Middle of the Table

I'm just killing time until some co-workers and I head to St. George this afternoon. Tomorrow I'll be doing some fascinating presentations on Disposition Posting Reports and how to read and understand them. Just think Debbie, if you still worked for the AOC you would probably be there also.

In the middle of the table we heard half of each conversation. Cloe related a truly miraculous story of how her $80 sunglasses were found after being lost on the JetStar2 at Lagoon. That lead to the question - was there ever a JetStar1?

Ellen will be doing some SPEED DATING on Halloween. We wondered what happens if more men show up than women - or vice versa. Good luck Ellen! Hope you get a treat and not a trick! Ha ha! That's some Halloween humor.

Ellen and Sam are very distantly related by marriage. There's a Sowards in Manassa, Colorado who married a woman who's related to the Deckers, and she has a lot of photos and stuff, so you'd think I'd pursue that and get some information.

Amy said some of her former classmates have some very interesting things on MySpace. She didn't elaborate, which I found suspicuous. We also enjoyed the "old man smell" and the "toxic chemical" stories.

Shauna wants out of Young Women. Let's hope her Bishop reads this!

Seacrest out.

Hello darlings! And may I call you that? Because you are darling.

Roxane's blog re EDG 10/20/08

Last night we had our monthly Emeritus Dinner Group at Leatherby's. In attendance were Debbie, Leslie, Shauna, Adrienne, Cloe, Annette, Amy, Debbie and me. Leatherby's was pretty busy and noisy, so I could only hear Leslie and Debbie, and Shauna and Amy but only when they turned their heads towards my side of the table. So my recollections will only include what was said by Leslie and Debbie, and part of what was said by Shauna and Amy, on account of I didn't hear anybody else. Amy recounted a near trauma during her recent visit to her father's house, when she thought the house smelled like "old man." Turns out it was just some fish that her father had cooked before Amy got to the house. Then there was some conversation about whether old men and fish smelled the same. This issue was left unresolved. Amy also brought us up to date on her mother's hazardous waste collection, which has now been moved out of the house. Debbie and Leslie and I discussed the newly announced Calgary temple with Leslie. Debbie thought that the Cardston temple was near Calgary, but according to Leslie it is about 3 hours away, as is the Edmonton temple. Leslie and I discussed her sister's dogs, as I always enjoy talking about dogs. At one point near the end of the dinner Debbie was so full that she thought aloud that she might hurl. Shauna thought that this might make a good picture for the blog, but the hurl did not occur so no picture was taken. I took a video of the entire group with my cell phone but my cell phone videos are not of very good quality. When leaving we saw two people that we knew not of the dinner group. It was a busy night at Leatherby's.

This is a New Beginning!

EDGinc...The chosen women of Winder 14th has a blog! We have been friends for many years and the Emeritus Dinner Group (EDG) have been meeting each month (with some gaps but none of late) since November of 1997. Originally it was just 4 but has bloomed to be many more!

This blog will be used to keep up-to-date happenings in our lives--if you so wish to share. Also, members that are no longer geographically here (but always in our hearts) can stay in the know as well.

You can send me pictures and words for now until we work out how we can all do this.
