We ran into the Compton's from Lexington who happened to be here too. We enjoyed having dinner together with Ben, Suzanne, Charlie and Nancy. It was nice to have friends to enjoy a meal with again.

We decided to get 2 dozen between us knowing Josh can eat 3-5 of a
normal size burger if he is allowed. We got nothing else since you
