PLACE: Church picnic
SUBJECT: Grate outside the gym.
We went to a church picnic this evening with the family. We had an all-you-can-eat chicken dinner and sat by my Uncle Albert (mom’s brother), Aunt Ann, my cousin Kevin and his wife-Beth and my Aunt Alice (mom’s sister). After dinner, of which I ate too much, HH gave the kids money and off they took for the carnival rides and inflatables. He and I watched the polka-ing that was happening in the parking lot, then played some poker at the poker stand (HH won a 2-liter bottle of Coke-woo hoo!). We then proceeded to lose money trying to win some gift baskets at several other stands. We caught up with the kids, distributed additional money for a few more rides and games and finally, headed home.
