Sunday Evening, October 29
It was a rainy evening, but we looked forward to seeing friends that we haven’t seen since our last event – about a year ago.
Also, it was our first time to have a meal in the banquet area – upstairs.
Most of this “gang” have been friends since the late ’50s and early ’60s when we were teenagers – most have known each other for sixty years or more. Some were friends as children, so that takes them back more than 70 years.
Shortly after arriving, we each had a sticker placed on our back. We had to find our partner by asking yes and no questions.
Am I male? Am I a movie character.
Am I a politician? Am I a Bible character.
I learned that I was a male Bible character.
When I saw a Goliath, I asked if I was David? No.
I saw Mary. I asked if I was Joseph. No
Finally I noticed a whale on Dot Myer’s back, and asked if I was Jonah? Yes!
We enjoyed tasty snacks while visiting and waiting for our meal.

Time for the meal.
Larry (standing) and his wife, Sally (in orange) helped to organize this evening.
It’s easy for this group to find reasons to laugh.
Dean (owner of Country Home Catering and Brick Gables) gave us instructions for the meal. His wife, Carole, was catering another event.
The winner of the centerpiece on each table was the one who found the partner to the sticker on their back. If there were multiple people who found their partner, we had to decide who found their partner first. We had several, so gave it to Wilbur and Violet who had traveled the farthest – western Pennsylvania. Most of us live in the area.
After the meal, a few of the couples told about recent trips to Europe.
Brick Gables is beautifully decorated.
There is also a deli and café in the lower part of the building.
Love this place.
