Another 4th has come and gone and another gathering is in the books. Only about 63 or 64 or so this year but a good gathering indeed. Katie and Faye made it and having them here is always special. Health issues prevented cousin Jimmy from making it but his eldest came and took a plate back.Rose Marie and I had 8 of our 11 and a half grandkids here and that made for a basket of fun. Hoping next year we can get all 12 of them in. They can bring their parents too, we don't mind. The Johnson boys were here as well, and that too is something else. Janis and Sandra (Andie to many of you) are trying to work out some of our ancestry on Grandma's side of the family and picked up a couple of leads on that.
The eating was something else, as usual. George did a great job on cooking the fish and chips. For those wondering, nope not much left in the way of leftovers. I did save some for Mr. Woodrow if I can get them to him without dipping into the stash. Having turned diabetic last year I had to watch myself on the eating but everything I did eat was downright tasty. And Gus, send me those recipes (firstname.lastname@example.org). That Apple Cake was perfect. Look for pictures on my homepage soon. I have to download them to a computer first. I did post a few on facebook though. (Sorry for the scare Carolyne.) Thank you all for being there and helping out. I love my family of angels.
Day or night
I stand ready to fight
The evils of thunder or diesel.
No mercy here,
Not even for beer
Will I yeild to noise or light.
I WILL shred all paper in sight.
