Our Super Leisure Group (SLG) friends were invited to a lunchtime BBQ yesterday, as we hadn’t managed a get-together with them for a wee while. It turned out to be a bit of a Bon Voyage party as everyone wished us well for our upcoming “South Island Odyssey” caravan tour. It’s not long to go now and we are really looking forward to our trip. As far a BBQ weather went, it was a bit blustery to start with, then the weather warmed up nicely, and we enjoyed the sunshine on the back deck. Robin did his bit as chief cook and took charge of the BBQ. We had sausages, chicken kebabs and marinated pork strips, all cooked to perfection. With a nice assortment of salads to accompany the meal we had plenty to eat. And yummy dessert too!
As usual with this group, there was plenty to talk about, and lots of laughs too. Now, just what is happening here? Robin swore black and blue that his missing fork had dropped out of his hand and slipped between the slats in the deck, but no one believed that it could fall through such a tiny space. That's Trish lying down on her tummy trying to find the missing fork! Even if she can spot it, I don’t know how we will be able to retrieve it.
With the magic of the delayed shutter function on the camera Robin set up a group shot, then raced back to place himself in the middle.
That missing fork was obviously playing on his mind overnight, as after breakfast this morning Robin was out on the deck making a concerted effort to find it. There was quite a racket going on so I went to investigate. There he was prying the wooden slats apart. That fork wasn’t going to beat him!
With his honour restored the mystery of the missing fork was finally solved. Success at last.
