A Wrap-up on the Party

Thanks for all of your good wishes for a happy birthday. Please accept my wishes for a Happy New Year in return and my thanks to all the Lickspittles, Zombies, and other friends who stopped by, especially those at the virtual party in the comment section.

It’s been a pleasant gathering of a diverse bunch of people. The guests included a beekeeper, a professional photographer, an architect, a clinical psychologist, an church music director, a graduate student, a stock broker, a lawyer, a high school shop teacher, a medical records clerk, a warehouse worker, a pharmacy technician, and a professional drummer among others. I know a broad range of interesting people.

The food was excellent, and I think I going to have another serving of that trifle that one of our friends made before I pack it in for the night.

  1. Don’t forget about the retired NASA rocket scientist who dabbles in law from time to time.

    Happy New Year Everyone!! It was great to finally meet a few of the Horde IRL.


  2. Wow. Missed the whole dang shindig. I was busy doing crimes and never really paid attention to the time, what with all the flashing lights and random gunfire.

    Anyway, happy birthday. I’ll root around in one of my crime satchels in the morning and pick you out a nice watch or something,

  3. Well, the resident dentist was out, so please accept my sincerest wishes for a Happy Birthday and a Happy New Year.

  4. Sounds like a good time! I spent yesterday (and will be spending today) in the company of friends as well.

    Let’s hope 2016 is filled with blessings for our friends, and confusion for our foes!

  5. Glad you had a good birthday party. And I hope all the other Lickspittles had a pleasant and safe New year’s Eve. My wife and I had a nice quiet dinner at the local tapas bar, washed down with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot, and then came home for a closing glass of a good port.

    Tonight we shall close out the holidays with a traditional dish at chez Jeff: baked bones. Take the bones with the attached meat from a standing rib roast cooked rare, coat with bread crumbs and Dijon mustard, and bake in a hot oven until the crust is nice and crisp. Havent decided on the wine yet; maybe a Barolo.

    • Everything but the Barolo sounds good. I don’t know why, I just have never cared for ’em.

      I have a lovely bottle of Justin Isoceles; we’re going to smoke a duck, mess around with side dishes, and have that.

      Happy New Year!

          • I like classical baroque so , its hell…..
            Once in Alabama I saw a sign “Home of the International Shakespeare Festival” next to the turnoff for the State Deaf School.

          • Did you not bring a CD of the Academy of Ancient Music doing the Brandenburg Concerti or the Orchestral Suites? If so, you have only yourself to blame.

            Oh and my wife said I screwed up the recipe for baked bones. The bones need to be soaked for a while in red wine vinegar and dusted with salt and pepper before applying the breadcrumbs and mustard and butter. I forgot the butter. My wife is muttering something about men.

          • Die Jeff just die………………

            As I pass a Whataburger where the burger is covered in number 2 mustard recycled from those 1950 Air raid shelter cardboard drums in dark stanky basement…….

        • If I could, I’d send you a care package. I’ve got some home-style mac-and-cheese, crockpot-cooked, and it’s wonderful if you chop some summer sausage into it before reheating.
