“The leading cause of death among fashion models is falling through street grates.”

Dave Barry (American Writer and Humorist best known for his weekly newspaper column. b.1947)

TIME: 5:48 PM
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.
