Fun in the sun and playing Holy board!

Where are we today ? 
       A wonderful morning, sunshine and mild weather. We got our act together this morning to play Holy Board! (the original washer toss game). Nope it's not a religious thing it's just what they call it here. And every morning at 10 am whoever shows up can play. Cost .25 cents per person and is a lot of fun. Some skill but more luck than anything. It's been a couple years since we have played, but still had fun. Suzie did better than me (thats not unusual). But neither one of us came away with any money. The whole morning cost us a whole dollar, for 90 minutes of fun and socializing. Eight teams of 2 total 16 people today.

         After Holy board a quick trip to Buckhorn for a few items and notice someone was filming something by the Big Buck Statue at the liftlock in town.
not sure what but a small production
a couple nice big houseboats here too
          Then back home and puttered around for a while cleaning windows and reading for a while until our neighbor Pat informed us it was time for "Happy Hour". So grab a beverage and socialize for a bit (Suzie got her dog fix again, with Billy-Jean))
         Then again time to fire up our Q and "Fry Daddy" to grill a couple chicken burgers and homemade fries.
really hit the spot tonight
        So there thats what we did for fun today, amazing how time flies when we having fun!
        Thanks again for dropping by for a peak to see what we do with our time. How was your day?

  1. Suzie is great at darts so she does have advantage. So how does the great G - Man make homemade BBQ fries?

  5. I've never heard of "Holy Board." However, I HAVE heard (and played) a game popular among RV-ers called "Pegs and Jokers." It's really fun!

    You dinner looks yummy! I wish I were good at the grill!

  6. Don't much care for group card games, but this outside game is fun.
    Practice on the grill, helps.

  7. I've always sworn that you'll never find me in a park around one of those games of Horseshoes, Shuffleboard, Holy Board or whatever as it reminds me too much of an old folks home and I don't want to be old. That said, the game does look like fun but I'll continue to watch it from a distance.

    1. Don't much care for most of the other games but the Holy Board here is fun and most of the people are our age or younger, sometimes even kids play too.
      Now down south is a different story in 55 plus parks.

  8. We really enjoy playing Holy Board, but here in Ohio we call it West Virginia horseshoes. Why...who knows.
