Our Defenses are Prepared: but the Odds are Long

 This may be may last chance to report from the front - contact with the enemy is imminent and they have come in force.  Yes it's the time of year when my happy homestead is besieged by 50 or so twenty something students of my wife.  As with previous years we prepared a defense in depth with several defensive lines to stop the hungry marauders.

First up a crafty mix of salad and deli meats to slow down the raw recruits.  More seasoned veterans will likely bypass these for better pickings further on.

 Next they have to wade through a fruit and salad minefield.  Many an invader has been undone from a overdoes of berries.
 The main defensive line if a barrier of man-sized quiche - bacon (pictured), asparagus and assorted veggies versions.
 The quiche will be supported by sorts of fresh parties.
 Our commander in chief feverishly preparing her strategy....
and, our defense of last resort - the giant strawberry cake.  It's never failed us - yet.

Pray for me as battle is upon us.....

It is a good thing you do and quite a nice way to end a pressure filled school year. If you were Catholic I would recommend offering up the experience for the benefit of the souls in Purgatory!

Amazing! You know how to put on a show with food and lead too. ;-)

May your defensive preparations be as operationally successful as the Russians' at Kursk!
