Mavis Hubbard, her sister, brother-in-law, two nephews and the family dog walked into her home after a wonderful week at a luxury hotel on an exotic beach.
Mavis had no high opinion of her sister’s husband. Still, he had won that vacation for them in a sweepstake sponsored by Dogeelicious. They had swum, surfed, water-skied, sunbathed, strolled beautiful beaches and flower-filled forests.
It was late afternoon. Now they were all tired and – despite eating gourmet meals all week – hungry. Their long-ago airline lunch had been scanty.
Mavis went to the cupboard. But of course it was still bare.
