Little Mountain Estates Christmas Party, 2006
The ladies of the park do a good job of decorating for the event. This is a general scene showing a few of the tables and some of the people who were there.
Pat had a new "little black dress" that she iniated at this event and she really looked great in it. It is probably a good thing that we didn't have to walk too far to get to the clubhouse where the party was though as it is winter in the northwest and the little dress doesn't keep one very warm. But it sure looks good.
Pat and Dick at the party.
Here we are at our table. My neighbor, D. T., took these photos of the two of us with my little Sony camera. It doesn't do as good a job as the Nikon SLR but it fits easily in a pocket so is a lot easier to carry around. And it's photos look pretty darn good.
Here is my beautiful lady alone but sitting beside me.
And here is another of us taken in the library room at the clubhouse with us standing on the fireplace hearth to get closer to the big wreath behind. It really enhances the Christmas time feeling of the photo. We had quite an audience while doing this and perhaps should do it next year for all couples or individuals there who would like a photo of them. I'd take the Nikon and some better flash equipment for something like that but it might be a good idea.
We have been finishing our Christmas shopping and getting Christmas cards started. Today we mailed the first of the cards while at Starbucks for our mochas and the mail box outside the store was so full I wasn't sure we could get ours in. That was only ten minutes before the pickup time and that was ontime, so it was easy to get ours included and the first of them are enroute. I even have most of my gifts wrapped and am at home now to make this post to give Pat some time without me so she can get some gifts wrapped that she says she can't do with me there. I wonder why she can't do it with me beside her?
Now, don't you think you should be using some of that time apart to do some Christmas shopping and wrapping of your own? ;D hee hee
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS, DICK!
Pet Huggy for me! :-)
Beautiful companion and I love her dress! Great pics, of course. I also love your idea of doing portraits for folks next year.
Party on bro!
I did too.
Seems like you are going to have a wonderful Christmas this year, sharing it with Pat.
Take care, Merry Christmas .... Meow
