New Year's Promenade
We started at Bob McCarroll's house for appetizers and appletinis. After close to an hour of mingling, we crossed the "park" (that's what we call the pedestrian walkway in front of the HHRichardson church) to Jon and Sue Rice's house for dinner and champagne. Then down a couple of doors to Judy Matt's for dessert and coffee.
Of course, every sort of wine and soft drink was offered in addition to what I've mentioned. But I couldn't resist the glowing appletinis, nor the rows of flutes brimming with bubbly. And what goes better with the likes of cheesecake, truffles and pies than a good cup of coffee?
We're only four days into the new year, and I've already been to three parties. It looks like it's going to be one hell of a year.
