All the participants are members of Family Wanderers, a volksport club, excepting Hans. The conversation was all around Robin Hood’s Barn, or maybe it was Geppetto’s Barn. Nancy and Ross had just returned from an elderhostel in Hawaii and regaled us with stories and photos. Volcanos and exotic flowers as well as other scenery. Much of the talk was about food and restaurants in various cities. Hans suggested that he always looks before traveling to see if the city he is going to visit has a school of culinary arts. He says that he has had some very good meals there. Travel, architecture, libraries, Japanese and Chinese gardens were just some of the topics of discussion. What a fun evening. We should celebrate birthdays more often, say once a month. Especially with meals like this. Happy birthday, Ross.
