BULLETIN: WE’RE HAVING A VIRTUAL HOLIDAY PARTY AT MY HOUSE TODAY. SPREAD THE WORD. THE MORE THE MERRIER. READ ON!
DAY TWO AND GOING STRONG. TOO MANY REFRESHMENTS LEFT OVER. TOO MANY GUESTS WHO HAD VIRTUAL FLIGHT DELAYS. TOO MANY REASONS TO KEEP THIS PARTY GOING TODAY. SO HERE WE GO!
Back in June, thanks to encouragement from Joy Acey and Matt Forrest, I threw a virtual party in our back yard here at Goose Lake. Here’s a link to remind you of the event. https://davidlharrison.wordpress.com/2015/06/19/see-you-at-the-grill . We partied on for three days.
Now another friend, Sara Johnson, Content Director at Shell Education, suggests that it might be time for a holiday party, this time indoors. I don’t know if we can last three days again, considering how busy folks get this time of year, but we’ll start today, hope for a great turnout, and see how it goes. I think we have enough chairs and conversation groupings. You can also sit on the floor or the hearth. The carpet’s new and the candles won’t burn you so move them aside.
You don’t need to bring anything but if you have a favorite recipe to share, that would be lovely. Well okay, I suppose some holiday tidbits or perhaps a drop or two of something festive would be appreciated by all, so let your conscience be your guide. By the way, there’s nothing wrong with bragging on your kids/grandkids or sharing a poem if you’re brave enough to stand up and present it. This IS a party after all!
And not to go all syrupy on you but I feel blessed to be surrounded by friends and family today and want to say so. Thank you. Thank you for taking time to be here and share in the pleasure of one another’s company. Most of us talk back and forth all year but we’re almost never all together at one time. Is this nice or what!
That’s it. I don’t know who will show up today but if you have a specific question for anyone in particular, I’ll do my best to get it to him or her.
So come early, drink deep from the cup of friendship, and stay as long as you like. Spread the word far and wide. Tell your friends and tell them to tell their friends. Let’s party!
