Company picnic

Our company picnic was yesterday. We had a terrific time. The weather was perfect, and the organizers did a good job. The rec center staff did their usual outstanding work with the activities for kids, and there were several of those large inflatable whatchamacallits - slides and obstacle courses, and a trampoline-like room. One large slide was shaped like the half-sunk Titanic, which was appropriate. A couple of times something went wrong (tripped circuit breaker or something) and it deflated.

We even won some good door prizes: a big umbrella and a 12x18 screen house. We could have used that screen house last month, when the mosquitoes had taken over.
