Sixteen of us met for lunch at an obviously popular place this month, Barelas Cafe.  Seated in a T-formation In a separate room encouraged easy conversation for Sandy Stewart Smallwood, Steve Brooks, Mike and Ruth Wartell, Susie Strong Neuschwanger, George and Tooey Boyden, Marcy McVay Cates, Don Rood, Gloria Ruiz Santana and her daughter, Susan Thompson, Sandy Bryan, John Criswell and Connie Welty . Chicharorrones (fried pork rind) as an appetizer and in burritos was a welcomed and unique feature on the menu for some.  

As a group, we have decided to change lunch dates to the 2nd Monday of each month.  In so doing, we can see Betty and Susan’s smiling faces again.  Betty could and would drive the 325 miles on any other Monday, so plan now, girl!  Neal, we hope to see you as well.  (His new vehicle, housed safely in his garage, was damaged when a car suddenly backed in through the closed door! Whaaa...?! Now that’s a story we want to hear!)

Others we missed were MaryAnn, Helen, Sue, and Walter.  Once fall arrives, more of us may choose to lunch!  

On another note, Steve Brooks, who told us about an impending surgery,  is sporting a large bandage on his face, but says he is doing well.  Yay!

Band update: Ms. G has increased the size of the band to 90 along with a small color guard. Frosty and I were the only two there but we offered donuts to supporters who came from the neighborhood. Next year we hope to be joined by members of the class of '52. The marchathon raised $4000!

“Are you ready?” the game show hosts shout. So, are you? Next week we will have our LUNCH in a different quarter of town...the far northeast.  We have reserved space at Farina Alto Pizzeria and Wine Bar, 10721 Montgomery Blvd. NE at 1:00, Monday, Sept. 9.  It is just west of Juan Tabo on the north side of the street.  Their motto is “where fresh food finds good company”, so appropriate for us in reverse!  They serve “modern and classic Italian food, beer and wine in a warm and refined atmosphere.”  The menu sports artisan pizzas, lovely salads, and heavier entrees for those with a hearty midday appetite.  Please RSVP here or to me so I can give them a count next Monday morning.  Fino ad allora! (Until then!)

Unfortunately, I have a lunch meeting with my Banker. I scheduled it so it would not conflict with the HHS luincheon on the 3rd Monday.

Sorry, won't see you until October.  Signed up for the AARP Safe Driver course....

John Criswell

I'll be there as well as Connie Pecha Welty.

Taking the AARP driver safety course on line you get to log in and take at your own convience. It's comprehensive and quite good. Gets you 3 years of insurance rate "discounts".

Luncheon News:  Robyn and I often would often exclaim at the camaraderie we experience with people in our class...whom we didn’t know!!  Jim Henson described it well—“There’s not a word yet for old friends who’ve just met.”  These old friends mixed it up at Farina Alto and lingered after the meal:  Susie Strong Neuschwanger, Sandy Bryan, Steve Brooks, George Boyden, Rhonda Beauchamp Blech and husband Frosty, Susan Thompson, Bonnie Kruger Kelly, Mike and Ruth Wartell, Walt Huebner, Marcy McVay Cates, Neal Kloepfer, John Criswell, Connie Welty and our long distance travelers Betty Myers Schaefer and sister Susan Puckett, as well as Merl and Kati Schafer.   I hope we see more new faces next month including those who are recovering from surgery, appointments, and vacations!  Speaking of next month, here is your notice: Oct.14 (2nd Monday), 1:00 at Canteen Brewhouse at 2381 Aztec Rd NE, 87107.  It is north of Candelaria and west of Vassar.  I am hoping the weather will be NM gorgeous, so we can eat outside because November may not prove to be as hospitable.  Bring a friend with you if you like...we don’t check for HHS ID!  RSVP here or to me by that Monday.
