High Rolls, NM Red Hat Event

May 24, 2014

Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society gathered at the home of hostess, Alice Johnston, for a potluck luncheon and game playing.

It was such a lovely day in the mountains that we sat outside enjoying the view and the sunshine. We could see houses far above us that appeared to be touching the sky in the middle of  the beautiful Lincoln National Forest.

We enjoyed a wonderful luncheon consisting of various dishes brought by members including potato salad, macaroni salad, fresh fruit and vegetables, eclairs, southwestern chicken and white bean soup, deviled eggs, etc.

After lunch, we had a rousing game of Yatzee and Queen Ladybird (Carla) won, but barely.  Several of the girls brought cups of coffee with them to the game table. Once, when it was VQ Penny's turn, she picked up the dice to put them in the cup to shake them, lost her place, and dropped them into her coffee cup. She turned nine shades of red while we all laughed hysterically.  Margie, who had the next turn, quickly sat her coffee cup on a small table behind her before taking the dice afraid she would make the same funny!

We had a brief planning session for future events and came up with some grand ideas. For starters, next month, we are going to the local zoo and plan to ride the train around the area as well.  Yes, we know it's for kiddos, but we just want to have fun!

Thanks to Lu for taking the picture of Alice and Queen Ladybird. 

This is all I have to say for now.
