The time to celebrate has arrived a but it will be a little different-as we lost Sue and Mitch this year.  2020 started out well and then turned quite badly with our losses and the pandemic.

We decided this year to be a small gathering and have it at home where we can control the environment.

Miss Mary, a very extra special friend, and Robin took over the running of the celebration and they did a magnificent job. Thank you, thank you, and thank you!

Robin and Mary worked hard to make everything nice!

"OK ladies, how can I help??"

"You want me to watch the turkey?"

Robin is armed with a thermometer!

The A-Team is ready to go!
