Final installment of Labor Day saga

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

This is finally the last chapter in our Labor Day saga.

After Tamara had an empty hole in her ear, she said she must go into Rapids and get a new earring for it. She took off with Kaitlynn, Lauren and Olivia to do some shopping. That left Doris, Susie, Tyler and me. Tyler was a little miffed that he didn't get to go with either the guys or the gals, but he wandered into the bedroom to play with some of the toys. We gals sat down with a hot cup of coffee, but it wasn't long before Tyler came out looking for some action. Susie got him a Popsicle, which he devoured in about 10 seconds. He then went back into the bedroom and came out with a huge pirate hat on his head and sword, he had a tooth out, had one eye closed and had a lopsided grin on his face and looked for all the world like Peg Leg Pete. Susie grabbed her phone and got some pictures and we laughed ourselves silly. That said, it still amazes me that everyone (except me) takes pictures with their phone. Whoever would have "thunk" it.

The next guests to arrive were Mike's niece Heather and her two children, Breeley who is two and Lincoln who is 4 months.

Now Tyler had some one to play with, he grabbed Breeley's hand and they took off.

By about 5 p.m., Doris and I decided we'd had enough fun to last us for many a moon. And we took off for home.

I was told by Susie that they always have a "ribs cook off" and vote to see who makes the best ribs. This is done by Scott, Kurt, and Corey. They each had their own grill, racks of ribs, all of their secret spices and whatever else they put on them and the fun began. The ribs spitting on the fire has such an aroma that everyone was lickin' their chops (s'cuse the pun) and could hardly wait to try them.

From what they tell me, it was hard to judge as they all were so delectable.

Much fun was had by all. The rest of the weekend was spent in the water, either swimming or fishing.

Almost forgot when the gals got home from shopping, Tamara was sporting a brand spankin' new earring in her ear.

Another Labor Day Weekend only a memory to be cherished.
