Remember Trivial Pursuit? One of the cards has this question: What is unique about “The Case Of The Deadly Verdict”?
And the answer: Perry Mason Lost.
If there were a Jamsco/Jamfam edition of Trivial Pursuit, one question would be – What is unique about Sept 19, 2009?
The Answer: On that date our family tried and failed at our attempt to Picnic.
We have had fried chicken on picnics, and pizza, and sandwiches and chicken pot pie, but we have never brought charcoal to grill. This we did on Saturday and it didn’t light. We ran out of lighter fluid. We waited a half hour. It was getting dark.
So we threw some water on it, hopped into our van and used the gas grill. We ate steak and hamburger at 8:30. It tasted very good.
But I have been remiss. I have neglectedto mention that last weekend we beat last years picnic record (81) as we went on picnics 80, 81, 82 and 83. And it’s only the middle of September!
