Friends

I have been in a Biblestudy with some women my age (or older) now for many years.  It evolves every year depending on who can come and who can't.  There are a few of us who have been together a LONG time. 
This year for the first time, we met a lot at our church in the Fireside room.  We have gone to the Breadbasket at times in other years, but this year we had a big group and the Fireside was available.  Sometimes we go to eachother's homes too.  We take turns hosting and leading the study.  The host decides whether she wants to clean her house and get it ready or if she would just prefer it to be at church.
 We just had our very last get-together until the fall.  Mary Ellen invited us to her home.  We had such a great time laughing and sharing.  Often everyone is talking at the same time and it is pretty noisy!!  Mary Ellen shared a couple of stories she is working on.  We LOVE her stories of her birds!

On Thursday, 3 of us Debbies from church got together to go garage saling.  We have several Debbies at church.  Debbe, Debbie, Debby, Deb, Debi....  It was popular in the '50's when we were born.
 At one garage sale, Debbie C. picked up one of these bread slicers.  We saw them at 2 more garage sales.  Guess they were the item to get rid of, but Debbie was sure excited to get one!  Two of the garage sales were adoption fund-raisers.  All 3 of us have adoption connections:  Debbie F and I have adopted kids and Debbie C. has 2 adopted grandchildren.
By noon we were ready to have some lunch and Debbie F. suggested Panda Express.  We had not eaten there before and we found it delicious!
Next time, we are wanting Debbe J. to come too (her daughter just had a baby so she could not come today).  Maybe we can go to Panera where they call out your name when your order is ready.
"Debbie, your order is ready."
"Debbie, your order is ready."
"Debby, your order is ready."
"Debbe, your order is ready."
And if we invite a few more of those Debbies from church, well, it would be hilarious, not?

There are a lot of Debbys at our church -- that's why Luke has "Allen's Debby," Gary's Debbe," "Bill's Debbie," etc....it's pretty funny because he actually came up with that on his own....

Who would think there would be so many Debbys.... in one place, so many different spellings. Looks like you had fun!
