Ted & Esther
Payne's, Lancaster, South Carolina
This year our get-together didn't have a planned program. Hans Moser welcomed
Our hostess Esther Payne.
We had a chocolate Tête de Moine which gave flower-like chocolate
Hans was delighted to hold
Ted's 1939 Swiss Military rifle, which reminded him of his days in the army.
Many of these kids only see
each other at the Swiss Believers get-togethers and have become good friends!
Stuffing our faces...
The kids are sitting around
the food table, waiting impatiently to start eating.
We had a nice buffet of finger-foods.
Hilda, Lois, Esther.
Chatting is our favorite activity...

plan to move to Geneva, Switzerland next month.
Ted Payne brought out his
collection of Swiss marksmanship medals, which got us started on a long discussion
of Swiss military weapons and target shooting.
