the party was a success


everyone loved these.........


and these.

everything went off more or less without a hitch.
we were organized and got all the meals correct
we even got the ones to bring home for those who couldn't attend
the bill was less than I thought (good because I had the checkbook!)
all in all a great time
with music while we ate
and new friends as well as old faces

the VPres stepped up to the plate so I didn't have to say a speech
and we drew names for the arrangements
some new friends won them
some old friends won them
very nice time all in all...........

onto the next task.........CHRISTMAS SHOPPING!!!




To Do or not to do....that is the question......
