A Church Tea

Hi Everyone from Ten Gables cottage,
Last evening was our "Seasoned Seniors" group meeting and we had a "Tea". Everyone brought a dish to share and you can see by our table, we had some delicious tea foods.

Here are some of the members, enjoying themselves. We served strawberry tea, which was a huge hit and we ended up making it in huge coffee pots and about 70-80 cups were consumed! Everyone loves strawberry tea, even those who are not really tea drinkers.

Entertainment was provided by the Peace Lutheran Church Bereavement Band! Yep, you read it right! They call themselves the Bereavement Band---actually they are ladies who are members of the church bereavement committee. They dress up for the part, too, and Bluegrass music is their specialty.

Here, one lady is playing the banjo and the other one, the harmonica.

Actually, they are all pantomiming, both playing and singing, and they are fantastic! They are so good that you actually think they are really playing, and they get lots of bookings. Between songs they told "senior jokes"---very funny!

Their old hound dog keeps them company "stuffed" and on the left, you can see a opossom
(stuffed) hanging from a music stand.

It was a fun evening, and these gals are really creative!

  1. Looks like fun, the band reminds me of the Saggy Bottom Boys.
