Bruin is one of the best bowlers!! I wish I had gotten his scoreboard showing all of his STRIKES instead of just the heart and graphics!! (Ken in the background ready to bowl.)
Frank was excited about getting his Strike, but not about having his picture taken!! (Ken in the background ready to bowl.)
Ken took so long taking me picture my “strike arms” collapsed.
Rich with his big Strike of the day!!
Arlene worked all day trying to get this strike!!
Stan – Great picture with the scoreboard!!!

Sally invited her new friend Bev who is spending this season next door to Sally. Bev is so energetic and attends all of Sally’s exercise classes. Cis invited Marilyn whom she met last year. Marilyn is renting the site across the road from Cis which is the site next to ours. I invited my new friend Sally (we call her The Other Sally). I met her on the Pickleball Court and at the morning exercise classes, etc. She is such fun and so easy to get to know.
Here we are ready to enjoy a delicious luncheon at The Java Café. Around the table, Left to Right. Bev, The Other Sally, Sally, ME, Marilyn and Cis.
We all had a really great time and plan to do it again in February.

Berries were beautiful and plentiful! The owner was very helpful. He gave us buckets for picking and small scissors for snipping the berries rather than pulling them from the vine. And he showed us which berries to pick and which ones needed to ripen more (like we didn’t know).
The owner’s father was there and helped us pick. In fact, he picked so many strawberries that Ken got upset because the old gentleman kept piling berries into our bucket. Ken complained because he didn’t get to pick any himself, AND he didn’t want THAT many berries in the first place -- $11.88 in berries!! That’s $11.88 of yummy strawberry shortcakes!!! UMMMMMMM!!

There was a large group of about 16 participants.
We all had a lot of fun!! Wonder what’s going on between Dave and me and Nate?? Wish I could remember!!!
And we learned a lot. Now we’ve got it organized!!
Rich, I may not be able to execute, but now when I play I’m conscious of how I hold my paddle when at the net so I’m ready to volley!! And when I’m receiving serve, I hold my paddle with “wrinkled wrist”!! But, I’ll never get used to using a Backhand volley when it’s on the Forehand side!!!!!

Sally pours the Champaign!!
Cheers to everyone. From left to right: Ken's head, Stan, Joe, Sally, Cis and Cis' Mom
Then we went over to the party. The club provided Hot Wings and members brought other goodies to share. The party was a lot of fun with our friends and also meeting some new friends. The only problem – four hours of bad Karaoke is a little much to take!! One good thing – none of our gang sang!! HA HA
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!
On New Year’s Eve we gathered at the Pickleball courts ready to play – 12 men and 10 women!! Here is the group that played, and the winners.
