Fourth of July a perfect time for grill

July 1, 2012
Patty Christopher , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

We recently returned from a wonderful vacation in the Catskills in New York. We go there often, so it was like old home week for us. This one was special, though, as we had four generations of family together. The resort to which we go is a "full service" resort - one doesn't need to go anyplace else for anything. There are more activities than one can do in addition to nightly entertainment and great food at reasonable prices. The deer there are so tame they would come right up to the condo for cookies. One evening, a skunk walked by, but kept on walking, thank goodness. We also had a baby raccoon visit the patio, and the kids found a large snapping turtle traveling through the area. It was so relaxing, which we needed, but it is always good to get home.
