enter 2009, well almost....

...before the trio of Glenda, Anne and Dean left to try to make it to the Resolution Run, they had to bungee cord the back end of the car together, clean up the debris that was scattered along the road and park the car in my driveway...off they went. The police officer was now tending to the owner of the car that was hit while innocently parked in their own driveway...

I did the last minute twirl around the house to make sure that nothing that was needed for the evenings festivities was left behind. When I arrived at our destination the merry runners were piling into cars and heading off for downtown Ottawa, I unpacked Anne and Dean's stuff along with the help from Glenda. We both thought that was a very legitimate way of getting out the run that was -28C, with the windchill.

Brenda and her beau Roger had been busy with the table arrangements and place settings...





Brenda, or should I say "assistant deputy detective" ...





Jen,
"Private
Investigator"
Madison Weston (father of Sammy), ya go figure!!







Karen, our beautiful mother of two huge hockey son's rocking it out as a guy ski bum "Buzzy"!!






















Anne "Sammy and yours truly, Tiffany" (the Flight Attendant)





















The entire cast, except for the photographer! There are many more photo's (of course), but blogger can only manage so many at a time, well me too!


We had a RIOT!!

If you've got a group of great friends like I have with the Wooo Hooo's and their significant others, definitely host a Murder Mystery Dinner, you will laugh yourself silly!Of course there was way too much food and beverages, adult and soft drinks too, after all, we are our own liquor control boards! LOL....

The rest of the evening went really quickly and just before we realised it, it was time to ring in the New Year! Party hats, horns, noise makers, we had it all.

... to be continued!

That is awesome! I guess it was Buzzy, in the Library, with a ski pole.

Groover said...

What a nice night. I'm glad you started the new year off well. It's funny to think that while all this happened I was already well into New Year's Day, laying on the beach sun baking and having lunch with Alberto and our friends ... :-) It's weird!
