The Theme of the Party: Get Your Hour Back!
Friends Gather to celebrate Friendship and Fall
This year, Lynn has spent a lot of time and money remodeling her home. We all have suggested that she have a housewarming party. Well, this is that day. Her invite went out with the caption of ‘Get Your Hour Back!’ as this is the weekend of the time change back to Eastern Standard Time and we set our clocks back an hour.
The party started inside, while the fire bugs of the group, got the fire going in the fire pit. It almost looked like a failure to light, as all the fire was a smoking embers. But after searching the alley for kindling, there was ignition and the fire was born.
So the party evolved into two parts: an inside portion where there were plenty of snacks and beverages, and the outside portion where there were chairs, fire and music. Did I say music? The ongoing joke was that Lynn hired a band for her party. The back yard of her house adjoins the back of Studio 35, and they were having live music. So every so often, I would go inside and announce about the live band. We had some takers come outside to enjoy beverages, fire and conversation.
It was nice to get out of the house for the evening. Cooper, our beagle, was glad that we returned home.
