Happy St Paddy's Day!

On St Patrick's Day we had a very green and glorious party!  Cheryl and Mary were the primary cooks, but Leslie helped all afternoon and Joan came to help right when help was needed.  We had a corned beef appetizer, Irish pork stew, colcannon, Irish soda bread, Irish pub salad, Irish whiskey chocolate cake, and Baileys Irish Cream cheesecake.  AND Guinness of course (which was also in the stew).  Besides feasting, we listened to Irish music, told Irish jokes and sang a few Irish songs.  Carl led us in a song he used to sing with kids when he taught school (I think we caught on, but maybe not as quickly as the kids would have). We also welcomed our newest member, Anna Misner, who moved in this week on the coldest, windiest March day in years.  Welcome Anna!!!

Delicious dinner!

Leslie, who did a ton of prep work - thank you!

Karolyn and Cheryl - aren't they just so cute?!

The dinner crowd!

Instead of saying "Dick look up!" We should have said "Dick - look up and SMILE!"

Jim and Miles had a great time at the white board.
