Thanks,everyone, for your wonderful compliments.
I know Joe and I had a fabulous time with our fabulous new friends! Even if I did come downstairs half-dressed to find 8 guys waiting at my front door. (I'm always late for everything)
Evryone was so generous. I got a feel for just how remote ChickenGuys's home is. I meant all those toasts that I gave, because of all the great people that came to this meet.
Thanks especially for Ted for asking, "that chicken looks good, what's in it?", to which I responded, "it's chicken and... Oh, shit, I forgot to add the olives and lemon juice", which saved the meal!
And my plan worked: serve dinner so late, that everyone insists dinner was delicious, if only because you'd have eaten raw monkey entrails at that point because you were so hungry.
Can't wait to do Part II today!!!!!!
I'll just be a little late--lots of cleaning to do, since Joe has to be at work today.
