Who but Joe Huston could get people to drive two and a half hours to a little town in the mountains for a bar-b-que dinner? No one, that's who. It is a measure of the level of respect that Joe and Seren hold among the Usual Suspects that we went to Big Bear Lake to insult him and eat their food.

The party was a combination of things, mostly mysterious. I think it was Joe's birthday but not really. Mostly we congregated to celebrate the fact that he is just a shell of his former self. He lost almost 100 lbs and didn't have to resort to chemotherapy to do it. 

Joe even remembered that he is in the promotional products business and got etched wine glasses for the event. Everybody got one and will remember the event each time they fill it with wine and whine about the drive.
