Fat Thursday and Ribbon Cutting for the South Side..

Tad and Teresa do one major project a year on their house just like we do. This year they decided it was time to replace their rickety old wood patio with a new cement one. They also got a new French door and screen installed. They invited a few friends over for a ribbon cutting and to see the finished project. The Young's, old and young, who were the contractors, us, Bonnie and June, a friend Teresa quilts with were glad to be invited. All of us are from the Kekaha Ward but T & T and June. T & T have been coming to church and all activities for this last 2 months though. We are so happy. Anyway, on to the story.

In Poland today is Fat Thursday, a day of celebration. You also eat all fat things. Hmmm. Anyway, we toasted the door and patio for good luck. If you don't Teresa says the cement will crumble and the door fall off. The champagne and sparkling cider flowed freely. Tad cut the ribbon. We all cheered and said oooo and ahhh. Then we had a feast of all sorts of Polish food. It was so good.

Teresa told us the history of Fat Thursday and explained the food. She told us how she and Tad decided to come here and how they found their little house (they spend 5mos. in Hawaii and 7mos. in Canada). It was a very different mix of people, young and old, from all over the country. What a great evening we all had. Everyone shifted back and forth between the house and outside and talked story and visited with everyone. It was a great time and nobody wanted to go home. You know how it is when things just seem so good? We are so happy to be included in this group of friends.
