Family Reunions

Family Reunions - Where else can you actually visit with and enjoy fellow waders in your own gene pool, the people who share the same family memories and tragedies as you? It is so much better than just sitting next to each other at weddings and funerals. You get to watch the kids grow, as you create good times (and good memories) for that future generation. My reunion is the last Saturday in June every year. This year the weather was beastly hot, and the humidity had us all dripping, both from perspiration and from the pool. The food was good and the company was better. I heartily recommend it, even if you have to overcome petty jealousies and annoyances to relax and have a good time with everyone. They're your family, for goodness sake!
