Game Night, Sept. 15

14 Sep

Dear friends,

Yes, we are hosting FridayNightGameNight, Sept. 15, starting at 7 pm.  I’m going to do the traditional thing and say, “There will be cake!”  But don’t quote me, since I actually don’t know if the cake will be a lie or not.  I’m  99.9999% certain that there will be, if not cake, some sort of delicious dessert.

We’ll see you soon!

We Will Miss You, Fu, Sept. 1 Game Night

31 Aug

Dear friends,

We hope everyone survived the storm with minimal to no damage.  Since we thankfully have remained high and dry through the storm, we will be hosting game night tomorrow, September 1.  Our courtyard tree, however, did not fare so well.  Until we can fix it permanently, it is now leaning over.  So watch your head and look out for low branches as you come into the house!  Jim says there will be pizza (Domino’s is open!), cake, and pie.

On a sadder note, we said goodbye to our dear canine companion Fu today.  Fu had the most beautiful gaze.  I will miss looking into those amazing eyes, which were all at once innocent and wise, soulful and sweet, cute and unabashedly loving.

Dearest Fu,

We were so very lucky to have you as our loving friend and guardian.  You looked after everyone in the family.  On our walks together, you made sure that the family was always intact and never separated.  You made regular stops during walks to look around and check that everyone was still present and within the line of sight, and not lost in the wilderness of the park or neighborhood.  (There’s Shou running up ahead as usual [check], and the slowpoke hoomans lagging behind again [check] – it’s now okay to carry on ‘til the next checkpoint 15 feet ahead).  You’re a good boy, Fu.  You’re our good boy.

Dearest Fu, the cats understood that you were the family’s sweet and gentle caretaker.  When they needed to feel secure, they would snuggle up against you and sleep curled up in the safe, warm harbor of your neck.  You were our cuddly, snuggly, huggly dog.  You have always sought after that physical connection between yourself and whoever is the current lucky recipient of your warm touch.  You’re smart:  you knew that hardwired connections are so much better and more dependable than wireless.  Fu the Glue, we should have called you, since in our home you were the heart whose gravitational pull all of us cats, dogs, and humans could not resist.

Dearest friend and loving companion, we know it has been hard for you of late.  Your aging body and deteriorating health and strength have made it impossible for you to do the things that bring you the greatest joy.  We know your determined spirit was as strong and vibrant as ever.  And we know that even as you were often too weak or exhausted to leave your bed, that in your mind you were still watching after us and our safety on long walks.  That you were still chasing birds in unending loops at the dog park.  That you were still making heroic leaps over puddles and protecting us from those invading squirrels and skateboarders.  That you were still the perfectly charming dining companion on our visits to the Burger Joint.

Dearest Fu, we know it was finally time for you to move on to a place where your ailing body would no longer hold you back.  Our hearts ache and overflow with love and joy for you.  Dearest, constant companion, as the heart of our household, you and your love have been and will always be steadfastly and unfalteringly strong and undiminished, even as you now travel where we cannot follow.  We have been so very lucky to have known your immense love.  We hope to have taken care of you even half as well, half as capably, and half as lovingly as you have taken care of us all.

Rest in peace, dearest Fu.  You are our guardian angel, best friend, constant companion, cuddle buddy, and good boy.  We will miss you.  We love you.

Your loving family,

Truong, Jim, Lulu, Han

FRI AUG 25 GAME NIGHT WITH HARVEY???

24 Aug

Yes board game playing friends we are still planning on hosting game night this week, hurricane and all. Maybe we will play “Category 5″  and hope that we do not actually get one.
So yes we are having game night, mostly because I have all this food I made for the game night feast and we need someone ( Stefan )  to help eat it. BUT, be sure that you check the weather updates before you make your way here for game night. Then you can decide if you are coming or not.  We do not want anyone coming to game night and then run into serious problems trying to get home afterwards. 

ALSO, the Saturday board game thing we were going to have at Steve’s house has been canceled for now.

.
If you can make it we look forward to seeing you here for FRIDAY NIGHT GAME NIGHT.

Winter Is Coming Game Night, Friday 11

10 Aug

Dear friends,

Winter-Is-Coming

If any of you are not familiar with Game of Thrones lore, I at first thought to apologize for today’s Game of Thrones references.  But then I thought again, and I say to you, get with it already!  Winter Is Coming and you must be prepared!

A red-bearded Wildling (they call him “Steve”) heads south this Friday to join us for Game Night.  He has made his way from Calgary past The Wall to the Woodlands.  (All you Trump groupies will be glad to know that the Mexican border isn’t the only location that has a wall).  And now this Friday, he will make his way south from the Woodlands to FridayNightGameNight.

While normally, this kind of news would be cause for concern, we believe worrying achieves nothing other than causing worry lines on our beautiful faces.   Also, we are not Trump supporters, and therefore we are also not afraid of peoples from foreign lands.  That is why it would be much more prudent to celebrate the Wildling’s arrival.  To mark this momentous occasion, I have made a celebratory jello:

Strawberry-kiwi jello on top of fresh strawberry mousse

So yes, while Winter Is Coming, why worry when we have jello (and cake!), and board games, and friends, this FridayNightGameNight, starting at 7 pm.  We’ll see you then!

Truong

p.s.  It occurred to me that I have not posted photos of some jellos from game nights past, so here they are!:

FRI JULY 21 GAME NIGHT TONIGHT, YES THERE IS

21 Jul

In the immortal words of Marie Antoinette ” Let them eat JELLO” , and we will Let them ( you ) eat Jello. A Jello every bit as amazing, elegant  and delicious as Marie herself could have ever imagine.  Yes board game playing friends, it seems that Truong has out done himself with this weeks masterpiece.  So join us tonight for the playing of board games, (( possibly our very own copy of Terraforming Mars )  (Just imagine it 3 separate games of Terraforming Mars being played simultaneously  here some night )). The sharing of the board game feast. The eating of Cake. And of course, THERE WILL BE JELLO
.
See you here tonight
