Fun Day

Today has been a good day. We had folks from Jilda's family that came up for lunch and they stayed for most of the afternoon. Jilda cooked up a batch of her BBQ ribs and she also whipped up some of her world famous potato salad. I thought they were going to eat the bowl. I'm not sure what she does differently than other folks, but whatever it is, it works.
I got out the croquet set and laid out a par 4 course in the back yard. None of my great nieces or nephews had ever played croquet so I explained the rules and how to hit the wooden balls with a mallet. A few moments later there were balls heading in all directions. Attempts to have an orderly game were lost in the opening moments so the grownups did their best to dodge the little wooden rockets. I know for a fact that they hurt when they hit an ankle.
This evening we headed to my sister's house to howdy up with my family. The only thing they requested that we bring is - you guessed it, potato salad. So before we headed out, she cooked up another five pounds of spuds.
We looked at each other on the way home and I knew what she was going to say before the words came out of her mouth- tonight going to be an early night.
