On Thanksgiving we gathered with neighbors for a great pot-luck meal. Usually these get-togethers are held on someone's patio but the day was cold(by Arizona standards) so we crowded into one of the homes.
I won't try to name everyone present but the group included people who live in our resort and some who left us for larger homes nearby but are still friends.
Everyone brings their own cutlery and beverage and a dish to share. There was plenty of food to go around and lots of smiles laughter and sharing.
We will be having another gathering on Christmas. Many of our neighbors go home for these holidays but those of us who stay are never lonely.
