Morning fellas and non fellas. We had a blast at the Tennessee Gathering! To those that came was great meeting you. To those that couldn't make it I look forward to seeing you at the next gathering!

Started off our festivities with Robert taking me and emily out for cajun food Thursday night. Me and Robert had beers at a Mexican restaurant while we waited on emily to get off work.

Excellent pictures and great food, look like nobody should have gone away hungry. Looks like the weather cooperated also.

That's a lot of good looking chow! Bacon wrapped dates are so good and I am a big fan of cornbread salad. Looks like a good time for everyone. You and Emily are great hosts and Robert very generous!

Looks like a fine time and a TON of excellent chow! It would be great to meet folks in person who you feel you've "known" for a while online.
Glad it turned out well and wish I could have been there!
