Farewell Party to good Friend
We are planning a party for our good friend who is leaving at the end of the month. He is a co-worker for my husband that has been living here far from his own country for the last 2 1/2 years. He was such a good friend to us when we lived in his native Finland that we were so excited to have him with us here in Tx. Now he is so much a part of the family that it will be strange not to have him up here on a regular basis. Hopefully he will be back in the fall if we are lucky. But until then we are planning a heck of a party to send him off with. All the neighbors who have become friends with him as well as other co workers are coming. So it should be a long long weekend of friends, food, fun and of course beer. I hope the livers of all that come are healthy and in full functioning order. So I am excited at the fun of this weekend but also a little sad at the reason for the party. But not to worry because I know we will still get many phone calls from him in the middle of the night after he gets back home to keep us updated on how he's doing. So here's to big "KIPPIS" to our friend.
