We Wish You A Merry Christmas!!!

It was the night of the Annual North Slope Christmas Caroling Extravaganza! So we bravely marched into the cold with 60 friends, neighbors and strangers, like a North End Gang, armed with Christmas lyrics and singing in a variety of keys all at the same time. Look Out!!!

Our Fearless Leader, Mary Boone. She did a great job organizing us, running 5 houses ahead to ring doorbells and plead with the residents not to call the police on us. A complete success, their were no arrests.

Hello Gordons. This is what happens when you don't join the neighborhood activities. We show up at your door anyway. We are neighbors that are hard to avoid.

Hello Tim & Petula. Petula you may be surprised to know that you were not the only dog that we sang to this evening. But you were the first. Where's Pat??? Oh, she must have heard us coming.

Hello Smith Family. Beth & Barry have their Daughter, Son in Law & Grandbaby visiting. Where's the Grandbaby??? She must have heard us coming too.

And our final stop, before we ran for the cookies and hot chocolate, was the home of Eric Anderson, Tacoma City Manager. Us North Slopers never let an opportunity pass to suck up to the local politicians.
