I had to disappoint them both when I told them they couldn't keep himThe rest of Saturday was spent preparing for our World Cup party. We had "The Dutch Brunch" and offered both Spanish and Dutch fare. There were 12 people here watching the game. Maggie hates watching television so we put her where she could see all the people but not the screen. Most of us were rooting for The Netherlands(Maggie was decked out in Orange) but none of us were that into soccer that it mattered. Mainly we ate Dutch cheese and Spanish Omelets, drank Sangria, Cava and Dutch Beer.
Conversation was light and easy until something happened - or almost happened - in the game. Poor Maggie would jump a mile when there was a shot on goal and all of us shouted at once and then followed quickly with "oooooohhhhhhhh" when the shot missed.
Maggie was a little relieved when her nurse Josephine arrived and she could leave the room.
