Another Christmas with Friends

Today we were invited to celebrate the holidays one more time with Friends in Wesley Chapel. We left for the ride back home and arrived at the home of our good friends Don and Linda by about 10:30

After some crackers and cheese and a glass of wine, we enjoyed a delicious meal of Turkey and all the fixins.

We finished off with a superb chocolate cake ordered special from Publix. Outstanding! The dinner was so good ( and Linda made this new cornbread/sausage/apple stuffing that was perfect!) that even Rich could only handle one piece of cake. But Don and Linda sent him home with enought for a very large midnight snack.

So they cleaned it and wrapped it to allow it to heal. Buy Cheyanne wanted to continue to chew the bandage. Unfortunately, Cheyanne was left with no choice but to wear the cone to keep him from pulling off the bandage. He and his brother Dakota both still enjoyedtheir special holiday treats though.

Pickleball is generally played on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings at Meadow Pointe, but Don had contacted the group to see if anyone wanted to come out and play while we were visiting.

To the right is our "Pickelball Family Photo" Judy and Misty are mother and daughter - along with their significant others. Bottom left is Ruthann. This is the first we have seen her in a long time, since her knee surgery. Today she made it through four games and was quite pleased. And rouding out the pictures is Mary and Renee. Mary's love of running allows her to cover the court better than any of us, and Renee - well she is the very first one of our friends that we introduced to the game of pickleball.
