Writing Group, Part 3: Slicers Extraordinare

As the BONS gathered in the living room after a fine potluck meal of taco salad, fruit cup, and raspberry creme pie, we were pleasantly surprised by Mary Helen awarding us all trophies for the 21 days of slicing we have accomplished.  Thank you, Mary Helen.

The awards were golden cups emblazoned with the words "Slicer Extraordinaire."  No words could express the warmth and laughter we all shared as we accepted these trophies.   The trophies were so unexpected as is all things are at our monthly meetings.  This was the first time ever, however, that we actually wrote separately/together on our laptops, describing the events on this Night of Slices.

Ruth M.'s eleven-year-old son Sam honored us by photographing our group relishing our prizes.  More laughter!  Thank you, Sam.

We felt that all was worth the hours we spent on creating our slices for the SOLS Challenge of 2012.  On to Day 22!!

  1. I hope that pic is somewhere in my future as I wind my way through the slices! Your slices are like the slices of pie, making a whole as they join each other!

  8. Hi Tam! Love that you were here (in person!) tonight!
    Now, get started on chapter 2 of that story--I have a feeling that you reading us a chapter each month is going to become a tradition. Will you do it if we promise you more trophies?
