But the party was so delightful, let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.
We went to our one and only Christmas party last night. It was also a memorial for the father of the host and hostess. He died a few months ago and Christmas was his favorite holiday. Thus we ate, drank and were very merry in Ray's honor.
It was a delight to see all our close friends plus new friends from the Neighborhood Watch group all mingling together having a wonderful time. The usual "are you a Mill Creeker" was heard several times. Yes a bunch of us were "Mill Creekers" and spent the evening stating how far up or down the road we lived from Jon & Janet's.
The party was so delightfulwe arrived at 5:30 figuring we'd just spend a couple of hours, we left at 11:30 only because I told Larry I was too tired to have an more fun.
Since Larry had inherited Ray's tuxedo I declared that he must wear it. He did but with a few hitches. Having never been around a non-rented tuxedo in either of our lives we didn't realize that the shirt required studs - Jon to the rescue, or how to tighten the Winnie the Pooh bow tie - safety pin to the rescue. Other than those minor hitches Larry looked great, but then doesn't every man in a tux?
I wore the outfit I wore to Jan & Mason's wedding AND makeup. I've never received so many compliments in my life. It was great but a bit embarrassing to be the center of all that attention.
