We are going to have an open thread today. At our house we have a big annual neighborhood picnic to attend and those helping with the arrangements must arrive early. This is an annual event held at Matthew F. Maury school a couple of blocks from here. The picnic involves all the usual old-timey American features; contests for prettiest baby, best looking dressed up dog, bicycle, etc. Athletic events suitable for the day, such as three legged races will occur along with a lot of picnic food and the inevitable speeches by local politicians. Ah, I forgot the carnival "rides" for the little kids. So, we are busy today.
There ought to be a lot to talk about. Have at it! pl
