Joyce, Mary and Pam. That's Pam and Ernie's Phaeton.
To the left is Fran and Mary's Itasca Sunrise, Ken and Nancy's Bounder and the front cap can be seen of Dale and Linda's Winslow. We are to the left of the Phaeton.
Clockwise, starting with Wayne's bald head at lower left. Mary and Janie are sitting at the table.
Far side starting at the far end are Fran, Charlie, Ernie and Pam (taking my picture). Dale makes the toast.
|Cheers from Duane, Pam and Wayne|
Joyce and Nancy photo bombed by Mary who's had a thimbleful of wine (her limit).
In the background I see Sue, Linda, part of Dale, Janie and Duane.
Fran takes great pride in keeping his sauce recipe secret.
According to Rick, "We don't care about the recipe... just bring on the sauce."
|Wayne, Dale, Louise, Charlie, Fran, Linda, Sue, Mary and Duane.|
Mary isn't mad, she had the thimble full of wine and will soon do something hilarious.
|Happy Dale To You!|
The Queen's court consists of Mary, Louise, Wayne, Sue, Ernie, Pam,
Joyce, Charlie, Linda, Dale and Ernie screaming.
I took the picture. I'm always taking the pictures.
|Me, The Birthday Queen giving my royal look wearing my tiara.|
|My two best guys, Wayne and Ozzie.|
|My girl, Lexie. We are letting her hair grow long, trimming just her face, feet and sanitary area.|
A return trip to Ciaos Restaurant is Joyce's special farewell request and we were happy to comply. Surprisingly, or maybe not, we were seated at our usual large table in the rear of the restaurant.
|That's me doing front and center with Wayne behind me. |
Fran, Ken, Nancy, Mary, Joyce and Charlie round out the table.
|My fist dinner. I forgot the details.|
|Wayne's dinner. Forgot the details of this one too.|
|Looks good but I don't know what it was. Seafood something, I think.|
|I forget the restaurant owner's name, but she is always there, always cooking and always greeting her patrons to make them feel at home. She took a break to get in the photo tonight.|
The next morning, Charlie and Joyce would pull out, leaving all of us behind.
|The girls club include, L to R, Janie, Linda, Nancy, Sally, Wet Head Pam, Farewell Joyce, Large Lavender me and Mary.|
Upon seeing this picture, I dieted to lose 10 pounds. Thanks so much.
Two nights after Joyce and Charlie left us, we mourned for them by eating. Joyce left us a farewell dish of beef / salsa dip which we literally devoured. Such good food, such good friends. Missing Charlie and Joyce though.
|Ken scooping into the beef / salsa dip.|
|We had a nice, but short, week long visit from old friends Russ and Cheryl who drove down from Ohio. |
Sadly, I failed to get a good picture of Cheryl.
|Same picture as the one of Ken above.|
Hope Joyce will enjoy knowing how much we enjoyed the dip.
|Mary with her glass wine... again.|
|Sweet Sue keeps the wine and the smiles flowing.|
|Nancy, Wayne, Dale's back and Pam's back.|
|Linda, Nancy, me, Pam and Pam's good friend, Janet.|
|L to R: Capt Kennie, Dale, the Wayner and Ernie.|
|Time for mimosas!|
|Linda and Dale|
