Kudos & Kindness

We would like to thank everyone who showed so much concern for us in our search for our lost dog, Jasper. We were out of our heads with worry, but underneath that it was heartwarming to know that so many people cared and understood about our feelings for her.

To all of you who called with various “Jasper sightings” (and I’ll never complain about cell phones again) thank you for taking the time to do so, and for giving us a direction to follow.

A special thanks goes to Mick and Laura – you guys are amazing. And thanks to Suzanne, Miki, Debra, and the kids, Linda and Steve, and Heidi and the other rangers at the Visitors Center for your help, positive thoughts, and prayers.

Happily, two days after she became separated from us and having been seen at Fallen Leaf Lake, Camp Richardson, Kiva Beach, and the Tahoe Keys, we were reunited a scant quarter mile from where we lost her.

She is now in the process of recuperating from her minor injuries, but she may be hugged and petted to death. Thank you all so much.

Gatsby mystery was a success

I appreciate the opportunity to thank in print the fine volunteers and professionals who made the Great Gatsby Murder Mystery Dinner a success. First, the talented Tahoe Writer’s Club provided an evening of “Who Done It?” challenges in a face-paced, hilarious fashion that kept the full house well entertained.

The wine, generously donated by Dart Liquor, contributed significantly to the light-hearted atmosphere and the dishes of Cold Stone ice cream were welcomed treats for the guests as they departed.

Thanks also to Harrah’s/Harveys for the beautiful fruit-and- cheese platter and to the Horizon for the delicious Waldorf Salad (and Paula who delivered it then, with her daughter, set the tables).

But what would we have done without the volunteers who literally pulled the dining experience together?

Don, Todd, Jodi, Mary, and Denise: You were simply remarkable in your tireless, good-humored efforts. Finally, a note of appreciation to Candy Curtis, executive assistant, for the decorations and April Sutton, Boathouse Theater director for bringing us the show. Imagine the Murder Mystery Dinner Theater on Oct. 14.
