HALLELUJAH… I could hardly believe my eyes today when I saw a large bowl of mixed fruit at the end of the salad bar.  It had grapes, bananas, frozen strawberries, pineapple…and it was wonderful.  I hope there is more of it tomorrow.  I wanted to bring a bowl home for later, but I would have had to fill my pockets.

Celebrating Noon Year’s Eve lunch with Amy Hoffman.  Brit and I were with Amy and her husband, Nick Hoffman…a Salina banker, on many occasions during our working years.

I also sat with my friend since the 4th grade, Shirley Drawbaugh and …

Ivy Marsh.  Aren’t we just splendid looking in our tiaras?  Leo Lake handed out party hats to the men and tiaras to the women.  I couldn’t keep mine on my head and our waitress looked better in it anyway.

More of the dining room…

We had what appeared to be a full dining room today.

The pièce de résistance as we left the dining room was a table full of chocolate…including hot chocolate with whipped cream and/or marshmallows.  I avoid the desserts here as they are just loaded with sugar and opt for either a banana, orange or apple.  These desserts looked very inviting so I brought a chocolate cookie home for later since they had run out of sugar free cupcakes.

Our waitress told me over lunch that she heard the forecast included 6″ of snow. It’s going to have to hurry.

This is what it looks like outside my window at 1:00.  It’s nice to know I don’t have to leave here today.  I hope next week isn’t like this as Todd, Ally and I will be on the move to Wichita on Tuesday.

Thanks for tuning in…
