Things get less elaborate each year, but I'm still able to fill the house with wonderful friends and we have a nice, quiet afternoon of laughter, wine-sipping, and story-sharing. This year, I had a few children visit, for a change. Lily and Hannah are the adorable and well-behaved daughters of my friend and personal trainer Jeremiah and his wife Jamey.
Tattoo Man and his wife Roz are guests each year, as are Brad and LaSandra (in rear).
My friends Jim and Margaret
Joe and Lily
Because of my inattentiveness, none of the other photos came out well enough to show here. But you know, this is a Route 66 blog and my party has very little to do with Route 66, so I'll stop here. Happy New Year to all!
