Another year is here and boy am I glad.  Time to celebrate life.  We had an indoor barbecue.  The Chef made a nice buffet of hot dogs and hamburgers, all sorts of sides, and lots of fruit , pastries and cookies.  We all roamed in there throughout the day to sneak extra helpings.  It was fun to celebrate so in the middle of winter.  We watched the Rose Bowl parade, it was quite interesting this year.  Afterward, a number of the guys retired into the rec. room to watch the football game.  Don’t ask me who won.  I was busy playing pinocle with a few guys.  I won!  A whole $15.   The ladies were scattered around playing pan, bridge and scrabble… plus watching reruns of the parade.  They didn’t have enough the first time.   The day ended with hot chocolate and tea, and leftover cookies.  All had an enjoyable time.
