Can it be true? I don't feel "almost sixty" and I have a lot of friends that are, let's just say, "sixty plus". The Gaggle of Giggling Gals ( we are all Realtors, so this party has become rather exclusive to just Realtors over the years) sponsored this party at my house last Thursday. At one time we all worked together, but over the years changes have taken place and we have changed brokerages, but we all gather to giggle and talk Real Estate. The truth is if they sponsor and I host then I can drink all the wine I want, which is sometimes as much as 2 glasses, lol. We had Ina Gartens Seafood Stew ( which is even better than my old version..could it be the whole bottle of wine and the Sambucca??) and Banana Cream Pie from a bakery in Providence. We also had a delicious salad that I dreamt up. Hearts of Romaine with mango and thinly sliced red onion and a balsamic honey vinagrette. My friends always laugh because I am not a big "salad person" but I make up the best combinations. I have to say it was delicious and I have become a big Mango fan...thanks to my friend Jano and her daughter Zid ( Elizabeth).
I thought I had destroyed all the photographic evidence, but in the interest of honest journalism I am posting the picture; let's hope it doesn't break anyones' computer. My friend Diane is behind the camera and my friend Lynn... where is Lynn hiding, what about Anita? In real life I am much thinner and cuter, at least I hope I am.
Lisa (without a blog) could you send me your email address so we can talk about Vermont? I am feeling homesick.
