Old Ranch Country Club For Dinner Dancing (December 14th)

From Vicky..."What a lovely group of people you know. We had so much fun. The evening was just perfecto!!! Great music, good conversation, great flavorful salsa and great dinner too. Del even mustered up the courage to dance with Carri. OK, now that's 3 women he has danced with in his entire life, other than me. Once with Sue, a billion years ago, once at Amber's wedding with her and now Carri. Is he on a roll or what???"
