With a wonderful bread pudding, made by our resident dessert-master, Gentleman farmer.

Every wine, every damn one would have made a memorable evening.  For them all to show this well in such august company, along with a repast of this caliber was yet one more memorable evening with a group of gentlemen who I am proud to call my friends.  A couple of pictures are attached.  I have more, but can't figure out how to post or convert the &%$^ ing HEIC images from my &$#% ing iPhone to a format that I can post here.    


Sounds delightful
