Homespun Holiday - All December Birthdays, BBQ & Potluck Party.......

In the (new) grand tradition begun by Bob, Lynn and Kathy, we continue with Boomertime monthly Birthday Bashes....all are welcome, not just those with birthdays falling in the month....however, space is limited so please be mindful of your r.s.v.p.s and change accordingly....

Everyone needs a party to celebrate their birthday, a special time just for you.......This is how Boomertimers honor all our members as their Birthday Month arrives......So, come one, and all, for a great time "again" at Janis' fabulous home.....

Bring some meat to burn, as you like it, and a healthy side dish to share.....along with your beverage of choice; BYOB....Bring a chair; outdoor gathering as the weather dictates.....ya just never know in Texas!....and a laughing attitude. You will not be disappointed......

All birthday folks will have their names on the cake (with one big candle) Ha...I'm putting Bob in charge of this....

So, be sure and note that it is "your" Birthday month when you RSVP (in the comments)....This is your special party....

Remember when you went to Grandma's house for the holidays....she lived out in the country....she had lots of space....large decks, fire pits, games to play like ping pong, washers, pool...it was OK to wear your 'ugly' sweaters and big scarves....cause you just wanted to be warm playing outside...and maybe you sang some carols?.....

There is an opening here for a music director slot.....volunteer to make some copies (you'll be reimbursed) of familiar carols and we'll be singing.....we'll have some great rock & roll holiday season and classic seasonal tunes going as well....

We will ask all the non-birthday folks for a voluntary donation of a $ 3.00 to pay for the cake and ice cream, plasticware, cups, plates, etc. and help out the host/hostess with expenses and the clean up.......Thanks.....

Note: please drink responsibly and consider a taxi...

UPDATE: Names on the cake, so far: Ellen, Sammie, Ramona, Elaine, Woody, Sandy, Stacey, Cheryl, Tina, Donnie, RB, Gissele, JB, Priscilla, Paul, Tom....

    Congratulations and thanks to Janis. She kept the cold rainy weather off our minds and replaced it with warm fuzzy feelings of friendship. As Yoda would say, "Such a great party, it was."
    p.s. Janis your chili was delicious. Also thank you everyone else for your contributions of food and moola.
    Welcome new-boomer Bill F. Glad you could join us.

    Hi Friends! Ready for tomorrow!? Rain or not, we will have a fabulous time! A big pot of chili is on the stove this morning, and corn muffins in the oven tomorrow! Parking is plentiful on the street, or feel free to pull into the driveway but please park on either side so people can come and go freely. And, flashlights are helpful returning to your car after dark - look forward to seeing y'all! :)

    If any Boomers have canopies they're willing to loan we can set them up and have a few dry zones outside?

    The forecast has improved. A week ago they predicted the high temp would be 40. As of today the forecast says high of 58. Thank you all for positive thoughts.

    Ouch! As of today (11/29), the weatherman is predicting 100% chance of rain on Saturday. Potentially a lot of people in a confined space(s)...though some will take a rain check themselves most likely and cancel due to the weather. Let's hope the weatherman is wrong!

      Thanks Pablo! Weather is unpredictable here in central TX, so you never know.
