Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
Thanksgiving is now in the rearview mirror and Christmas fast approaches. We will mark the start of the holiday season by attending
the Festival of Lights on Saturday, December 1 - weather permitting. As of this writing, there is a high chance of rain, in which case
our attendance will be cancelled. Watch your email and the web site as plans are firmed up. Assuming the weather cooperates, we will meet
up at 5:00 in the afternoon. See the calendar for full information. We will also have our monthly dinner gathering and a return of the Mel Brooks movies.
As of this writing, my car is still in the shop. The target date has gone from 11/2 to 11/7 to 11/9 to 11/21 to "sometime next week" with
no date indicated. I am so eager to get my car back!!
The recovery from the hurricane continues. I have gotten most of the debris cleared from the yard, the fence repairs are underway, I have
hired a roofer but they are scheduling as much as eight weeks out so it may be January before I get the work done. Seeing the number of
people who were completely wiped out and whose homes were destroyed, I count myself one of the lucky ones. But I confess I am ready for things to return to normal.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was delightful. I took some extra time off work and stayed off the computer - much to the relief
of my concussed head - and I cooked a feast (including hommemade pumpkin fudge!). It was a lovely time of rest and recovery.
I hope to see you at an event soon, I so enjoy the time we get to spend together, there are some wonderful people in this group and our gatherings
are so much fun! The Osaka dinner was such a rousing success we're thinking of making it an annual event.
Enjoy the season, in whatever way brings you smiles.
