What a Night!

Last night's dinner was a great success at the country club. The food was excellent and everyone seemed to have a great time. I got lots of accolades...too many for my ego, in fact. My head must have swelled to twice the size. You would have thought I'd done it single handed. John and Phyllis arranged for the lodge for Friday night. Larry arranged for last night's dinner. I did the communications and sent out the reservation forms and ordered the food for Friday night. I also trouble shot.

It's a good thing too. The lodge was locked when I got out there Friday afternoon and I had called ahead to be sure it would be open. Luckily I had entered the lodge caretakers number into my cell phone. One of the committee told me Dean was not coming Friday evening and he had arranged to pick up Larry P.'s widow, Carol. I just knew he was wrong but I had to call John and have him check that out with Carol. Sure enough, Dean was coming and he and Phil were picking up Carol and in fact, were on their way. Several of us, mainly Bob A., Bobby and Karan, me and Ron's wife, Paula cleaned the lodge after we finished eating. Everyone else was outside at the cookout eating smores.

Since I am the one who lives here, I have tried to keep to the committee's decisions. When we went to see the Midland Theater restoration yesterday afternoon, Aaron, who was supposed to give us the tour at 2:00 didn't show up. I tried to call six or seven people to check out why that was. Everyone was gone. It was, after all, a holiday weekend. Karan drove over to the fire station and they called Aaron on his cell phone and he finally arrived over an hour late. If Karan hadn't been there, no one would have known who was supposed to have done the tour. John, who had made the arrangements for the tour, finally called me back and told us he had dealt with Aaron. So then Karan went to the fire station to have him called on his cell. To give Aaron credit, he is the director of the Red Cross here and had been up countless hours deploying volunteers to the Oklahoma tornadoes. He was taking a nap and had forgotten about the tour. But it was a headache. Half the class who had come for the tour had left and went out to the Airport Museum instead.

But it was a great weekend and we still have this morning's breakfast to go. But this is the last one I will work on. My life is too busy. I told the committee that at our last meeting.

The breakfast was also a great success. Most of those who attended the reunion came to the breakfast. We left at 10:30 and made it in time for church.

They are all so lucky to have you to organize things and I'm glad that they were properly thankful!

They certainly were. You would have thought I did the entire reunion, Clair. :)
