      You know, Marilyn and I have done a lot together over the years at the retreat, but I draw the line at showering with a friend.

      Cremation - My last hope for a smokin' hot body.


      Before you speak,
      T - is it TRUE?
      H - is it HELPFUL?
      I - is it INSPIRING?
      N - is it NECESSARY?
      K - is it KIND?

              I shower with my husband almost every night. Can I bring him so we can shower together while I am in Hamilton?

                Just for clarification - the Sunday night gift game is the dirty Santa game. The game will be played this year with retreaters bring a jelly roll or layer cake. Please bring the item wrapped or in a gift bag. It will be very similar to what we did last year on Sunday night and stealing packages will be allowed like last year. And remember the games like the other activities at the retreat are optional.
