  • I'm always willing.

    BTW, on your first get together blog, you said something I've always enforced in my house. "My house, my rules". Works like a charm. Everybody knows the consequences for breaking it.

    I've never had any sort of a formal dinner, my door is always open and plenty of food is made. If I run low, I improvise. NOBODY leaves my home hungry!

  • Maybe I should have stated that the person last on your list should be your first person to invite.

    I like this blog. And I love get togethers!

    Roy, you do get Bonnie and I confused.... we must be twins! It was me who said "My house, my rules" ....

    One of the rules in my house, is to come to enjoy the companionship and the being together with people you love, or would like to learn to know better.

    I tell all my friends and family,..."The door is open if I'm home, Come in, make yourself at home" I don't wait on people, so dig in and relax in my home. "You better be coming to see me, and not a spotless house" My house is clean, but it's not spotless. I think you'll enjoy, but I know I will enjoy meeting you all, I hope it likewise.

    I like the thought of inviting the last person on your list first.... that's priceless.

    And of course, Jesus always has a spot in my home/family. The rest will be fine
