COFFEE N' CAKE

     I have listed some of my Christmas activities. I lead a bird watching group each Saturday. I planned a wind up Cake and coffee session. 

     I had to get permission to use the Red Deer River Naturalist's office for this event. So went I went down to set things up I was completely surprised to find that the tables had clothes and there were decorations. Our treasurer who uses the room most had set it up for me without telling me.





    So you an tell we had a good time.

  6. Hi Red, The cake and coffee session looks great. I think I spotted one of those Audubon Singing Bird Clocks on the wall at the end of the room there. Perfect for the Naturalist’s office! Enjoyed the photos. Nice looking group of birders.

    1. Yes , you did spot a bird clock. this one doesn't sing. These people are enthusiastic and have learned much...not from me but from each other and a biologist who comes with us.

  15. I believe I spotted The Micro Manager in the first picture. I guess she was there to prevent your usual womanising with lady ornithologists.

    1. The micro manager was there but her toughest job was to look after the cake and she did an excellent job.

  16. I'm glad someone took care of the setup! I was afraid you were going to say the entire space had been committed to someone else and you had to hold your gathering elsewhere...

    1. I made sure I reserved the space. I had to get prior approval from the board.
