Today ten of us, plus Tom, who knows most of this staff too, gathered at our house for our December lunch.
It was a dark, rainy day, but the house was festive and the dining room was set up and ready.
The soup pot just needed an occasional stir. When we had all gathered and greeted and hugged and checked out the decorations, we got down to the business of eating. I served up the soup in Christmas mugs.
There was dessert too, including some of those cookies I had baked.
A good time was had by all. T'is the season to be jolly!
To Andrea and Cathleen, you were missed. :-( Our thoughts are with you.
