Ruth Bryan held her annual Emily Post high tea. This year’s intimate friend of the hostess was Annie Bassoni. As you can see, she took her job as, well, as Annie Bassoni. Emily Post was likely turning in her grave. The rest of us were laughing. I recommended Annie use this photo as her facebook profile picture. We’ll see.

Meanwhile, in the kitchen, Stacy Yelton was instructing Kazuko Hioki and Ruth Bryan on the finer points of the Carol Merrill wave.Let’s Make a Deal; it was trip down memory lane and a show with which Kazuko was unfamiliar. She’ll remember it from now on.

Just off the kitchen sat Judy Sackett with the puzzle. Being the queen of puzzles, she had the pieces organized into separate Ziploc baggies by color or style for easy(ier) assembly. It’s too bad it wasn’t the puzzle Judy told us about. The one whose box cover picture was backward. That would have been a challenge. It may have required more than tea.

Making her first appearance in the outhouse is Ruth’s mom, Carol, here enjoying a robust cup of hot chocolate. She’s always smiling and pleasant. Stacy and I didn’t get to stay for the Christmas Carols as we were due at Good Shepherd, but we packed in plenty of laughter while we could. Plus, Stacy taught the girls the Carol Merrill wave, so it was a successful event I’d say. I do so love my co-workers, and Ruth’s mom, too.
