HAPPY 2016!

What better way to ring in the new year than with a group of good friends?  At our invitation, at high noon on New Year's Day, fifteen of us converged on B Bar and Grill in the East Village for brunch. Teresa Taylor took this shot of the Rogue's Gallery on Jean's cell phone. (Missing in action: Nancy Koenigsberg, who had to leave early to catch a train.) Front row: Charlotte Thorp, Jean, Valerie, Judy Berkowitz, Elke Kuhn and Richard Cramer. Back row: Robin Schwalb, Xtine, Denton Taylor, Sue Kreitzman, Antonia H, Carol Markel and Diana Gabriel.

Elke sent us a Waterlogue app version of our opening photograph -   the perfect image to end this post with.  It's wonderfully convincing, isn't it?  We'll be posting more fun and frolic, stuff and nonsense in the days, weeks and months to come.  In the meantime, we wish you all a wonderfully happy and healthy 2016!
