Happy New Year!

I gave Bob a Kalimba 17 key thumb piano for Christmas a couple years ago.  Bob had never played a thumb piano.  In one week’s time Bob taught himself this song.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2021 from Bob and me!

New Year’s Eve 2012

Bob and I attended a potluck New Year’s Eve dinner at a friend’s house.  Our friends, Garry and Linda, hosted the dinner party. Guests included family members and friends. We enjoyed great conversation, lots of laughs and great-tasting food.

This was the fifth year that we have celebrated New Year’s Eve with Garry and Linda. As always, we had a good time. Thank you for inviting us, Garry and Linda!

New Year’s Eve 2010

Bob and I spent part of New Year’s Eve in the company of friends. Our friends, Garry and Linda, hosted a New Year’s Eve party. Guests included family members and friends. We enjoyed great conversation, lots of laughs and great-tasting food. The main course was Beef on Weck, which Linda prepared. The rest of us brought dishes to pass. Bob and I brought Sloppy Joe’s.

New Year’s Eve 2009

Bob and I spent part of New Year’s Eve in the company of friends. Our friends, Garry and Linda, hosted a New Year’s Eve party. Guests included family members and friends. We enjoyed great conversation, lots of laughs and great-tasting food. The main course was beef on weck, which Linda prepared. The rest of us brought dishes to pass. Bob and I brought a meat, cheese and cracker tray. I’ve included in this blog post photographs of everyone with whom we spent New Year’s Eve.

Our hosts, Garry and Linda

Karen and John

We congregated in three rooms — the living room (shown here), dining room and kitchen.

This is “Honk” (sorry I didn’t catch his real name).

 We tend to meet someone new each year that we are at Linda and Garry’s house for New Year’s Eve. This year we met “Honk” for the first time. “Honk” brought a jug of beer to the party.

This is “Honk’s” wife, Pam.

I met Pam for the first time; however, Bob and Pam knew each other. They graduated high school together. They hadn’t seen each other since high school.

This is Jack and Sandy.
Jack has a great sense of humor; he keeps me and others in stitches of laughter.

Bob and Garry, who work at the same company, have known each other for 25 years.

Linda and Rick
Counting myself, there were three Linda’s at our New Year’s Eve gathering.

This was the third year that we have celebrated New Year’s Eve with Garry and Linda. As always, we had a good time. Thank you for inviting us, Garry and Linda!
