Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
Leaving behind the wettest December this area has ever had since keeping records, we swim our way into
January and the new year of 2019. I hope you all had a very nice season of holidays, and/or a time off work
if holidays are not your thing. Mine was marvelous and I took an entire week off work! I have not yet taken
down my tree or the lights, I find them cozy on these rainy days.
My car finally came home the Thursday before Christmas - 9 weeks in the shop, astonishingly there were
still things wrong. But at least my car is home again, which was a huge gift to me and my budget. When you
drive a high mileage, small tank car, transitioning to a gas guzzler with a huge tank is a trial! Still waiting
for the roofers, but the tarps have held through these rains, and that is a very good thing.
There has been some discussion recently on the online Mensa Connects group that some members don't want to
follow a link to get the newsletter, they would prefer to receive the PDF directly to their in-box. If that is
the desire for our group, I can certainly accommodate it, just let me know.
January returns us to a more active calendar than we have had the last couple of months - including a
group-sponsored movie at The Challenger. They do not yet have their schedule posted, but odds are good it
will be Aquaman - watch the web site for details. We'll also have an Executive Committee meeting. Want to
give suggestions for events or outings? Want to see the governing body in action? Want to have more control
over the group's direction? You are welcome to join us! Meetings are open to all members. And of course we
will have our monthly dinner gathering and the next Mel Brooks movie!
I hope to see you at an event soon!
