Joan brought the vino, Doug brought the beer. With all this excitement, Navidad must be near!
Wes and Judith brought a watermelon treat, while Doug and Giselle baked up postres so sweet.
Ricardo and Steve and Dana pitched in, serving our TP employees and kin.
Jesús, Alfonse, Roberto and Marcus were there… our four trusty guards, always aware.

Thinking of family and friends now gives pause…
