Holiday Lunch – December 10, 2017

Holiday Lunch – December 10, 2017

December 10th was a bright cold day – and perfect for the Ethelreda 2017 Holiday Lunch. Traverso’s was an inspired pick, and early in the day (12:30 pm) worked out to perfection as we had the whole restaurant to ourselves almost until we were ready to leave.  It is getting harder and harder to find

November 13, 2016 – Holiday Brunch

November 13, 2016 – Holiday Brunch

This was a smaller party than usually. We had fun, but overshadowing the lightheartedness of a Christmas party including Thanksgiving were the serious events that Sue went thru which were our major concern and topic. By the 13th, Sue was much better, but I wasn’t supposed to tell anyone that the Docs had told the

Architectural River Cruise – June 26, 2016

Architectural River Cruise – June 26, 2016

OH no! Clouds – Rain – THUNDER!! That was the wake-up call at 7:00 AM on Sunday, June 26th. Fret – “What do they do if it’s raining?” “Do they cancel the boat??” “Will we get struck by lightning???” “Do we get a refund????”. Then, s-l-o-w-l-y the clouds moved off to Indiana and the humidity

Between the Holidays – December 6, 2015

Between the Holidays – December 6, 2015

Our turnout for this event was lower than usual for our Christmas get-together. Those of us attending talked about whether this was because, despite the enthusiasm when it was planned to be a brunch instead of a dinner, that a brunch was more difficult to attend during this busy season. Even though the brunch was

Get Together August 22, 2015

Get Together August 22, 2015

It was the perfect day. Tucked under a beautifully marbled blue sky, the Normandy-style structure surrounded by terraced gardens and rolling lawns leading down to the softly lapping water of the lake welcomed the ’59ers. Comfortable temperature, no humidity, and not a fly or mosquito to be found. Reminiscent of Camelot, where “… July and
