Hi Friends!

Hi Friends!  Oops, I guess I said that already. I just wanted to let you know that I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.
I'll be back and give you an explanation soon ---maybe I'll do a food blog post this afternoon!

For now tho, I just wanted to share my ladies of the Literary Luncheon.
I belong to the Literary Guild ---one of the oldest clubs in town --- and we meet once a month at an old Basque Restaurant to dine and listen to someone in the club give a book report.  December was 'our' month.  (see my friends Kathy and April standing  up there by the coke machine? Plotting and Planning how to talk about our book)   We had to decorate the tables, order the lunch, do the dessert, and give the book talk.  We also had an ornament exchange and invited the SWINGIN SENIORS to sing for us ---it was the December luncheon after all .

The Swinging Seniors!
They serenaded us with song.  Christmas song!
And they are really good.

Our table-scape!
We made a little champagne punch and had some fresh greenery on the tables.

Our book was
Christmas In Nevada
a book of short essays about --Christmases in Nevada.

I always have a great time with these ladies.
It's a lovely, once a month luncheon!

I'll be back soon.

What an incredibly great idea for a club ! I wish our little burg had one organized! I love the idea of book talks ... when I was still teaching , it was really fun to find new books that were appropriate for my reading classes and talk them up to build interst and enthusiam! Would have been even better with food and music!

Glad to see you back!
