Saturday night was the fourth Vistage Group 1107 party - hosted by Susan and I. A chilly September evening caused us to finish the festivities inside. A.S. had special 10 year awards for five of us and I concluded the evening with the Buckets and Boots contest (Guys wore Buckles, Gals wore boots).
Even though the house renovation project was not complete, Susan and I were able to make the house presentable. We were able to "move" in the new bedroom just after we returned from Montana (Sept. 2). Hosting a party is actually great incentive to clean things up around the house (and outside also).
I remember as a teenager ( a lazy teenager) always snipping back at Mom: "Why do we need to do all this cleaning when it was only FAMILY coming to visit?" After all, family knows how neat or messy we lived like. Now I realize the reason - out of respect and as incentive to get things accomplished.
"Neatness is next to Godliness" .... also!
