Most of the Group...

Many gathered in Doris Peterson's home to sing "Happy Birthday!" and celebrate at least 50 or so--give or take a decade or two...or three--years of life, love, and family. Ribs, tri-tip, corn on the cob, three cakes, and great company rounded out a fine evening.

Dick & Jane Make Plans to Visit

My parents, Dick & Jane, booked their flight to Los Angeles for a visit. They will be here from New Year's Eve, landing at 7:00pm through January 8, 2011. They are staying at The Palms on La Mirada Blvd. in a one bedroom apartment for the week. This is free to them, since they live a a facility owned by the same company. That is very nice and they will have nice accommodations and breakfast ready for them when they are! They'll spend the rest of the day with us at the house or running around.[That guy in the photo is my brother, Ric.]
