The Neighborhood

We had a great neighborhood gathering of 14 last night for a pot luck.  We had apps, mushroom soup (from me) a salad, meatloaf, cornbread, a noodle salad with vegies and shrimp, roasted vegies and two desserts.  It was great fun.

This morning we gathered at Kathy's house for Stitch and Bitch..  I worked on some Days For Girls bags and knitting while Kathy herself put on binding on a baby quilt she quilted here yesterday.  Linda went through my new quilt magazines and knitted and Janie did needlework.

Kathy opened a package that contained this lovely pendant.  It is to cut threads with.  Clever, clever.

While recently at Cabela's, I was ready to pay for my purchases of gun powder and bullets, the cashier said, "Strip down, facing me." 

Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about the gun control wackos running amok, I did just as she had instructed.
When The hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out that she was referring to how I should place my credit card in the card reader. 

I have been asked to shop elsewhere in the future. They need to make their instructions to seniors a little clearer. I still do not think I looked that bad.

My girlfriend sent this to me and I found it extremely funny.

Sounds like fun. We tried to get something similar going here but our neighborhood is pretty diverse age wise, with everyone still working, so finding a date where everyone was available proved impossible. Glad you are enjoying your new neighborhood!
