Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
As of November we have moved to an electronic newsletter. Life has not been normal for most of us since
the hurricane in one way or another. As a result, I did not have the time I had hoped to have for this first
issue. My apologies.
Due to the Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving Holidays, and where they fall on the calendar this year, we found
we did not have enough free weekends to hold all of our usual events. So November is going to be a pared down
month, but December will return to a more full calendar. We planned to have a trail walk at the lower trail at
Maclay Gardens - we've never walked this trail as a group and I was looking forward to it. But we learned the
trail was damaged from the hurricane and is closed. So that will be postponed to another time. Since the 3rd
Wednesday is the day before Thanksgiving, we have shifted the PIG*SIG for this month to the second Wednesday,
and we are going to a location we have never been before - Osaka Japanese Steak House. Due to the nature of the
restaurant, we ask that you please let me know if you plan to attend and how many will be in your party. That
way I can give them a head count when we arrive. You don't have to give me a lot of advance notice, if you let
me know by 6 p.m. that day, November 14, that will be sufficient. For those of you who never been to Osaka, they
prepare the meal right there at the table and the chef puts on a very entertaining show. For those of you who have
been there, you know how much fun it is! I hope you can join us! I love that place!
