It will be difficult to continue to tell the guys back in Chicago about the temperate climate here in the Pacific Northwest and keep a straight face. Steve and Christine visiting this weekend for Chelan’s 16th birthday party were greeted with cold and snow. What should have been a small amount of snow according the forecasters, ended up topping out a 6 1/2 inches at our house. Steve-the-lizard was just shaking his head as we tried to keep him warm.
The party was a huge success. Chelan was amazed with the surprise visit of Christine then the surprise visit of Sonja from New York. The party consisted of 3 hours of 16 year olds dancing in a tight grouping. Like a large organism grinding and moving in ways that would have created a 911 call if that type of dancing was going on when I was 16.
"You have got to be kidding me – I thought we could play golf out here!!"
