New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the RHS Have a Game Day Event

Saturday, November 11, 2017

Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society gathered at Carmen Veenpere's home for a FUN Game Day event. They played "Farkle"  and enjoyed many laughs at the happenings as the game went on.

Carmen treated the chapter to pizza and salad and Queen Ladybird aka Carla Kerr provided ice cream and cupcakes made to celebrate two birthdays in the chapter. However, since neither person was in attendance, they hummed "Happy Unbirthday" on their kazoos and a good time was had by all.

Carmen's husband, Juri, should be an award winning gardener as their yard was much enjoyed by those in attendance. They have a beautiful home on the golf course and we were treated to some fun yells as the golfers went by.

As usual, I was behind the camera and failed to have a picture taken, but that's okay. I've been in many others and everyone knows what I look like. We never fail to have a great time at Carmen's home and always look forward to going there.

This is all I have to say for now.
