Bev Allen and Chez Nous

I'm sure Mom and Dad remember Bev Allen - she is the artist that they had lunch with her several times at Chez Nous. She is in the hospital after a fairly serious fall last Friday. I've been spending time with her to help her pass the time. One of her sons does live close by - in Peoria, I think. That plus computer work today kept me gone all day.

It looks like she may be going to move at least temporarily to Grandview Terrace - right by the hospital here in Sun City West.

Bev was supposed to go to brunch with us at Mandala's on Saturday, may be just as well she didn't. When I told her what we had, she said it sounded really awful.

By the way, Catherine, any ideas on when you would like to go to Persian Garden?

I did stop by Chez Nous a couple of times - it was very quiet. I talked to both Rosemary and Angela. Rosemary said that Angela did have two people for coffee this morning - her parents.

A slight mix-up on the movie for this Friday, but we've got it covered.

The latest

Happy Day after Thanksgiving! Trust everyone had an excellent Thanksgiving Day! If you haven't heard I had the opportunity to work. Quite the day, I was there at 10 am to let the cooks, oh I mean chefs in and the first guests began to arrive at 10:30! Quickly the one chef said, "it is 12 noon that we are to serve?" Speaking of serving Serena just brought me in my hot cap of tea! Back to yesterday, the meal went fine, I brought home many leftovers from carrot puree to green bean casserole made with fresh green beans! All the food was wonderful, all made from scratch. This couple who did the catering (at $14 per person~~~~ a deal) Ah, that is another long story, the hope was to have Discover credit card folks pay for the meal, but then the promise came of more dollars in the future and $200 for now. Last year we had an assisted living facility cook the meals......but their kitchens did not want to participate this year! We served a full house (had been turning away names for the last two weeks plus!) of 75 folks and some did use those donation envelopes we had handy, as whenever we had the opportunity to say, this year it was necessary for us to purchase.....

This time tomorrow or sooner we will be on our roadtrip to California, and then get on the VISION on Sunday for the Mexican Riviera cruise. If the trip is extended we will be fine with the amount of stuff we take!

I am about to go and have some of Serena's muffins.....pumpkin ones! The small loaves of pumpkin bread that Serena made for me to hand out made a big hit.

Was anyone in the stores this morning at 5 am? I saw where some opened at 3 am!!! I almost wanted to go just for the experience of it all!

I do want everyone to know that I continue to read and enjoy the posts even when you don't see my name up on the screen! Ah, that picture of me......Andrew gets the credit for taking it this last July. I have even more grey hair now! And Serena is the poster. Best of weekends to one and all! Roberta

Caught the changes..............

Serena, I did just catch the changes and corrections you made to the Brunch with a bunch.

We have been chasing around tonight, hopefully now have ALMOST all the food we need for the Hawaiian meal on Thursday at work. We ended up going to the COSTCO at Christown, for special chips (Hawaiian) and a pulled pork dish that I sure hope is good!

Did I mention on the blog about the main office marketing folks sending out 850 "special" invites for the return of the hot lunch on September 1. The only problem is that we can only take 75 total, and we had 65 total on Friday the day the invites were sent out. So today two of us were fielding the calls, and saying, "sorry all full" which most people could not understand! September 1 is going to be quite exciting, there will be a drawing that day for many prizes, the top one being a free meal for one weekly for one year! Samples of future desserts, free samples (like Costco!) and and and.

I just tried to work the spell check here, but without success..............off to set my alarm, see some of you at the Morgans at 7:30 or so.................Best of Tuesdays to one and all..........Roberta the blogger
