I do not know if those pesty, yellow and black beasties flying around were bees or wasps but they circled around trying to taste the delicious food brought by the Young At Heart for the annual picnic. They loved pop and beer but as far as I know, no one was stung. Two large roasters full of Sloppy Joe ingredients sent an spicy aroma wafting through the park.
On another table, every kind of salad and side dish imaginable covered the whole table. Pasta, watermelon, green leaf, corn and beans were among the many dishes. The dessert table had a variety of sweets; cinnamon rolls, cookies, brownies, pies, cakes, shortcakes, etc. If there had been a contest, I know which dessert would have taken first place. Small pastries filled with fruit and displayed like a large flower. The lady that baked the dessert brought baggies thinking that there would be some left over, and she said to me, "They disappeared and there weren't any left so no one got to take any home!"
There were around eighty-five persons enjoying companionship and food before the June, July and August birthdays were called to get their Hershey bar. This was something new because in the past, the summer birthdays are skipped over. I do believe that the summer babies were happy to have Happy Birthday sung to them at the picnic.
