Out of the prison!

I went to bookclub last night (No, I didn't read the book - no time!).
I had forgotten what gourmet chefs those women are! Man, what fabulous food! Sarah made a broccoli/artichoke sort of casserole, the new girl, Melissa, made marinated asparagus, Stacy made an Indian pudding, Laurel made a spinach/citrus-y salad, Lori made feta cheese kalamata olive/phyllo cups, Gina made a cheesy potato dish, and I (Todd) made Mrs. Flaggert’s Oatmeal Tarts, which I renamed Honey Tarts since “Oatmeal Tarts” sounds bland, and they are NOT bland! It was nice to see everyone again, even though I had to take H, and he fussed the whole time (except when Stacy held him – he loooooves her!). So next time, no baby!
I even partook in Sarah's famous Sangria, which truly delivered and made the baby extra happy when we got home since alcohol stimulates the milk-producing glands. He went right to sleep and slept nicely through the night> I guess he just missed me.
Most of all, I was happy to see those friends again. I have to admit, I think I babbled on and on, I had so many conversations stored up from my months in seclusion! Ah, well, they didn't SEEM to mind. Our next book is going to be Straight Man. Hopefully, I can get some reading done this time!

Dear Patti, you should put your thoughts down on paper, would make great reading for other young mothers, or mothers to be. I missed the tarts... too bad. Love, family in Oregon

Patti, I feel the same way about that night. What a feast we had! I really love spending time with you guys. I always come away from our meetings wishing I was closer with all of you. Then life takes over and there never seems to be time to reach out and make it happen. I guess I'm just going to have to make a conscious effort from now on! Reading your website is a start and it's been fun. -Gina

It's nice to see that someone takes the time to have his own blog. Blogs are a new way to develop new Ideas and new products, to enrich human life. I give my little contribution as well, as Aristotle said one Man alone might not find out everything there is to know about the Universe, but one find a little and another one another little and so on, until human beings will discover everything.

Thanks for your time.
