A Gathering Of Friends

I was an early bird this morning—the First United Methodist Church choir was performing their cantata at both services today—8am and 10:30am.  As we were having company this afternoon I elected to go to the early service—I was out the door and on the road by 7:30 this hot, muggy morning.  The service was outstanding—beautiful Christmas music. 

Just after noon Ralph and Angie arrived driving down from San Antonio for the afternoon.  We enjoyed introducing them to our friends here and we also enjoyed meeting one of Michael and Rollie’s coworkers—Mickey.  Rollie was kind enough to prepare baby back ribs, I made Brenda’s cheesy potatoes and we had various other dishes making up a great meal!  For dessert we had homemade vanilla ice cream and cookies.  We are all stuffed and waddling!  We whiled away the afternoon visiting—a very good day!


Congratulations are in order for Rollie and Gina—their daughter Nicole and her husband Shane celebrated the birth of their twin baby girls on Friday.  Rollie and Gina went from having no grandchildren to four in less than two years.  We have met Shane and Nicole and wish them all the best with these two precious little girls.

Life is good!


  1. Hi, a little history you might like about the cheesy potatoes. The recipe you use first showed up in a recipe booklet in the 80,s. They were called Company Potatoes. My girls make them now and very popular in the Eastern part of the country.
    My very interesting job is to test recipes.

  2. what a great day with friends, and congrats to Rollie and Gina on the birth of the twin granddaughters! I am sure they are just beautiful!!

  3. Glad to see you guys are still eating well done there in Texas. Congrats to the new Grandparents!
