Family Garage Sale AKA When The Moon Hits Your Eye Like A Big Pizza Pie

My brother's family had a garage sale yesterday. We joined in for some family fun.

I should have bought this poster.  I did buy the jacket. My sister said, "That's not very slimming!" 

I said "I'm buying it for someone else."


Professore Vicente scores a Halloween cap!

My brother bought pizza for everyone. This one is called "The Monster size!" 
 Biggest pizzas I have ever seen.





It's a perfect way to begin "The Endless Summer".

Not Just About A Book Club Reads Cathleen's Schine's "They May Not Mean To But They Do"

Our book club met yesterday May 25th at Grounds Bakery in Long Beach.  
We had   Lynda's  grandbaby Oaken as our Mascot for the day.  He was good as gold!



 We read Cathleen Schine's book: 



We first ordered drinks, discussed the book and then ordered lunch.
The conference room worked out great for this size group.








 Lots of great discussion as always.  We also were able to set up the schedule of meetings for the rest of the year. 


 

 
See you all in July!

   Next book on deck  is "Last Breath" by Kimberly Belle.

 Happy Summer Reading...

Girl's Night In Hosted By Lynda

On Tuesday night this week my friend Lynda hosted a Mexican Train night at her home.
We arrived at 6:30. 
Seated: Our hostess with the Mostest Lynda


 Donna and Barb

 Karen and Jo

 Sherri and Maria

 Lynda's table looked so pretty 
She had these cute domino plates for our appetizers




 Jo's stuffed mushrooms
Donna's Asian flavored guacamole



 Lynda had made a great asian themed dinner: lettuce wraps with chicken, beef with brocolli and brown rice, delicious




This was Donna's first time playing Mexican train


 We all have a hard time remembering the rules. It's going to be a challenge to teach Donna!
 Sherri re-reads the rules to us... 


 

  "I still don't understand." 

 I think more drinks will help!

 













 Also Pralines will aid our memory of the game. Thanks to Karen who brought these back from New Orleans.
 
 Now we're talkin'.  Let the games begin!











Time for some dessert.  The old recipe called "The next best thing to Robert Redford" had been renamed "Ryan Gosling" for our "La La Land groupies"





After a night of wonderful food and drink and lots of laughter there is nothing left to do but this -
 


  You can make all the funny faces you want  Lynda but you are still the hostess with the mostest and the nicest friend to all.  Love you!
