We had some interesting neighbors stop in….  slightly famous….

But much more fun than the originals

Two tables of neighbors being nice to one another in cards….  nobody would play a joker and make their neighbor draw 5 or possibly say a not so nice word as draw 2 is played.  They are all perfectly nice neighbors..

Troy caught between Linda and Gloria who had only nice cards to play…

Matt with only 4 points he was very proud… later in the game he was not smiling as much as he made a record score of 195 in one hand….  Tom might have had something to do with that

Tom definitely had something to do with Sarah’s long face

Rich was all smiles as he played a joker draw 5.  

In the end everyone was just as nice to their neighbor as their neighbor was to them

And best yet playing the ponies so you can write to the teacher 1st day of school essay what did I do on summer vacation?  I bet on the ponies and lost all my money

Some piles of pennies got larger and some got smaller

Time to go back to the lake

See you at the lake with good neighbors who forget while laying in the sun that you put the 3rd draw 2 on top of the pile making you draw 6
