Unit Christmas Party

The stocking was hung by the damage with care

It was just 7 days ago that a big old Cadillac came crashing through the wall into the bridge club, and still we managed to have a first rate party this afternoon.

Beginning at noon, the choral group Jazz Infinitum entertained with their a capella renditions.  The group is headed by Jim Heiner, and includes Iris Libby, Nancy Marling, Ann Bergmann, Jody Praklet, David Eimerl and Chuck Wong.  They seem to have a preference for minor keys, which I’ve often heard in choral groups but don’t understand, but it’s an interesting blend of doo wop and uptown jazz.  Here is a video of them doing Under the Boardwalk:

 

 

There was the customary ton of food, ranging from Costco sandwiches to deviled eggs to John Marron’s traditional English Trifle.  Someone brought a box of little liquor-filled chocolates.  I saw Eldonna nipping at one, hope she isn’t dancing on any tables tonight.

 

The classroom is now a romantic, candlelit sanctuary for the buffet.  And will be until they fix the wiring.

The bridge game got started:  there were 20 1/2 tables, divided into two sections but scores across the field.  Don Steedman and Vicki Chang had a 70% game to take home all the marbles.

People came dressed for the season.  I got my little camera out, and took a bunch of photos of whoever caught my eye.  Click on any photo and then you can scroll through the lot of them.
