On Mother’s Day weekend when we were visiting the kids in Maryland, a torrential downpour interrupted the Saturday night barbecue party next door. Neighbors from around the corner joined us to wait out the rain at our kids’ house, and someone suggested a game of Apples to Apples. We had no idea how to play, but it is a cinch to learn.

The ages of the ten players ranged from six (our grandson Grady) to eighty-three (Gramps, aka Peter). It’s hard to imagine that a game could entertain a kindergartner, a third grader, an eighth grader, an eleventh grader and six adults, but Apples to Apples requires little more than a sense of humor.
People were competitive, but friendly. Some lobbied the “judge”. Others reprimanded the lobbyists. We laughed a lot.
The rain stopped. We kept playing.
