More Company!

Through Facebook, Randy connected with a friend he knew  as a child. Janice's family used to live near Randy's family, and for a few years all the children hung around together. They haven't seen each other since then, but Janice and her husband Lance were planning a trip to St. Augustine and were able to swing by here for a couple of days! To celebrate the event Randy made a special 4 layer cake with strawberry filling between each layer. To keep the strawberries in place, he piped a rim of chocolate frosting. 
Then he covered it all with vanilla frosting and topped it with an edible picture, copied from an old photo of them when they were 3 and 2 years old. The lady at the store who made the picture top cut the edges off in a very weird manner, so Randy had to hide that with extra frosting!
Before having cake, we enjoyed one of Randy's awesome prime rib dinners. When we were too full to move, we retired in the living room. Lance got out his banjo to play for us - he has been playing professionally since he was 9 years old and is really excellent.
He has several banjos at home; for this trip he brought his 1935 banjo, which is a beautiful thing.
