Thanks cofty, leavingwt, Messerschmitt, and dgp. dreamgolfer, Las Malvinas are an ideal and the Falkland Islands are the status quo. Not the same thing really.
JWs and civilians alike were there in force. This was by no means a JW only party, as there was even a designated smoking section outside. The subject of the gathering was a non-JW relative of mine who personally invited me. The JWs in attendance were mostly family members, who by and large acknowledged my presence. My mother as it turned out was the only one who really had a problem with it. There was no hint of tension at the soiree at all until I got the letter. It was unnecessary too. What should have been just a simple gathering was made into some sort of jihad later. My visible pregnancy was what set her off.
