Dinner for 21 was at our house Saturday night. The occasion was an early Thanksgiving for folks associated with a group Wifey belongs to. It's spiritual in nature.

The group meets once a week to sing, chant, share, pray, and to share their intentions for the week. Nice people with a wonderful purpose.

Sharing, singing and chanting is not my deal nor is voicing my intentions. They also do a lot of hugging. All of these things are not Bob. While I support the group I am definitely not a part what they do. Bob is not the touchy, feeling type of guy.

It was a fun evening & enjoyable but one hellofa lot of work. We prepared baked ham and barbecued turkey with mashed potatoes, and cranberry relish. The guests brought before meal snacks, salads, desserts and drinks.

Three tables to seat 20 were lined up in the kitchen/family room area. I ate standing up.

With my help Wifey cooked and cooked and cooked. And again with my help she served and served and served. And then while I conked out with the help of Dawn and Keith Wifey cleaned up and cleaned up and cleaned up.

And then on Sunday there was more to do. Whew!

Some came alone. Some came with dates. Some came with significant others.

Wifey enjoyed being with her friends when she wasn't doing stuff.

After dinner I put on some music and a few people danced.

At the end of the evening everyone, except Bob, hugged and left with smiles on their faces.

Will we do this again next November? Hmmm. Let me think about that for a year. I'll get back to you on this. My people will call your people. Okay?
