We are still recovering here from the weekend, a family reunion/golf tournament that has been happening for 37 years. Golfing, partying - there were some milestone birthdays to celebrate on Saturday night, eating, and trying to find some shade on Sunday. New this year were some potato sack races and adult-child relay races on Sunday. The potato sack races were supposed to be for the kids - the 15 great-grandkids, but with crew of adults who don't believe they have aged at all, there was a race for the grownups too. Luckily, no broken hips ensued.
Reading wise, I am still with The Gargoyle, but I'm not reading slowly for lack of interest. I've been in ancient Iceland, medieval Germany, Japan, Iceland and Italy. I think I am also taking a detour through Hell. I am savoring the experience, with love stories and an engrossing time in the middle ages. I am at a loss how to describe this book, but I won't soon forget it. (The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson)
