2nd Annual Indian Summer Picnic! Come in!


Welcome! Welcome!
.
It's Bloggville's 2nd Annual Indian Summer Picnic!
.
We're so glad you could make it!
.
.

.
The hay wagon is here to pick you up. Grab your picnic basket and hop on.

. .
Nice view!
.

.
And here we are - plenty of picnic tables for everyone, and a large field for fun and games.
.

.
The old cider mill is over there by the stream

.

.
Fresh cold cider for everyone
.
Food?
.
That's what picnics are all about!
.

.
We're taking all the delicious treats out of our picnic baskets. I see we have everything from carrot soup to nuts
.
.
Oops - maybe not nuts. The squirrels have been very busy.
.


.
Mmm! I see an autumn appetizer! Wild mushrooms on french bread. We have more main courses than we'll know what to do with! What did you bring?
.
.
Uh oh! I think we've all brought desserts! Mmm spiced plums!

.


.
And apple crisp with vanilla creme!
.
.

Baked apples!

. .
And a beautiful carrot cake - well, that's almost a vegetable, isn't it? Enjoy!
.
.
After lunch and games, we'll build a bonfire, and we've set up a large stage for square dancing.

.
.
Your square dance dress is perfect!

.

.
Our special guests today are the famous dance callers, Slim Flickens and Pearl Patootie.

.

.
We've brought along a few great dancers. Here's the handsome Mr. Pock. Wait a minute! You were supposed to call Mr. P-E-C-K - Big difference. Big.
Can he at least dance?

.

.
Enjoy this bountiful party! The perfect way to spend the first day of Autumn!
.
If you have an Indian Summer post today, please leave a comment to let us know and we'll stop by to visit. If not, just stay and enjoy!

You throw the perfect Indian Summer picnic! As long as one doesn't sit too close to Mr. Pock. ;-)

Stevie darlin, if ya'd quit stepping on my toe during the do-si-do I might be able to change partners and sashay sout just a little better here. If those crinolines were any starchier you'd put an eye out!
Glad you could stop on by!

Heather - I just asked Pock why he calls himself dubya. Turns out his name is Wayne DeWayne Duane Pock. He doesn't just look like a serial killer by chance....so dance with him at your own risk, darlin
