The Dr Pepper cart, filled for the crowd.
The cook had this view of the back yard but faced the pool. He was really busy with hamburgers and hotdogs for 60 people.

Everyone eating....good at least they liked the food.
Everyone loved the watermelon cookies. Given all the information about Watermelon rinds during the week before, I saw most of the men munching them. Here is the recipe, I used chocolate chips instead of currents.
Prepare Cookie Dough the day before:
¾ c. butter
¾ c. sugar
½ t. almond extract
2 c. flour
¼ t. salt
¼ t. b. powder
If dough is soft, add more flour. Remove 1 c. dough. Color the rest of the dough, red.
1/3 cup of remaining dough, color green. Cover all three of the doughs for one hour.
Reshape red dough into 3 ½ inch cylinder. On flour wax paper, roll out plain dough. – 8 ½ by 3 inch rectangle. Place around cylinder.
Refrigerate over night.
Slice and bake – Place dried currant. Bake until firm but not brown.
375 degrees, for about 6 to 10 minutes.
