Party Time

Tonight was the last of three parties this week. This was the Singles' Party. For the past three years we've gone out to a restaurant for our get together. This year, the committee decided to have it in our Clubhouse.

Initially, it didn't go over too well. The thought of possibly bringing a dish and then cleaning up after the party was just not appealing. So, the committee had the dinner catered and then, they hired a woman to help serve and clean up.

We had a lot of fun, there was a grab bag and a scavenger hunt suitable for the more mature woman. We had to find specific items in our own pocketbooks, and we could sit at the table and search in the bottomless pit that some of us call a pocketbook. I won a scratch-off lottery ticket because I always carry a red and white striped mint. Unfortunately, the ticket was a loser, no surprise there.

As the evening wore on, we all agreed that it was good we stayed in the community. It started to snow, fairly heavily. Fortunately, it wasn't too cold so it didn't freeze. Our first snow of the season.

I go thru phases where I carry EVERYTHING in a huge purse.

Right now I've downsized. But I think I have some mints in there, too.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! ...Eighteen days left. Keep the spirit going and enjoy the snow from the warmth inside your home and the comfort of your newly refurbished furniture.
HO! HO! HO! and a Merry Meow to all of you!
