Valentine 2009

Today was Valentine’s Day. At 7:00 AM I was at the clubhouse helping setting up for breakfast.
The legend has it that the men, at Camino Hills, bragged that they could cook a better breakfast than the women. To prove it they cooked a breakfast on a Saturday. It was a large success.
Since then the men are doing breakfast once a month. When we are in town, I am one of the helpers.
This morning the tables were set up already with red table cloths and red decorations. It looked really pretty.
Kathy had started last night to decorate.

At 8:00 AM, when the hungry troops arrived, the women were handed a little heart shaped box of chocolate, and everybody received a glass of champagne, or champagne mixed with orange juice.

Breakfast consists of a choice of eggs, sausages, bacon, potatoes, toast, French toast and pancakes, and orange and tomato juice, and coffee, and a bowl of fresh fruit.

Nobody leaves the clubhouse hungry.

Today, one of the husbands had hired a barber shop quartet to come to breakfast and serenade his wife.
