That was the event at the clubhouse Saturday night. The organizers provided several kinds of after-dinner treats, and invited any residents who wished, to provide even more. These latter were to be judged, and winners selected. As it turned out, the three judges ended up with a three-way tie, and had to come back and re-judge. They finally came up with first, second and third place winners. And apparently they did this by sampling each of the entries. Yum! Each of the winners won prizes of some kind.

So while you are unable to taste all these lovely treats, you may feast your eyes on them.

Where is everybody? looking (drooling) over the desserts behind me.

Lemon chiffon pie -- first place winner.

Fruit bars, I believe.

Oh, yes, chocolate! When I saw this one when we were browsing, I
told Cliff that was the one I wanted!

Cheesy cheese cake.

Chocolate chip cookies.

Mixed fruit bowl, obviously.

Anything chocolate! Cliff had some of this. Among other things.

No idea what these are.

Apple pie, I think.

Prune bars. Someone brought me one of these.

Looks tasty. Can't have everything.

Not sure what this one is.

I don't think the flowers are edible.

A trucker came into a truck stop cafe and placed his order. He said, “I want three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards.” The brand new waitress, not wanting to appear stupid, went to the kitchen and said to the cook, “This guy out there just ordered three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards. What does he think this place is, an auto parts store?” “No,” the cook said. “Three flat tires mean three pancakes, a pair of headlights is two eggs sunny side up, and running boards are two slices of crisp bacon.”

“Oh, OK!' said the waitress. She thought about it for a moment and then spooned up a bowl of beans and gave it to the customer.

The trucker asked, “What are the beans for?” She replied, “I thought while you were waiting for the flat tires, headlights and running boards, you might as well gas up!”


  1. LOL I love truck stop waitress lingo. I like to order a one-eyed Eqyptian. (make a hole in a slice of break, cook the bread on one side with a little butter, turn it over, plop an egg in the hole, and cook i sunny side up. (sometiems I lip it over to cook a bit on top)
    Are you signing up to judge the next dessert night?

  2. Banana nut bread, of course, you can smell it from here, can't you?

    Looks like a grand time was had by all!
