Christmas get-together

Since we had a nice turnout for our Thanksgiving Get-together at the Grotto Pizza, we decided to do it again over Christmas. Anyone in town for the holidays is invited to join everyone that shows up.

We値l meet at Grotto Pizza at the Wyoming Valley Mall around 6:30 or 7:00 PM., on Saturday, December 29th. After our first try at this, I値l tell the hostess to expect more of us, so just ask the hostess for the Bishop O坦eilly crowd. She was nice about it over Thanksgiving. We値l just keep adding tables if we have to. (I知 curious to see how many people switch their tables to get away from us this time! I saw one table of 4 relocate to the other side of the room!)

Grotto closes at 11:00, but if we can find some bar with music for Robin Lonsdale and Mark Dushok to dance to, I知 sure we can move on to there to be entertained! Mark has Robin polishing up her moves!!!

If any of you may be interested in attending, please contact me so I have some idea for arrangements with the Grotto management. Thank you.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

1977 J.C. Penney Catalog

Someone sent me an email a few weeks ago that was extracted from a blog posting about a 1977 J.C. Penney catalog the author found in his grandfather's attic. It was pretty funny and you can read it here.

Since we graduated that year, and the styles were, well, a little embarrassing to say the least, I thought you'd get a laugh out of this photo. My only question is how they got the guys to look so serious when they were wearing these mint green duds.
