Family Reunion

Every year on the last Sunday of September my family on my mother's side
have a reunion. We have done this as far back as I can remember. It is an awesome
time to get to see all my cousins. I miss all my aunts and uncles that have passed on.
Thank God for all the good memories we have of them.On the left is my cousin by marriage Barbara and two of her grown children
on the same side of the table. She is the one I made the chow chow for.
Aunt Inez. She is 92 and the oldest of her siblings. I wish I could have got a
picture of her riding on the motorcycle with one of her nephews. It was great!

My cousin Sammy

My cousin David with his new bride Connie

My mother, cousin Danny and Margaret (Uncle Donald Rays sweetheart).
My mother is one of four living out of 14 siblings. She has 3 sisters left.


Apples, apples, and more apples

Can I eat it?
Our little harvester
This is about a third of the apples from the tree. We still need to pick the rest!

Why do I love this so much?
But I love color so much too?!
I think I need to own at least two houses (sigh)

Todays Quote

"If it weren't for toilet paper I would never go to church" Kenneth Bundy
This is because he can hardly stand the loud music
and has always stuffed his ears with toilet paper.
Whatever it takes! (eyebrows raised)
