Sue and I hosted our next and final open house backgammon party on Saturday June 11, The Great 2016 Twelve Years At The Garrison Final Backgammon Tournament And Top Gun Stew!. We celebrated 12 years here at the Garrison, actually moving in on June 11, 2004. But now that we're in full new house hunting mode, and me retiring we'll pick these parties up again at our next home!
I started food prep work around 3:30 pm because the Top Gun Stew was actually Spaghetti Bolognese in recognition of the first dinner I cooked for these backgammon parties. And Sue did up a special desert for us, a really satisfying Peach Cobbler with some vanilla ice cream on top. I was sooooo stuffed I could hardly move after dinner. And, the next day as well!
The movie of the night was Top Gun, as that was what we watched at the first party back in 2004 The Great 2004 Labor Day Backgammon Tournament And Spaghetti Feed 09/04/04! What better way to go out than this, and our 103rd backgammon party!
