Adios Colleen & Calhan... See You Again Soon

Great Grandson?  Geez.... We be old!   

Heading To The East Coast Tuesday Evening... 9/20/2016

But first.... Another party!  Greg, Irene, Jan and Brian are pleased to have Colleen join the weekly Malarkey's ritual.   It's our "special place" where we have become part of the Malarkey family.

Join the fun and the tinge of sadness because Colleen and Calhan are going home too soon!

Special thanks to Amy and Joe (and the kids) for making her visit so special!

"Greg is really funny!"

Saying goodbye to Colleen and Calhan at Malarkey's 09/19/2016
Greg got hold of Colleen's funny bone

Did You Know? - The "funny bone" got its nickname because of that funny feeling you get after you hit it. But your funny bone isn't actually a bone at all. Running down the inside part of your elbow is a nerve called the ulnar nerve. The ulnar nerve lets your brain know about feelings in your fourth and fifth fingers.

We dined on the finer things in life... Hot dogs with chili and club sandwiches!

Did You Know? - Chili peppers originated in the Americas. After the Columbian Exchange, many cultivars of chili pepper spread across the world, used in both food and medicine. Chilies were brought to Asia by Portuguese navigators during the 16th century. India is the world's biggest producer, consumer and exporter of chili peppers.

Careful... This is a "G-Rated" group!
