Last Friday, while I was being scoped at both ends, the library ladies had their Halloween party. They finally took me up on the idea that we should just do an "anarchist's potluck" for these events. No sign ups, no assignments, what you bring is what you eat. So if everyone makes dessert, you lunch on dessert. Usually it works out that people bring a good variety of foods. And it saves the last person to sign up the pressure of trying to figure out what to bring for a salad. (Let's face it, everyone signs up for apps or dessert.) Anyway, they finally believe me that it works now. (And apparently this was a popular dish.)
This week we had a new person. In fact, over the last few months, we've had several new people start and they have all been on the young side. (Ahem, my age.) I might have to come up with a new name for "old lady stitching."
