Sunday, June 19
There must have been Amish church in our neighborhood. It was a beautiful morning for scooters and open buggies and we met many as we drove to our church.
Lunch was our annual friends birthday dinner – this year at Mark and Marcy’s house.
There was also a vegetable and salad that I didn’t photograph.
We enjoyed a delightful, delicious lunch. Our hosts, Mark and Marcy, are on the left and next to Marcy is Emma Jean (or Cookie as she is known to us). Her husband Gene was not feeling well so was not able to come. Next is Gerald, whose wife, Joanne, died from cancer three years ago. She is keenly missed at these dinners. Cerwin has his back to the camera and my chair is empty because I am taking the picture.
We get together once a year to celebrate our friendship. This group of eight began many years ago because the ladies birthdays are in the same month – February. Sometimes we are together in February and sometimes we prefer a warmer month.
When our children were small, the group was much larger because together we have thirteen children.
We finished our meal with this delicious strawberry dessert.
Marcy is a talented decorator, so beauty abounds in their house.
Time always goes so quickly when we are together, and soon our visit was over.
