Working Off Lunch with a Walk Last Year

Working It Off

After our feasting, we normally break up into activity groups. This year nobody went walking and nobody set up a card game. But some hearty souls played a little croquet.

Normally, we would have a couple tables of cards. But since that didn't happen this year, I'm showing you a picture of a past game.


Take-No-Prisoners Pinochle Game

Croquet Players

Wow! We havenít had anybody bring a croquet set to a picnic in several years, until last 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. Lucky for them because they avoided the drizzle that anointed us after lunch.

By 2:00, 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 Form, fill it out, and mail it in with your annual dues of $40.00.
