Topper Ladies: Out &About... Our group dined at Lincoln's Blue Dog Tuesday, November 17, which proved to be a very cold and windy day. Blue Dog's luncheon menu is always tasty, and reasonably priced. They usually feature several daily specials. I tried the excellent chicken salad, with cranberries, on a croissant and a side cranberry salad. Delicious. A meat loaf dinner was another sl ecial and several of the ladies enjoyed that. All in all, the variety of dishes ordered made one's mouth water! Sev- eral enjoyed the enticing desserts they offer. After dining, we sat and visited for a while over coffee. Walt staff is efficient and courteous. Phyllis Edwards and Ruth Barry served as co-host- esses. Each individual attending received a small chocolate turkey, which, I'm sure, contained no calories! Ha. The centerpiece for the table was a lovely, large arrange- ment of a pilgrim couple standing over a bountiful supply of harvest gatherings. Patsy Garlits was the lucky lady who took it home. Our December meeting will be lpm Tuesday, December 15 at Clinton's La Tea Da Tearoom. Please bring a $10 gift for the gift exchange. Co-hostesses are Phyllis Hawk and Madonna Boyle. Remem- ber to call either one of them to confirm your reservation. Feel free to join us for a couple hours of good conversation over delectable meals. Just remember to call first to confirm your reservation for that date. Happy holidays to one and all!
