    Joey, Mary, Yvette, I, and four dogs took a walk on the wild side, and then settled down at the lawns at Bloemendaal House. We defended 13 chairs for those who had signed up for this event, but finally gave up because nobody else showed up. Still, it was a relaxing evening with music, food and drink. Our doggies made a lot of new friends, and later on, Drew and Deborah joined us, and we had fun.

    Quotes of the evening:

    - Traudel, referring to a tree: 'LOOK! It's a girl!"
    - If he licks that wine off, he's going to be drunk.

    Wow. We can 'walk on the wildside' (Traudel may have to Google that reference!) and then eat, drink and listen to music with our PUPS!!!! Doesn't get much better than that. Looking forward to it.
