The Mid Atlantic Montana Rally is in full swing. It's so nice to reconnect with everyone and to also meet new people. Yesterday we took Marilyn and LC Boyer back to Smokey Mountain Knife Works. Bill was in his glory!
It's not a very good angle but if you look just to the left of the black sign you can see a huge knife right below the light.
Marilyn is smiling because we finally got the guys out of the store. Right next door is the Coleman outlet and the Lodge Cast Iron Cookware outlet. I did see on TV last night that this cookware is made in Pittsburg TN and has been family owned the entire time.
By the time we returned it was almost time for Happy Hour. Marilyn made Summer Breeze drinks for everyone. They were made with Absolute, Blue Moon Beer and lemonade. They really were refreshing.
We were all glad that the conference center was a short walk away. Our catered dinner was very nice, but the AC in the center was even nicer.
Didn't think to get photos taken during the dinner.
Everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to Bill, Ted and Linda. Can you imagine three people in this group having the same birthday?
White Elephant gift exchanges are very popular with the Montana group. Pat Bohmer was in charge and she really had the group going. This year it seems a gooney bird brought more laughter than anything. I do believe that one man was going to be sleeping in his truck, if he didn't "steal" the gooney bird back for his wife.
More fun today!
