The glass art projects we’re making for craft fairs were so engrossing that we got carried away and nearly didn’t give ourselves enough time to make hors d’oeuvres for the candidate reception hosted by the Benton County Dems.
We gave up our goal of making tiny filled cream puffs and opted for the old stand-by: Pillsbury crescent rolls flattened, topped with cream cheese/sour cream spread and diced veggies.

Beth Ann was surprised no other committee members were interested in organizing food for the candidate reception held at the Ray House in Vinton. She learned only after volunteering that the house is rumored to be haunted. Apparently no one wanted to be there by themselves. LOL. The lady providing this information said the piano played when she was alone at the house preparing for a graduation party.

I thought it would be pretty cool to run into a piano-playing ghost so was happy to help Beth and also to support my favorite candidate. If there were any spirits floating about the Ray House, we were too busy plating and organizing food and beverages donated by committee members to notice. I, for one, was a bit disappointed.
