Perhaps it should stay alcohol-free. I'd be concerned about a brawl erupting over variable annuities, to or to not pay off the mortgage, which Vanguard accounts are best, new vs. junkyard cars, and what percentage of income it is okay to spend instead of saving.

No, that's just a sign that the flow of alcohol should be increased. Then the affair can gently taper off into a group hug while singing Auld Lang Syne.

Ha: alcohol is definitely an enhancement both to attitudes and appearances! And Spanish language skills, or so I've heard!

Nords: that shirt may be yours-it did come from the second-hand store up on Rivers Ave near the base area!
But I really hope the pleated (yes,pleated) leather pants DH is wearing were not yours!

Nords knows where I/DW will be staying early next year (based upon private discussions). However, since I did not specify a date, you don't know when I will be there. However, if you show up, I'll throw a party.

Catch me if you can ...

I'd have to be rip-roaring drunk or dead to be found in them there duds.

As for alcohol, it does inhibit inhibitions.

Did anyone else think that the first male model looks like "Spock, Jr."?

The yellow outfit is odd clothing for men, to be sure.

I found this picture of one of our meetups. It was more fun than it looks.

Heck, we'd have those brawls if we were stone-cold sober. Of course I'm presuming that the rest of you are posting sober.

Um, that depends... were they hemmed for platform soles?

Define "decently dressed". I am sure members of this forum have varied interpretation of this.
