60+ Ladies met together on a cold snowy Friday Night for
A GROUP OF VAN GOGH'S
WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED?
PROBABLY NOT...BUT WE HAD SO MUCH FUN TOGETHER!
WOMEN NEED OTHER WOMEN
MEET AND EAT...THAT'S WHAT WE SOUTHERN BAPTIST'S DO WELL
and now, the Rest of the Story...
Believe it or not and especially after seeing the above pictures, I'm not much of a social butterfly since I retired. I choose my activities with care and don't burden my schedule with a lot of unnecessary activities. I'm going to admit something here. People have disappointed me in the past.

But Mainly it's just ME and #1 Husband
