We Turned A Disaster Into A Great Evening

OK, it sounded like a good idea!  We went to the Presidents Ball at the Nixon Library sponsored by a Ballroom Dancing Group (whose name shall go unidentified).  We got there at 2:00 since we brought many of the tickets and we enjoyed the library grounds and exhibits.  As the time for the dance grew closer, we began to get worried as it appeared there were not enough tables for everyone, the dinner was sandwiches, and the music was not very dancable by us.  We stayed to watch for a while but the crowd were “ballroom experts” which means they looked a bit constrained, the music was “interesting”, and it did not look like fun.  While we are sure it must be fun for some, the twisting of heads and snapping and arms just was NOT our style.  Please join the evening!

Not our cup of tea... Did we say tea???

We decided to leave when Marianne and Craig stopped by on their way out!  Vicky & Del were next and then Jim & Jan!  We followed suit and went to Mimi’s where we had a ball.  We actually sat at a table, had a glass of wine (or two), and laughed and giggled the rest of the evening!

Making gold out of lead, our speciality

Notice… Dancing was not checked on their entry!  Thank you Mimi for rescuing us!

Cheap wine NEVER tasted so very good!
