After the guild!

I had my guild meeting on Wednesday and what a blast it was! After the meeting I was invited to go out for a drink. So we went to this bar close to CVPH (Plattsburgh hospital). What a hoot these girls are! Our night consisted of playing music from the jukebox, dancing and playing darts.

When I was going to college, I used to party with my sorority friends. We'd go to this bar in downtown Montreal, drink and play pinball all night. Well, until the last bus anyway. I had to go home and I didn't want to walk! Tonight it was darts! I've never played darts! After an all nighter I can honestly say that my dart game has improved! We were pretty much our own party in the dart area. The bar tender, a young college lad, asked where we were coming from. You know, four (4) older women (and we do not look our age) acting like teenagers. Holly didn't tell him that Wednesday is our quilting guild meeting. She didn't want to tarnish her/our reputation! lol It really was so pleasant to just hang loose and have a great time.

I didn't come home until 1:15 a.m. Stephen says "where were you? I was worried!". Oups! Forgot to call. I just told him that I went drinking in a bar full of young college lads and doctors. He just laughed! Men!

On the paper front, I did see my professor. It's coming along nicely! I also registered for some courses. Tomorrow I was invited to attend a quilting group. The girls I went out with also get together every Friday to quilt. It should be fun!

You needed some serious R&R and now you're going to a quilt group for more fun. WooHoo! Have lots of fun!

Sounds like a fun way to finish off a quilt meeting. Something I would enjoy - Although at my age I wouldn't want to have too many quilt meeting in one week - LOL.

Good luck with your paper - I Googled Feminist Hermeneutics - sounds interesting. Now I just need to know about the Salade d'amour :))

Gosh, I wish I'd have known you back in the late 70's and early 80's. I lived in Plattsburgh, NY from 1978-81. That's also where I started quilting. (oldest daughter was born at CVPH) and the only bar I remember going to was one where on Wednesday nights they had male strippers!

Love your Rooster quilt!
