After dinner we started out gift exchange. The Canadian's number was called first and his chosen gift turned out to be a beer bread mix.
But about three turns later somebody stole it from me! So I stole somebody else's magnum of Anchor Steam 2010 holiday ale.
We got out of there around 9:00 p.m. which is much better than we feared. Our group gets really rowdy and disorganized after about the second drink, but everyone must have been on their best behavior tonight. Good grub and good prizes - can't ask for much more than that!
