Went on a picnic today with extended family including Momstheword and QOTW.  We all had a nice time.  Lots of mosquitos and yellow jackets, though. But the weather was good and the people were silly and that's what it's all about.

This evening I spent some time with some friends.  One of them lives in Houston and is in the area for a visit and another friend I only see when the Houston friend is in town, even though she lives in the area.  More of an acquaintance, I guess she is.  And the other two I keep in touch with. Friends from my old town.  It was a nice time.  

All in all, a good day, in spite of a dozen bug bites.


  1. Shoot! This does not help my theory that there are no bugs in Colorado!!

  2. Jan, I don't have a cute little camera that fits in my purse, so there are no pictures. Plus, not everyone I know likes their pictures put on my blog.

    Mel, We had so much rain a week or so ago. This really was unusual. I have only seen mosquitos like that once or twice before, usually near a lake.

  3. I commented on the fact that I felt as though I was walking up a hill (actually I was, between the table of food and my chair). QOTW said, "Do a Charlie Chaplan thingy for us." With incredible timing, as she said that, her styrofoam plate broke in two and her food fell in a pile in front of her. I still have to giggle when I think about the perfect timing!

  4. Kay, e-mail me with the name of the friends. I want to know who they are.
    And your daughter said (when I asked her) that on the fun level it was a "sorta" So that's good!

  5. Glad you and your family had a nice visit despite the bugs.

  6. Good times! I may comment on my blog about the get-together.


I love to hear your thoughts!
