Martha W., Martha J., and Betty H. enjoying the wonderful goodies at Lucy & Ethel's Country Tea (Bobbie Romohr & Susan Young), Wilmington, Ohio.
And here are the wonderful goodies, much depleted! We loved every bite.
Something has caught the attention of Blanche, Eileen, Mae and Pat. I wonder what it was?
Mae, Lois and Martha W. really seem to be enjoying the ambience of Miss Annabelle's.

Here is Glenda with Santa Claus and I'll bet he was loving every minute!

23 of us traveled to Springfield to have a delicious lunch at Teaberries, a delightful gift shoppe and tea room. What a wonderful time we had discovering all their many nooks and crannies. Thank you Glenda for finding this jewel for us. Here we are on the grand staircase in the gift shop before heading back to Mason.
Red Hatters are always smiling and Mariann is no exception. Here she is mugging for the camera at Teaberries, Springfield, Ohio
Imagine! 103 years old! That's our Gordon Lumley dressed as a Village Red Hattie celebrating his birthday in the Chapel of Mason Christian Village. The Village Red Hatties bedecked him in royal robes, presented him with a red rose, and some of us even managed the Electric Slide line dance to celebrate the occasion. Happy Birthday Gordon, we will do it again in 2005 for your 104th.

Eulaine, Verna, Martha W., Dorothy, Shirley,
Betty C., Mariann, and our instructor Ed. We are concentrating on getting our steps right as we dance the Electric Slide for Gordon.
When do we eat? Waiting patiently for our food order to be taken at Claddagh's at Newport on the Levee.
Ginny caught unawares.

Lining up for yet another picture. We wanted to have the purple people bridge in the background but we just couldn't catch a ray of sunshine.

Love those glasses Blanche!

These two pictures can't begin to show the beauty of the Gregory Creek Inn Bed and Breakfast. Janet & Bob Niederman were wonderful hosts. They unselfishly shared their magnificent home with us. Janet is a terrific cook and we all delighted in the food that was served at our breakfast. They shared the history of their farm, told us about their Christmas display, provided entertainment by Lynn (a member of the Roses and Rubies Chapter) who shared her poetry, and culminated it all with a tour of their bed and breakfast. They sent us off happy, smiling, and full of food. It was a delightful way to spend a morning.
Thank you Janet and Bob for entertaining 24 happy Village Red Hatties!

Barb's grandson, Jay Engelbrink, an employee of Montgomery Boathouse, was on hand to wish his grandmother a Happy Birthday when we arrived.

Queen Shirley and Glenda had a great time playing the horses at River Downs with lots of other red hatters. Do you think the smiles mean we were big winners? I don't think so!

Mim, Glenda, Ginny and Martha relaxing in the lounge aboard the beautiful yacht Destiny.
Mim, Ginny, Glenda and Martha just couldn't resist tootin' their kazoos to the applause of the other red hatters. What a hoot we had on the Destiny Yacht. Is that a feather (or two?) on the floor?
Wow! What a yacht! Shirley, Martha, Mim and Glenda chomping at the bit to get aboard.
Just couldn't resist including this picture. Glenda took this awesome picture of the Cincinnati Reds Riverfront Stadium just after dark.
Footnote: Unhappily, before we could celebrate Gordon's birthday again, he passed away on December 7, 2004, just shy of his 104th birthday. He will be missed.
A plate of food just too beautiful to eat, but eat it we did!

Just look at the size of those undies! Ginny, Blanche, Eileen & Shirley attended The Big Purple Undies outing at Waterford Retirement Center. The entertainers from Australia were hilarious. There was some talk they will be at the RHS Las Vegas Convention.
