We start the evening with a Board Meeting....
Serious activities at the pre-dance board meeting
One olive for me and one for Neal
Nita has plans for the olives later in the evening....
Perhaps when the salad is served?
Let's Get The Party Started
Walter and Teri came up with a great idea... A glass of wine to everybody who checks in!
"Sign on the dotted line and don't read the small print"
Very efficient operation
The tables and centerpieces are great for this time of year...
Meretta fixed them up even though she could not make the dance this evening!
How thoughtful to come and make things nice for us even when Meretta is under the weather
Did You Know? -
I believe that "under the weather" is an old sailor phrase. When men were sick, they would rest below deck and thus were literally "under" the weather on deck
The band gets set up and music is about to begin....
Serious "catching-up on the latest" is taking place
What happens in our conversation... Stays in our conversation!
"See, I told you we could sneak right in!"
Irv and Jacque Kurman are ready to dance
"Hi there Mr. Cameraman!"
Now she tells me?
Tom bargins for a martini and is winning
Visiting lamp is on!
Remember... Leroy is watching!
"What will it be??"
"Of course I know how to make that!"
"Which one would you like???"
The check-ins are slowing down and the wine bottle is about empty... Time to start the music
"So.... This is my secret receipt for the Thanksgiving Day turkey"
