March Miatas for Breakfast

We were seven for breakfast in Martinez. Here are some pics:

Most of Us Most of Us TwoSunrise Miatas

February Breakfast Trip Photos

Parking Lot Shot Parking Lot Shot 2 Egg Tower Parking Lot Shot 3
A crowd gathers in the very chilly predawn darkness in the Food Lion parking lot. The Krispy Kreme doughnuts helped.
Our little Miatas looked slightly out of place in the parking lot of our breakfast spot. Don’t let the sun fool you, it wasn’t any warmer than at the start.
The giant compartmentalized egg shaped tower across the street from Bill & Fran’s keeps the place supplied with egs for scrambling, coffee and orange juice.
After breakfast we all went over to the post office to see if anyone we knew were on the wanted posters.
Parolees Closed Antique Store Open Hardware Store Opera House
Turns out we were all wanted for overeating, so we went across the street to register with our parole officer.
There were plenty of antique stores to shop at, if only they were open.
One place that was open was an old timey hardware store with it’s very own Nobel Prize in Physics.
The opera house wasn’t open either, but if we wanted to hang around for another 10 hours or so we could see the “Philip Myers Project Pet Benefit.”

Game Night Photos

Meeting Prep Nobody's Paying Attention Bingo Dominoes
President Rudy and Secretary Dave prepare to hold the monthly meeting.
But nobody is paying them any attention (which is not unusual.)
Miller called numbers while 3 couples played for fabulous door prizes.
Dominoes dominated the evening though.
Payday Sadie
Secretary Dave brought a game that he discovered in his attic, no one played it though as we had left our LSD at home.
Sadie napped, neatly camouflaged and unconcerned, on the couch.

14th Anniversary Dinner

Attendees by couples: Bogardus, Baugh, Wilmoth, Butler, Simons, Winkler, Timmerman, Nicholls, and lastly John Haff without, sadly, Carol. The virus going around struck down the Schumakers who were planning on attending and we hope they are feeling better before this Saturdays meeting/game night at the Butlers.

Its nice to see everyone duded up in their finery once a year, not that everyone doesn’t look good the rest of the year, but not as good as for a special night–and we did look good!

Good too was the food. From my vantage point at one end of a looong table, the favorite choice was the fillet. I heard several comments on how well it was prepared just as ordered ie medium, well done etc.

The only complaint I heard re:food was the creme brule. There simply wasn’t enough of it! Impressive dish with a raised bottom so it looked like there was a lot. Our private room clanked with the sound of spoons hitting dish as everyone tried desperately to find more of the delicate custard, to no avail.

Conversations included Miller Butler’s pending retirement (20+ working days and counting) and the trips hopefully being planned as a result. The upcoming game night with Rudy looking for a Trivial Pursuit game more current than the one provided for the last game night. Either Rudy is too young to remember the 80’s or he had such a good time back then that he doesn’t remember it! Fess up Rudy, which is it? Also on the subject of memory was the male memory in general or rather the lack of it! We couldn’t decide if its that bad or whether its the listening part thats bad. Comments ladies? We also heard that Stacey and Cindy are expecting another grandchild in June and a wedding is also being planned by a son other than the expectant one. Hopefully the baby won’t come on Peach Parade Day as I fear we’d miss our trusted Parade leader. Past President Dave broke a tooth on the first course and maybe the first bite! Hopefully that wasn’t a commentary on the food, but rather just coincidence and that he’s been able to get in to the dentist this week. Bobbie is busy at the tax office, but not so busy that she will miss the games–now that she knows about it. Seems Dave has been a little lax in keeping her informed. Shame! Shame!

Thats the news from my end of the table. What happened at the other end?

Holiday Party

A great time was had by all at Miller Butler’s and Gail Shaw Butler’s home for the annual MMC Holiday Party, site of the 14-foot Christmas Tree! Here are some pics from that festive evening!
