We had our formerly-annual Christmas Party on Saturday, December 10. Despite a large snowfall that started at 3:00 pm and is still coming down about 24 hours later, we had at least 40 people. Great time had by all, though the snow forced cancellations by a couple of dozen who were planning to come. My Marine buddy and former boss in
Jack Beerup drove up from southern Illinois
with his friend Arlene just for the party.
