Thursday @ Merrilyn’s

On Tuesday. Phyllis has been staying with me since January 12 – really just spending the night in the guest bedroom – she’s been visiting LOTS of friends and family. Today was reserved for Thursday at Merrilyn’s. Bacon cheese pull-aparts and Garlic buttered grilled shrimp:

Surprise: Jack Nolan came by, looking for Merrilyn’s husband Bob:

Dessert! Homemade raspberry sherbet and brownies:

A now-rare reunion of the three of us! We miss you, Phyl!

Later that evening, I moved my towel collection around which meant I had to climb to the third step of a ladder. Thanks Phyl for being there to call 911 if needed … lol ..

Thursday at Merrilyn’s

I offered to cancel today’s get together because standing up and making an appetizer seemed like too difficult a task. But Merrilyn said to come anyway – hurray! And I did bring something (the Ruffles, not the fruit) to go with Merrilyn’s Crostini with mushrooms, beef and brie.

When I told Merrilyn I went to watch a cribbage tournament and now wanted to learn how to play, her eyes lit up. She went to her car (where she keeps her cribbage board!) and gave me a lesson. Fun!
