Yes, yours truly has had one week of special events and as they say in New England, with a wide eyed smile, we have been”Hob Nobbing with the Hoi Polloi”!! As you may recall, last year we had a great visit with golf ledgend Billy Casper, but this week were indeed a red letter days as the invites came streaming in. On Monday, I was invited to a special “Library Event” at the Bloomfield Prosser Library- ( I was a past Library Director), the program was delicious- a how to pair wine with chocolate-YUM! On Wednesday, we were off to the Democratic Convention for the 1st Congressional District held in East Hartford, CT. My old freind, (Yep I have known him for years) US Representative, John B. Larson is running for office again – had a great time at the convention, met folks from throughout the State, had great food and wow the drinks were flowing!!!!
