AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Young

Not around the house for the past few days. We went to Williamsburg, VA for a family reunion. It was great meeting all of my extended family members to be. What a wonderful bunch of people. The reunion was held at a large pavilion in a local park. Among other things, we played a game called Horse Race. It was fun. I’m not a gambler but I made $2.00. Yeah! Then the sky darkened, we started hearing thunder, and everyone cleared out fast. We just made it to the hotel before the downpour. It was much too hot to do much outside Tuesday but we really enjoyed the inside pool at the hotel.
