It's Greedy Time!
What do you do at the kampground when you are bored? Call everybody up with a promise of a strawberry dessert, then make them play a dice game, that's what!
A good turnout, and Martha brought popcorn and ice cream. And wine. I made a pound cake to serve with the fresh strawberries. Nan brought the dice and Barb laid out the rules for Greedy. Barb kept score and He Who manned the corkscrew ......
He Who tows was not playing, in case he got a call. He just threw the dice for players who may have retreated to the outdoors to smoke. Seemed the logical choice to open the wine ....... or maybe not.
He actually broke the neck of the bottle trying to get the cork out! Did we toss the wine? Really, you know how I hate waste. I was prepared to sip it very carefully. Patrick suggested a coffee filter to strain the wine and we did for the first round. After that and finding no shards of glass we drank more. Oh, no wait, that was ME who had more. And then more. I am told I was very happy. I had no trouble falling to sleep. I did not win, but I did not care.
I do remember thinking it was too hot and He Who was not playing held the fan on Tom, then me. I think we ate, the cake and strawberries were gone ......... but, then, so was I. I don't get out much, you know.
