The day started with a most gracious invitation from Ron and Diane Garner to have a buffet breakfast at their house. So we piled in our cars/trucks (car pooled, of course) and drove to their beautiful house in Longview. There they had a tasty spread of food and drinks all laid out for us to enjoy. After that we socialized and admired Ron and Diane’s house… and Ron’s antique cars.
The afternoon was personal time. Each of us was able to shop, read, take a nap, play cards or whatever.
In the evening we had a grilled steak dinner. The park has a large grill that we could use, and we all brought our own meat. TS members also brought an excellent assortment of side dishes and dessert. Enough to say none of us left hungry. After dinner we had our gift exchange. There were some very nice gifts too, enough to spark some enthusiastic “gift stealing”. A fine end to good day.
