zzzzzzz.... Well the Holmes Florida Christmas party was kind of a bust in that we only had 5, yes, 5 total people including myself and Karen.  Dulcie from work, Rob and his friend Tom. 

One of my friends (Dick) cancelled at the last minute, a few potentials did not materialize and 3 or 4 of Karen's  maybe's did not show. Seems the older I get, the harder it is to find people with no plans and have them over. We knew it would be small, but for 3 guests it's almost not worth the work and expense of the food!  I didn't even take a picture, because the most people I could get in the group photo would be 4!

Also, we learned my name has disappeared from the front gate of our complex, so I had to walk down and manually buzz people in with my clicker from my car. Embarrassing!

At least the house is now decorated and we can throw an impromptu party just by lighting a few candles and plugging in the lights. Mom will be here Tuesday night, so we're ready for her. Just hope she likes shrimp, garlic chicken wings and spring rolls because we have a ton left over. Hope it holds till then.  Off to work 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Maybe our 0-12 Dolphins can beat the Jets today.

Sorry your party was such a bust, would probably remind Barry of some of our Rising Sun New Years Eve parties!
