Holiday Party at the Waverly Country Club

Tomorrow night is the annual festival Holiday Party at the Waverly County Club (here in Portland, Oregon). (Yes, it often seems to fall on my birthday...)

If you follow that link to the club website, you'll note that there's very little to see. Only club members can log in and really access the site. (Quite exclusive, don't cha know!)

As I've mentioned in the past, they decorate the building and grounds quite beautifully. As you come up the long drive, it's like discovering a fairyland. Yes, the inside is decorated beautifully, as well. (Various Christmas trees -- big ones -- are all over. And garlands and on and on.)

I took some photos last year, but they didn't turn out all that well. (The lighting at night and so on.) Anyway, I have several to share here under the cut.

Not exactly sure what I'm wearing, but Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I did go and tan after she got done with her (long) meeting. (She was home by 8:30 p.m., so we may it out to Desert Sun by 9:30 with no problem.)

We'll have to come home early tomorrow to get ready and head out.

I suppose it will rain. (sigh)

But in light of our recent (current?) storm locally, I guess that's okay. It could always be worse!

We have a large branch down from the tree out front (near the garage). And the tarp came partly off the swing out back -- so I had to go out in the wind and rain today to wrestle it back on. (sigh) Hopefully it will hold until I can do a better job.

Guess who I talked to late this afternoon?

If you guessed Tom, you guessed right! The sweetheart phoned to check on us and be sure we were okay (again, in light of the storm). We talked until almost 5:30 (over an hour). Then he needed to head to bed to get some sleep. (He works nights.)

Oh! I forgot to mention my package from my friend Sandy (who lives in Massachusetts). It included the most clever thing -- a sort of birthday-in-a-box. It's a small music box with a little cake that goes round and round while "Happy Birthday" plays. Cute!

Maybe I'll get better photos of Waverly tomorrow (if I can get myself to drag along the camera)...
