors.


Jude and I actually got to talk to them.  I’m pleased to report they are really down-to-earth

folks, making us feel very comfortable.  I think it helped that we have known them for several



So, hats off to Sheri.  She expertly created a memorable experience, smoothly handling every

problem.  When it started raining, she moved us under a picnic shelter.  I never would have

thought of that.  I hope she continues to perfect her skill set, and I hope that Fred has another

long birthday next year.

      You’re most welcome, ShEri. I apologize for the mispelling of your name. Those responsible have been keelhauled in the pond. It won’t happen again. Say “hello” to Frad.
