— Six Word Saturday — A Random Five post , This and That
my Six Words:
This church bench holding Mary and Mrs. Jim is for sale. We didn't inquire about the price. But it will sell fast because is one of a few from the old downtown Baptist church.
But instead I dipped a few shrimp in the sauce and put the Greek dressing on the salad. A tasting showed that the shrimp sauce overwhelmed any semblance of being Greek whatsoever.

Does that make things better?

You___? — My Alphabe-Thursday (2nd), the letter "Y" / Thursday Two Questions —
I was stationed to help with the fishing group. This also shows the 'leader' of our group. We baited the hooks, helped the kids with 'casting' their rods, holding them waiting for a bite, in pulling them in, and
then taking the hook out and putting the fish back into the lake.
This is the only turtle that was caught. Everyone was pretty excited about it. The youngster here didn't want to get too close to it but did want her picture taken with it. So, ...
BTW [By the way], the hooks had no barbs.
Show above left are our two fishing spots. I caught this little fish before the kids came back from lunch. This was my fourth time to 'fish.' The first was with my first steady girl friend at her parents farm. We 'got to' take her little brother and we spent most of our time baiting hooks and taking fish off for the brother. I caught no fish.
The second time was when camping with our four older children. Again no fish for me, it was all balt and release for the kids.
The third time was for my 70th birthday, BIL Billy took me to Orange, Texas, to fish with him and his dad in the Inter Coastal Canal that runs from Florida to Mexico. I was the only one who caught a fish as a storm came up and we had to come in (link to my prior fishing post). I got my first fishing license for that outing.
After our station came horse riding. The kids did ride one the horses, but they did not ride a horse. That second meaning means having control of the horse and can see that no way was this five-year-old in control his his big horse. He 'rode' in the same way that Mrs. Jim, Mema, and I rode camels in Egypt.
This station was very pleasant. I can remember that I always like to ride the paddle boats. We had six paddle boats.
Each group of children ran from 21 to 25 kids. They were grouped according to age, the youngest were five and then ages went on up to age twelve.
Our adults ran from the 60's up into the 80's. Alan, our Youth Director is about 30.
The beagle above reminded me of Adi. She loved having her next scratched. And Adi? She died on September 17, 2012. I still miss her very much.
This group here belonged with the paddle boats. Their job beside putting in and pulling out the boats included putting on the life jackets. Right now they were resting (waiting for the kids to come after lunch).
This is the smallest group. They help with making Cross necklaces which are a cross-shaped bottle filled with colored 'sand' and having a neck string attached to the screw lid.
Most work groups were six but this was smaller. We all enjoyed working with the young people as most have experience from being grandparents.
Here comes a group of youngsters, being escorted by a couple of the youth, to the fishing spot.
Below is the chow hall where we were served chili cheese dogs, chips, some fruit, and two Oriel Cookies. I had colored punch for drink.
At the right is the tired of not-so-young group ready to go home. The Bible study chapel is in the room behind this wall.
1. What is your idea of having fun with the young people?
2. How do you feel about fishing? .O
1. What is your favorite "Y" word?
