Fun, fun, fun! That is the Hunthausen Golf Tournament. I look forward to it anxiously all summer. My friend Maria, who is in charge of it all, looks forward to it anxiously all summer as well, but I think her anxiety is of a different sort. She lets me volunteer, and I feign working hard, but actually, I am just having a great time. The idyllic surroundings – lots of trees, a fabulous fountain spurting up from a lovely lakelet, darling duckies, all go to make a delightful afternoon. I was a failed photographer this year, so I only have a few for you. I was desperate to get a picture of the ducks who kept wandering right into the clubhouse during the pre-dinner party, perhaps looking for a glass of wine or - more likely, as they were ducks, a cocktail, but other party goers kept officiously shooing them out.

In addition to having a fun time, I brought home lots of swag. There was a silent auction, and I won a nice little bag made by my friend Peggy. There was a popular “wine roulette booth,” at which one paid the price and selected a cutely wrapped bottle of wine. This would prove, in most cases, to be wine very ordinaire, or maybe a bottle of wine somewhat better than ordinaire, but there was a possibility of getting some spectacular vintage, which would, no doubt, be wasted on me. I am certainly not among the wine cognoscenti, and am happy if it just tastes nice.
There was also a mystery gift table, and again one paid the price, with the potential of getting something fabulous – in this case, a huge Nordstrom gift card – but this is what I got. Not something I would have selected, but he will be a good companion for my Garten Zwerge.

The dinner was great too!
