Rollicking at Robinson's Roost

Where has the year gone? It seems like Summer just arrived, and now it is over. The warm weather may be gone, but the warmth of friendship lasts all year long. Its time, once again, for a little socializing. The gathering is open to all members, either single, or with dates, or mates.

I'll be cooking burgers and dogs on the grill. Feel free to bring your favorite side dish or dessert. After a hardy meal we will have all of the footloose and fancy free members gather on one floor, and our couples get together on another. The theme of the night, other than having fun, will be "RELATIONSHIPS...or a lack thereof". We all know that ADD can have some negative effects on lasting relationships, whether dating or married. We will share personal experiences, ideas and effective methods for dealing with some of the irritations, consternations and frustrations that we may inadvertently heap on our dates or mates. Sharing these "problem" areas openly with non-ADD dates or mates has gone a long way towards healing old wounds and bringing about positive ideas for more meaningful and lasting relationships among our members and their mates.

I realize Tuesday is a working day for many of us, and getting here earlier than our normal 7pm time may be a problem to some. Come as early as you want (5PM-on. I can use the help, and we'll have more time to chat). We'll eat about 6:30. Although I am always reluctant to entice our members to imbibe, especially those on medication, I WILL have cheap beer and soft drinks available. Feel free to bring anything else you would like to drink. It will be very helpful to start getting a list of side dishes/desserts/salads, etc. that we can expect to be on-hand. It will make my job a lot easier.

Adventures in ADD has really become a wonderful, supportive family. I'm so happy that each and every one of you has come into my life. Love you guys. Tom

    Please let me know what you plan to bring in the food line so we won't have all salads and no baked beans, etc. Thanks to all of you for being a great part of this wonderful, supportive and fun extended family. Tom
