Sunday review...

After lunch at John G's, the four Bells head N along the beach and stopped at the Little Red School House.

This is the front of it. It was locked, but when we looked through the window, we could see the American flag hanging on the back wall. Dick and Bob's mom made that flag! I didn't know that. Sure wish I could go inside and see more...we'll have to go back. Mom (as we all called her) was a school teacher, so saving this building was important to her. Just a little piece of local history.

This is the backside of the building.

Yesterday was quite windy. We walked across the back of the park and went down and looked at the beach. Didn't take us long to see that only the seagulls were out and even they were hunkered down and not out flying.
Lynne and I cooked supper and took it over to Dan and Joan's house...Joan made a fab cheesecake. After stuffing ourselves, then we got down to some serious marble playing.
Here is the board, handmade by some fella. You can see that cards are also involved. We play guys against gals. Score: guys 2; gals 1. Dang.

Bob and Lynne leave today, but Dick and I are going back over for another marble match tonight, this time with Johnnie and Susan. Everybody root for us gals, OK?

Enjoy your Sunday...we sure will. Life is good!

You have to go back and get a picture of the inside too! I feel a scrapbook page comin' on. Of course, Grandmommie didn't make the ORIGINAL flag for the school house.
