what was Middle Sunday? the third Sunday of each month, Steve and Paula would host a potluck – a whole day/evening of food and board games and word games and conversation. oh, and mah-jongg, lots and lots of mah-jongg. sometimes there was a theme (one October it was everything pumpkin), but as often not. I loved those days…even though I never really made friends with any of their friends, I always enjoyed the company, the games, and the food.
