Rabbit Stick

(Photo Ray Fraser) On the way, we stopped by the Gilcrease Institute, in Tulsa, to photograph the shark's tooth club Larry made.

  We also made a short detour to the Alibates Flint Quarries, North of Amarillo.

Then, On to Wintercount!!




    Temps in the upper 70s and lower 80s for 5 days ending with rain on Friday. Ya can't beat that!

Some of us were lucky enough to win the "duck man's" drawing and were treated to a sit-down, 5 course, meal. Tom pulls out all the stops to make a wonderful meal in the dessert.

   We started with the cheese,  plum sauce, and cracker appetizer.

  Then, on to the salad with tomato, cheese, lettuce, and a light drizzle of dressing. Next, the duck drumsticks, Then the quail, Then came the duck breasts with carrots and potatoes. It was all finished off with banana chunks smothered with a chocolate sauce.

Oh, I almost forgot, a large bottle Merlot also enhanced the festivities.

    Guests relax while enjoying the wine and meal, while being serenaded by Larry and his flute.

  Here's the "duck man" himself.
