Yesterday evening a group of more than twenty people gathered for a birthday party/pot luck dinner for Jennifer Kidwell (just about everyone calls her by her childhood nickname, Jen Fu). She's had some problems with her house on the loop road (it will soon be back to normal), so we were all there to help cheer her up & cheer her on. As usual the food was outstanding -- spinach & cheese patties, Thai egg rolls, baked chicken, deviled eggs, various salads, and homemade cream puffs!
At 9 o'clock many of the folks moved on over to the Community Center to wish Lulu a happy birthday also (a surprise party was in progress there), but I had other obligations, so I missed that party. And people often wonder "what do you do on that island all winter?"!!
