It was earlier this year, a great way to kick off the holiday celebrating. It was Becky's Brunch, hosted by our long time friend and associate of Tom's teaching alma mater, Des Moines Elementary School. (That's Des Moines, Washington, a town on the Sound south of Seattle, for you non-locals.)
There were beautifully set tables and great food, all prepared and served up by Becky, the hostess with the mostest.
There was lots of talk. Teachers are good at talking, you know, even retired teachers, and their friends are too.
Here we are in our official photo. That's our host Becky, far left, front row, and next to her are our two 91 year olds, Mavis and DeDe. We only tell the ages of those who have reached revered status.
I didn't teach at Des Moines, but Tom did, both as a PE teacher and the kindergarten teacher. He retired from Des Moines, and for many years before that we hosted the year end party in our garden, so I am an adopted member of the clan.
Thank you, Becky. The holidays have begun. Let the merry bells keep ringing.
