In spite of what I've told you about not much liking the idea of joining groups, a few months ago when one of the residents invited me to come to a meeting of the Crones, I was intrigued enough to attend.
What I found was a group of women, somewhat advanced in years, highly individual, somewhat unorthodox; what I would call "thinking women". The conversation was stimulating, the evening passed quickly and I've been joining them at their monthly meetings ever since that first meeting. It was a while before I realized that it was more than a group of local women who decided on that name for their group. The Crones is (are?) more wide-spread than that.
As the group was getting ready to disperse last evening, I called Mr. Bob to come down one floor with his camera. It was decided that he could be a "Crony" for as long as it took to take a group picture.
