New Year's Day Open House
The traditional New Year's Day Open House at our place welcomed a cadre of friends from the community including the daughter of one of our friends from California and another former colleague and his wife from Oregon. There were both healthful and frighteningly sinful goodies available plus some formerly sinful but now healthful items like nuts and chocolate. Some formerly healthful but now perhaps illness producing foodstuffs like lettuce and spinach were barred from the groaning board.
We once again give thanks for a year more free from pain than most others in this world and to a group of friends who continue to be important parts of our lives. The knees are a bit tender this morning after more than three hours of standing and fetching food refills from the basement ice box, but it was well worth all the effort.
