REMINDER: Party on, dudes. There’s too much cake left to quit now. I thought that Ruth took her gin with her but just now found in on the table beside Ken’s Couch Potato Salad. Matt, if you get my shirt wet one more time . . .
Today’s the day. I welcome one and all to join the fun by making your presence known so that others can greet you. Besides, if you brought brownies or other favorites, you’re sort of duty bound to speak up.
If you haven’t been to my back yard before, take your time to look around. The lake at the foot of the yard has no official name that I know of, but I call it Goose Lake. You can take the steps down to the water for a closer look. If you walk quietly, you’ll probably scare a dozen or more turtles off the rocks along the base of the wall. If you’re quicker than I am, maybe you can get a picture before they splash into the water en masse.
The grill has gas in it if anyone wants to flip burgers or some other delicacy. The lounges are getting old and we’re going to replace them this summer but they still make a perfect place for naps.
Our pool isn’t large but it offers a great way to relax. It’s only four feet deep so I just walk around in it and sip on whatever I find in my hand.
You’ll find benches here and there plus five tables with chairs. We have three hackberry trees, two maples, and a cherry so you’ll find shade when you need it.
We have plenty of coolers, the fridge is available in the kitchen. Come and go as you like. If you forgot your swimsuit, you can just zip home and get it.
I’m glad you came. Welcome!
