  • Holiday potluck at Carol's house!
  • The Christmas Joy Ride by Melody Carlson

    Miranda did not put adventure on her Christmas list, but thanks to her eighty-five-year-old neighbor Joy, that's exactly what she's getting this year. When Joy tells Miranda that she plans to drive an old RV decked out in Christmas decorations from their Chicago neighborhood to her new retirement digs in Phoenix--in the dead of winter, no less--the much younger Miranda insists that Joy cannot make such a trip by herself. Besides, a crazy trip with Joy would be more interesting than another Christmas home alone. Unemployed and facing foreclosure, Miranda feels she has nothing to lose by packing a bag and heading off to Route 66. But Joy has a hidden agenda for their Christmas joyride--and a hidden problem that could derail the whole venture.

    As we get closer, we will work out the potluck list, and I'll share it with everyone. If they're is anything in particular you would like to bring, feel free to include it in your RSVP.

    I will be sharing my address with all yes RSVPs.

    Thanks,

    Carol
