December 19th was our annual holiday luncheon. Daryl generously invited us to celebrate at her house this year. She prepared a delicious ham and several of the ladies brought salads. All were delicious. We were a small group but we had a good time. The highlight for me was when Winnie pulled out some old poems to read to us. This led to a conversation about fathers and grandfathers who loved reciting poetry. Marguerite still remembers some of the oft told poems of her fathers' and kindly recited them for us. Later, Sook Rho, the Korean lady who used to come to Nimblefingers joined us. She is still keeping busy working with her husband at their little restaurant. We were all happy to see her but do wish we could see her more often. We talked and talked and ate and ate (Daryl's bon-bons were a hit!) and the time passed quickly. It was a very cosy holiday luncheon.
