Attendance was (fortunately) down from the projected maximum of 100 plus, in part due to the high temperatures forecast, but the day was actually more comfortable than expected due to overcast that eventually yielded a light rain in the late afternoon, which did little to dampen festivities.
Georgie was again commissioned to provide a cake. When we heard the theme "A Midsummer Night's Steam," the phrase "rude mechanicals" came to mind, and inspired a cake depicting Shakespeare's "Bottom" in tool bedecked overalls, wearing a brazen, steam-spouting donkey's head. It was universally admired.
We took our leave in the late afternoon, but I understand the party went on well into the night. A rather nice video of the event can be found here:
