I certainly stretched that birthday card blog out lone enough, didn't I? As usual, I have a valid excuse. Saturday my phone went out and that meant that I didn't have my computer or medical alarm functioning. I thought it might be an area problem and waited to see if it was fixed. No luck! The problem was that I changed providers in December and Quest disconnected my phone when the amount I had prepaid expired. Cox had not set me up for the phone (although they sure billed me for it). I just now got back on line.
I tell you, this technological age is turning my hair white. (Something must be doing it.)
The nice techie just left after spending a lot of time finding and fixing the problem. He took time to check everything out because I am sure he didn't want to come back. And I sure didn't want a repeat of this weekend.
Now I can finish with the photos from my trip. Moving on to New Year's Eve here are a select few of the final pictures I took.
Gail gives a fondue party every New Years Eve. We had three generations present. The little guys were in the family room, the teenagers took over the kitchen and the rest of us gathered around the dining room table.
After a few glasses of the bubbly those crazy glasses don't look so weird.
First we had tender beef cuts, new potatoes and mushrooms to dip in the fondue pots followed by desert fondue. Fruits and marshmallows were a hit with the younger set.
It's pretty obvious that these guys are enjoying the desert part of the fondue party.
The animals were not left out. Mark loves his two dogs and this one is Sugar. I would name her brown sugar, or perhaps burned sugar. She is so well trained and sweet. she deserves the name. His other dog is the same size, but black. They complement each other.
Gail has allowed the girls to add to the menagerie with two Peruvian Guinea Pigs and this sweet little miniature rabbit named Coco. I spent a lot of time with Coco in my lap petting her. Her fur is softer than velvet.
The last day of my trip my oldest daughter, Lynne, drove down to spend the day with us. And here are my three kids enjoying lots of laughs. And thus endeth my adventure.
