Dinner was at 9:00 PM
Years ago I had given Jutta a simple necklace of three
silver links on a gold wire, asking her to wear it as a
recognition that our lives were linked.
This year, I asked a jeweler friend to have those links
set in diamonds in recognition of our beginning a new
millennium together. She was pleased.

At Home

Jutta decided to celebrate our first dinner at home of the new millennium, and began by admiring our tree.

Karen and Salo gave us the Champagne 2000
glasses. Leaving the low-fat dressing bottle in the
shot did not do much for the image!

Jutta in her "at home" dinner dress. I think she
borrowed it from the Empress Josephine.

And one last look at the Dickens Village

Happy 2000!
