I don't see anyone coming before about 12pm, so I suggest we have the
bbq grills ready and cooking at noon.  I have one I can bring, but
will need a truck like vehicle to haul it from Murray.

A couple years ago, we threw away a huge server, but I think there was
a good bit of hardware that was taken home.
