You've been warned

This post will only be fascinating to a couple of people. Their names are Julianne and Allison. Really, the rest of you are probably not terribly interested in pictures of our vacation, right?

There was swimming on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. After that, it got too chilly, even though the pool is heated.

On our drive home, Clarence was talking to his dad and Grandpa said the pool heater was broken. Our girls would have gone in anyhow-at least they used to before the heater was installed-but they were glad it was working while we were there.

There was shuffleboard. This is Grandma with Julianne.

We all had fun playing. Grandpa and Grandma are actually good at it, though. I didn't manage to get a picture of Grandpa. He offered a lot of advice on strategy and technique but gave up his cue so Clarence could play. After I showed up with the camera, Grandma gave hers up, too, and the four of us tried playing for a while. The difference in ability was immediately obvious.

Here's an action shot of Allison, mainly included so that you could see that Clarence is ready to be a senior citizen. He's got the white socks with shorts look down. He's so cute, isn't he?

I've got more to share, of course. Just remember, I warned you.

  1. What fun!

    Just a reminder to us all Karen, that we are all on our way to senior citizenhood! Oh dear!

  2. Hi Karen,

    I would love to try some of your bread recipes! Not the rye...but the others sound like great ones to try.

    You can email me, if you like at beckypfa (@) .

    Thanks so much!

  3. My California parents LOVED Shuffleboarding, winning many tournaments, producing these Obnoxious trophees I had to DUST! Ha

    My dad then started a shuffleboard team when they moved to Nebraska.

    Thanks for sharing...loved reading about it. (And yes, Clarence looked WAY TOO MUCH like he fit in! ha


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
