New Year’s Eve

A great way to end the year: with GOOD friends (part two) Phyl and Dave; also with GOOD food.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Our tradition (second year of rekindling after a 13-year break) is to watch a couple of movies, and drink and eat too much. I spend the night of course. Our menu this year was so good, we’re thinking of repeating it next year:
Red plate: veggie bars. Flowered plate: pineapple wrapped in bacon, sausage/crescent roll bites, stuffed mushrooms, meatballs wrapped in bread dough.

Get-together with friends

We met at Adrienne’s. We are all retired teachers from RLUSD/TRUSD, except Ellen was a speech therapist. All of us did CELDT testing last September/October, except for Linda who works part-time as a teacher for home-schoolers. Back row L-R: Val, Adrienne, Georgene, Linda, Ellen. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Terrible picture. I need a new camera, but being the terrible shopper I am, it’s taking a long time.

Christmas party

At Archie and Sandy Sanders. An annual event and lots of fun. L-R: Jim & Kathy Smith, Archie, Bev Ruby.

I always have to check in on the progress Archie has made on his elaborate model train project.
