(Jan) We host a Boomer Happy Hour each winter when we’re here in the Foothills. This years event coincided with the Foothills Annual Parade of Lights. The Invite was posted on the Yahoo Group’s BBB – Boomer Bulletin Board and 27 fun, energetic friends arrived at our lot. As usual, everyone brought chairs, drinks & food to share plus many dressed in holiday hats or clothes ready to celebrate & for viewing the evening’s parade. It was a good mix of familiar faces, best buds, four people we’d only met once & three that were brand new friends. We were very happy that several people that hadn’t seen each other for many years & enjoyed visiting again. Here’s this year’s group; Andy Overby, Gene Thaden, Ron & Sharon Mead, Jenny Sheppard, Judy & Dean Sheeley, Chris Christiansen, Jan & Chuck, Karen & Mickey Bennett, Dee & Bruce Richmond, Trish Masters, Kay Seliskar, Bea & Ken Marler, Tom Seliskar, Margie & Tom Maloney, Dan Sheppard, Kathy Thaden, Bill Pollock, Ernie Thomson, Gisela Pollock & Patsy Cook. As evening was setting in, we all rounded up our chairs and walked or drove over to 54th Street and El Camino Del Diablo to view the parade. It was a wonderful eclectic mix of decorated golf carts, pick-ups, sand rails, quads & a few floats. There were Santa’s & reindeer, the Grinch, snow men & angels, lots of lights, live & recorded music and lots of shouts of Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! Our group was properly festive with decorated chairs, Santa Hats, light up necklaces & hand held lights. Many in the group strolled up the fantastically decorated 55th ‘Christmas’ Street following the parade. We sure had a fun time! Pictured above right are; Sharon & Ron Mead, Dean Sheeley, Dee Reed Richmond, Chuck & Jan and Judy Sheeley. Above left is our little Christmas tree that we have hanging in the front window of our Motor Home.
