    Yes, I enjoyed it a lot tho it may have seemed otherwise with my nose in the iPad. My husband is overseas and we keep in constant contact so the iPad is part of my body. Unfortunately, this system makes it hard to get to know everyone as I must stay in the loop with the person I have known for 48 years rather than meet new people for a few hours.

    My bucket list includes jumping into the ocean on New Years Day. I have a few friends who do it every year. I plan to scratch it off my list this year. Is anyone else feeling brave?

      Not me, but I'll take your picture!

    Being out of the loop for a while - what is the suggested attire (for guys). Jacket and tie? Thanks for understanding. Need to check out kennel accommodations for Lucy this weekend. If OK, I'm good to go.

    December 19, 2013

    • Jacki R.

      Cool. Anything goes. Some dress up to the nil and others are more casual.
