It was interesting that so much preparation went into the dinner with all the shopping and work involved and the dinner lasted such a short time. We started the meal around 2PM and by 4PM the hall was almost empty of the diners. Many people ate quickly and then left to go back to their units. As usual, Gerry and I were among the last to leave the hall.
It was an excellent dinner and we managed to get more than our fill of turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing, and all the sides. The dessert table was overflowing and the sides were plentiful. Nobody went hungry and the talk and chatter was non stop. We sat with the Rons & Dees. Yes, two sets of friends with the same first names.
Some pictures from the day are below.

Steve and Judy stopped by the motorhome to see what it looked like and we had a very nice visit with them. Later Ron & Dee C came by after the end of the football game and joined the 4 of us for a visit. Some adult beverages were enjoyed by some and we had a steady stream of jokes and conversation until late in the evening.
We had a number of phone calls today from our children and friends. It's always nice to talk to them on holidays and remember good times from the past. We didn't have an opportunity to call our good friend Judy R to wish her a happy birthday. We didn't forget it, though and hope she enjoyed the double celebration today. We have a lot to be thankful for our family and good friends.
It was a long day but we enjoyed the company and had a great time. Now it is time to put this blog to bed for the night and catch up on some much needed sleep.
