The tea party
We had our tea party. DR made coffee which is a good thing because Joe doesn't drink tea. DR makes strong coffee and Joe like it just fine. Now, we are relaxing. I put a couple of potatoes in the oven to bake so we can have our supper in awhile. I'm afraid I ate too many cookies but when I think about it I probably did not. Talk, talk, talk, or as Wannabe called it chatting over tea.
Joe and Anna live across the street. Anna is Joe's aunt I think. She is 93 and has cancer and doesn't get out too much. She was pleased when I went over to invite them to tea today. I think because she is old and sick that people don't think to ask her out. Joe said she was watching the clock and reminded him that it was time to go to tea. She is quiet but listens and puts in her comments. She is so thin and eats very little but she had tea and the lemon cookies. I had some "store bought" butter cookies that she could eat.
Marilyn and Frank(not our gnome) live next door. His weakness is cookies and I always share what I bake with them. Joe gets his share.
When we were just talking and everyone quit eating cookies, I brought out Christmas boxes and told them that they were take out boxes and they should fill them with whatever they liked because there were a lot of cookies. So, they filled their boxes like a kid in a toy shop. I gave Marilyn an extra box to fill for the older people who live across the big street. (It's paved, ours is not so that makes it the big street) After everyone went home I filled a larger box with cookies and some little hard Christmas candies and delivered it to the kids at the end of the street. I still have to fill a box for the couple that live across the alley but that's for tomorrow. Then, I will have enough to take a box to work. I hope that uses up most of them so I don't have many left to eat myself. I saved the zucchini coconut bars for dr. Now the countdown to Christmas. Dooley

Dooley you have such a big heart. It must be a pleasure living near someone as lovely as you.
Yes it is.---Oh you mean for the neighbors--sorry--never mind
Sounded like great fun Dooley, wish I could've popped in for a cuppa. Tell Chance to hurry up with her teleportation machine project.
Sounds like a lovely time was had by all. You and DR are very considerate of other people. That is the way the world should be.
Oh how I wish I were your neighbor.I think that would the biggest joy just to be taught by you 2 would be an honor.
Yes DR you live at the perfect place :)
Actually, after the party, there was some assam tea left that I poured over ice, Very good.
