    It was fun meeting a new group of people. We had a nice walk around downtown Tacoma, which was nice.

    My surprise didn't happen for 2 reasons; 1) I had been so busy the last couple of weeks I hadn't had the time to put it together, and 2) I needed the Brick House Gallery to be open for the entire surprise to happen. You'll have to wait until next Third Thursday to see what my surprise is. Other than that I had a good time with all.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
