I am so thankful for the group of croppers that descend upon my house every Saturday evening. There are so many different personalities and talents in this group and we mesh so well. It's always fun to have new people join us and become part of "the regulars." John is our newest regular, and he seems to be fitting right in. He has a good sense of humor, as witnessed by the layout above. At times we see him blush and cover his ears when the conversation takes an unexpected turn, usually as the evening wears on. Peanut Head provides a little buffer for him, as he is usually sitting on the couch with his laptop, silently amused. Sometimes John will get up and saunter over to him and start a conversation, sort of an adult's way of covering his ears and singing "La, la, la, I can't hear you."
