Aaahhhh! A Family Reunion

Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts.-Author unknown

On Tuesday night, we had an impromptu family reunion at Applejack Lane. Here we all are minus me. Dave was also present for dinner, but had to leave to take care of Burt and Timmy.
We have Hal, brother Jim, Sandra, Gilmore, Virginia Ann, Shirley, and Guy. Can you tell who is sweet? Who are the nuts?
The ladies were engaged in deep conversation hoping that I would not take a picture. Don't you just love the bottle of Joy in the foreground? I really set the stage when I snap photos.
Shirley, Jim, and Hal are equally enthused about having pictures taken. It must be one of those family traits.
Guy is pretending that he has just cleaned up the kitchen.
Virginia Ann congratulates Guy in pulling one over on the rest of us.
Gilmore spent the evening circulating among the crowd snapping pictures, but he just got caught at his own game.
Virginia Ann had many new stories about recent events to relate to us all. She is such a wit!

If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.- George Bernard Shaw

Good to see everyone. Have a safe trip back to Tuscon, Arizona.

Other things may change us, but we start and end with family.
