The Last Supper

For the past few years my husband, the retired police officer, and two other fellow police retirees have provided security for a very exclusive Golf Club. Well something happened and although the club was pleased with their work they were not allowed to continue in this job. They got CANNED! However, the club invited them back for a Christmas Dinner, which was tonight. We had a lovely dinner, with many of the staff coming over to give the guys personal gifts and special treatment. Of course the guys loved this. It was one of the first dinners we had gone to that my husband has not won the grand prize. It started to be a joke that "why bother putting your ticket in the drum, Andy's going to win anyway." My boys were looking forward to a new WII. The Club must be commended they sent these guys off quite nicely. I'm not sure the Police force did as well, with a heck of a lot more commitment. It just goes to show you there are jobs where employers still take care of their employees like their special. It certainly makes for good business. I'll miss him working there, since he got fed as well. That means I have to cook 3 more nights a week, and listen to grumbling about how he'd like something with more spice or no onions, or garlic. I'll be looking for another place for him soon. I liked my 3 nights a week of peanut butter and jam sandwiches. Oh well this too shall pass.

Irene, If I offend you about my post I truly did not mean too, I know that daughter did and is doing the best thing for her mom, I seriously believe that, again if I upset you in any way I am sorry, please accept my apology.
Hugs to you

p.s. PB&J's are an excellent source of some of the food groups in my eyes
you get protein from the peanut butter, you get your fruit from the jelly, and you get carbs from the bread, that's my thinking, although my husband is the same way, more spices, fried instead of baked, and o I didn't mention if he had his way he'd have potatoes of some kind every night, goodness sakes...I tell him "Just eat what I cooked, or go without" and guess what he eats, but he does add "flavoring" to his food.

National Pet Day...

This is our pet cat, he lived with us for 18 years, adopted from a shelter, best cat ever. RIP Keahan
