We never know for certain who will attend our meetings, but this time we did know who would not be able to make it.  Due to the weather, we received two cancellations from our far away friends.  Thinking that we might have a short meeting with few members, we were in for a great surprise.

We traveled on the Appalachian Trail for over seven hundred and seventy miles.  We felt abandoned during a hike up Crane Mountain while bushwhacking and ending up in a cave.  Luckily this was a fiction piece.  We traveled back in time to Brooklyn when two twelve year olds’ adventures almost created a potentially dangerous situation.  Laughter exploded when hearing another Odd Tale; this one about a drone flashing pictures of unaware neighbors in the dark of night.  Our two Trapped pieces changed the mood.  One tale of an entrapment in a bathroom in a Rome hotel created a heightened sense of panic.  The next entrapment made us all shiver hearing about the retelling of a story heard during a college get together many years ago.  This story took place in Japan and the combination of a very tiny kitchen with a closed door and a trapped rat took us into a situation which none of us wished to ever experience.

Well, you may have an idea of what you missed if you were not in attendance.


NEXT MEETING:  MARCH 9th        1:30 PM in the library

ASSIGNMENT:  Choose one of these two or any other idea you may have:   Essential / Texture

Hope we will get to see many of you at our March meeting
