The food was equally delicious, as were her Pumpkin Martinis (sinful, but oh, so good!).
Here is her SO's bulldog, Tank, dressed for the occasion. I must confess that I bought it for him and he kept it on all day. It didn't seem to bother him at all, but he is used to wearing a collar and an occasional scarf. He is a very mellow dog, as are most of that breed.
I have many things for which to be grateful, but especially that this year my sister has moved into a house two doors down from me. We are the best of friends and this is so much better than her being on Long Island, over a two hour drive away, depending on weather and traffic. She moved in about a month ago and is settling in very nicely. She is already friends with most of my friends, since we travel together, and we are having a grand old time.
