After our feasting, we normally break up into activity groups. This
year two groups set out for a brisk walk around Green Lake. The rest
broke into groups to play cards, while others felt content to just sit
around, relax, and talk. Nothing like a brisk, three-mile hike, a
take-no-prisoners game of pinochle, or a rousing round of croquet to
work off a meal. But WAIT! This year we played croquet before
Unfortunately, nobody thought to take pictures of the walkers. Oh,
here are some photos from past walks.

Well, yes, of course, we walkers enjoyed looking at other kinds of
scenery, too, in various stages of undress! But discretion prevented us
from surreptitiously snapping them. Again, at Green Lake, plenty of
eye-candy walked and ran by, some shirtless hunks picnicking with
friends and family nearby or just out for the exercise.
As for the rest, they just hung around enjoying the outdoors while
relaxing in the shade or soaking up the sun and chatting idly.
Wow! We havenít had anybody bring a croquet set to a picnic in several
years, so this year, it was great to see it return. Normally, people
played croquet after lunch, but this year, the avid fans started during
the appetizer scarfing. Maybe they wanted to work up an appetite for
the main event.
By 2:30, most folks
began to vanish, leaving the site to just a few, mainly those of us in
charge of taking down the banner, stripping off the paper table cloths,
packing up serving spoons
and the leftover soft drinks, and cleaning up the site to return it to
the condition in which we found it.
Yes, the picnic was finally over by 2:30. If you missed the picnic this
year, please join us next year, but only if youíre a member of Mature
Friends! But donít worry! If youíre not a member, you can sign up right
now. Just jump to the Membership
, fill it out, and mail it in with your annual dues of $40.00.
