House-Cooling Party

DSC_0697

A House-cooling party is the opposite of a house-warming party. Instead of bringing gifts for the house the guests recall fond memories and bring good companionship. Plus pot-luck and Sandy’s famous carrot cake in our case. Twenty-two of us gathered at Bob and Elaine’s house to celebrate, hang out together, and sing a few rounds of Dear Friends.

The people in attendance are some of the people of my tribe. I love my tribe!! I also love the peeps who were not able to attend! YaY tribe!

Fridge Art

DSC_0688I got a going-away present from the 4-year-old neighbor last week. We used to spend quiet summer evenings riding bikes in the alley and racing to the finish line. The poster depicts all the alley-related events we shared plus the truck and trailer. It has a place of honor on the RV fridge.
