This year's reunion was held from Friday, June 30th, through Sunday,
July 2nd. However, some arrived a day early, and some also stayed
a day later.
It was a lot of fun, and it was nice to see everyone
again. Too bad there were so many unable to attend, but that's
just the way it is sometimes. Hopefully, you folks that couldn't
make it this year will be able to next year.
But just so you know, UNCLE DAVE WON THE QUILT THIS YEAR!!! WOOHOO!!!
Finally, after all these (how many, 15 or so?) years, I finally won the
quilt. Many thanks to Luella and everyone who helped her make it. It is a beautiful project.
So, on with pictures!

you go to work and watch it when you come home.)
