Friday, April 12 – After spending the entire day enjoying the Masters, it was time to party!!! Paul's brother has a Masters party every year inviting about 50 family members, friends, and business associates. John (Paul's brother) and Ryan (his son) are in charge of the menu.

Prep time…John and Ryan.

This years specialty is Prime Rib, grilled veggie's, potatoes, and grilled chicken kabobs. Of course adult beverages are available to hydrate oneself after spending a day on the golf course.

We had a wonderful time meeting and talking with this group of friendly southerners. Marsha spent quite a bit of time talking to a couple from Italy. Her grandparents were from Italy and that's one of Marsha's most favorite places to visit.

We had a such a great time that before we knew it the clock struck 2:30 a.m. WOW! Staying up with the young adults is tough. Sure glad we're staying around the house on Saturday rather than going to the Masters. John, Karen and another couple are going to watch the golf. We'll hang around the house, relax and do some cleaning up of things from last night's party.

We hit the road for Ohio early Sunday morning. It's taking us two days to drive there from Augusta, GA.

Thanks so much John and Karen for a fabulous two weeks. You can bet that we will be back.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!


  1. It looks like the party alone is worth watching all that golf:)

  2. Wow, wasn't it a party! (oh, that's a Canadian song, you probably don't know it).

    Could have been the whiskey, might have been the gin.
    Could have been three or four six-packs,
    I don't know, but look at the mess I'm in,
    My head is like a football, I think I'm gonna die,
    Tell me, me oh me oh my,
    Wasn't that a party?

  3. I'm impressed that you stayed up until 2:30am!! Wow! I cannot remember the last time I did that! I don't even make it to midnight on New Year's Eve.

    That dinner menu sure sounded good - Prime Rib etc.!

  4. When they throw a party, they definitely throw a party. It would take me a long time to recover. Glad you're safe in Ohio.

  5. What a party that was! I bet you plan on being in that same location next year when he throws the next Master's party. Wow! Wow! Wow!

  6. Nice way to finish off a great Masters!

  7. What a great party...looks like hospitality runs in the family! Trust you have arrived home safe and sound and ready to start transforming your new home!

  8. You two sure do a lot of parties...lol Don't do to many or it may become a habit. Have a safe trip to Ohio.

  9. Party animals yes, and 2:30am I only see that time of the night after a few hours sleep. Sure looks like a fun time and lotsa great food.
    Travel safe, the weather is slowly warming up for you.

  10. Prime Rib! I've got to talk to my family. They serve burgers and hot dogs.

    Staying up to 2:30? Having a party reason is one thing. My bedtime now is between 2:30 and 3 am when I wake Len up to take over the gate guard duties. Thinking your reason is better.

  11. Now, that's a party!!! Glad you had such a great time at the Masters. I think I said my son was there as he is every year, but he wasn't. He was up in New York proposing to the girl of his dreams. I think that's the only thing that could have trumped the Masters for him. :)

  12. I can't remember the last time I had Prime Rib. Must be decades. My mouth is watering. ;)

  13. The one thing that could tempt me from our plant-based wa of eating is Prime Rib!....M mouth is watering. Hope ou are home safe and sound. Indiana is having some mighty rough weather (we still check on Indy daily)

  14. Must be some Master Chefs to prepare all the yummy food. That's quite a spread! Glad you had a good time.

  15. You two sure know how to party!


Thanks for leaving us a comment. We enjoy reading them. Have a great day!
