I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
Supper is ordered from a mystery menu. Usually there is a theme and descriptions are made up for each individual item on the menu. This year's theme was "The 60's." Food, drink and utensils are described in vague, camouflaged terms and served in several courses. You make your choices from bewildering descriptions of food, so you may find you have ordered a dessert, a napkin, a salad and French fries, and so on for each course.
This year we had supper entertainment from a group of dads who played 60's music in keeping with the theme. The kids named them The 360's.

After supper, there are always some quirky group games to play as mixers. This year they had 6 teams that competed in elimination rounds passing a hula hoop down the line and back while holding hands. The winning team of the kids "played" against the adults at the end of the competition.
The evening ends with a couple of hours of dancing. (L. and Charles)
