We had a heated game of Washer Toss today. Jim took time from working in the kitchen to challenge LuVerne to a game. Well, let's just say that the game was fun to watch.

German Chocolate Cake started out as the favorite, but those of us that tried the other two kinds of cake raved about how delicious they were. Alas, there was no clear winner.
