Ian, if you can organize one, we'll supply you with beer when you get here... a couple of cases of Shiner Bock - brewed and worshiped in Texas!

It truly was a nice day. I'm guessing about 30 people showed up, which is on the low side since there are many more South Africans in the area. However, those that came had a great time. Usually we leave at 4-5 pm, but this time the last lot left at 6.30 pm! Eventually I almost felt like lighting the fire again for dinner!
This time we also had guests from as far away as the San Francisco Bay Area. Tony & Lorraine Croft, who we got to know when we lived there 10 years ago, flew down to Texas on Thursday to make along weekend out of it. We made 10 lbs of boerewors, and that's what we ate all weekend long!
Ian, several of us had Shiner's out there. If you had come down from Milwaukee, I'm sure we could've spared a few...

Made sosaties once for our 'yankee' friends: had all the neighbors come over because of the smell coming from the braai. We only made enuf for 2 per adult and 1 per child, not enuf for the rest of the neighborhood: we made up a story that it was made from elephant meat and all the nosey neighbors left !

They may not have appreciated it as much as we do anyway. My wife sometimes sausage rolls and pies. It takes a lot of work to make them. I'm always hesitant for them to be given away because most don't appreciate the taste and the amount of work that goes into them. That, of course, leaves for me...
