Apparently, the Chows sensed something was up because they had everything in good order by Friday at 4 pm.
Even Bob, the Venerated Elder of The Chow Nation, anticipated crowds of some kind this weekend.
And all kinds and sizes came.
They ate and ate.
Some retreated--probably for private one-on-ones?
You know the networking opportunities certain get togethers can provide...
Others looked into each other's eyes and spoke the truth as they knew it.
Some napped while others searched out a good read with the newspaper.
A splendid time was had by all!
