It was a gorgeous late August day,
fields abundant with the fruits of summer.
Even the goat and pig were friendly.
But we had come to eat the best meal of our lives.
First, hors d's (photo by Etienne Frossard) on the patio
Fifty people at one very long table in the center of the barn
with tomatoes for sale along the walls.
Six courses, maybe 16 (photo from Bouley Restaurant on Facebook, thanks)
Which then were served to discerning palates (thanks again, Etienne)
Course by course until it was over and David and Ray said goodbye
and that they'd do it again -- soon
As the waters receded, fund-raising arose (everyone loves Ray)
and he continued to go to (Grand Army Plaza and 97th Street Farmers) Market
selling what he could (here on Sept 24)
And I took this picture of Etienne
And said goodbye to Iris Kimberg, who runs the show
And to the stone pig
