Hi Joey,

Glad you liked my Lumpers’ Picnic submission, scheduled for 6 pm tomorrow. I’m hosting a Lumpers’ Picnic themed reception in the gallery on Friday, August 10th for the Mayor and her Walk the Walk tour at 1:45 pm. I’m waiting to hear from Mark McDonough about a picnic platter before I put anything out. Maybe you’ll want to tack this onto my Lumper post, or do a separate one. Up to you my friend.

Thanks, Fred
