This and That

Just a bit of rambling here. Next week I will be hosting our family reunion. This will be the 23 year of the ‘cousin’s reunion’ and 22 of them have been at my house. I do love it. We can have anywhere from 25 to 40 which is really only a small portion of the family but different ones come each year. This year they will be coming from Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and California. We lost a beloved uncle this past week, so many of the family came in for that. Our family is very close and we all agreed with one thing said at the funeral. The minister said it was so unusual that such a large family, 8 siblings, had not only stayed in touch through out their lives but had been close friends too. That was certainly the case. I only have 2 uncles left on that side now and the 26 cousins feel that it is very important to stay close.

So with the reunion on the way there is much cleaning and cooking to do and we all know that is two of my strong points! Mollie won’t even be here to help. Next week she is taking drivers training! This child is 14! Just imagine how thrilled I am. I know it has to come but why so soon??

There is one more thing I forgot to tell you about my Potter weekend. I met Cassie and Tom! Look it’s not impossible, I may have! After all Paul goes to my gym and I get to watch him when I go, I know he claims to live in The UK but he sure looks like I know Paul looks. Now Cassie and Tom were at my mountain resort. Seriously I did meet and talk with the lovely older couple. I noticed that they always held hands and he seemed to always be looking at her. I couldn’t help but think of Cassie and Tom but it was just a funny notion until I looked up from my reading and saw a little convertible pulling out. I did seriously wonder after that but I did not see them or the car again. Come on Cassie, I know you guys were on a trip too, was it really you?

PK, if there were anything that I envy it's people with a big family, but fortunately I don't think that I'm the envious type, it's great that you enjoy these gatherings.
Wouldn't it be lovely to bump into some of our blogging friends, I'd love to meet Tom and Cassie we are of an age and hopefully would have a lot in common.
I've just read a comment that suggests that all us Spanko's are really a long lost extended family, brought together by the net. There may be something in that. *G*
Warm hugs,
Paul.

So you are wondering if Tom and I were at the same resort you were at last weekend. Hmmm... answering that would be telling wouldn't it?

Love,
Cassie

Paul,
I was blessed many times over with family and I never take them for granted!

I like the idea that spankos are all extended family I feel like I am related to every one of you!

Eva,
I knew it probably wasn't them until I read Cassie's comment

Now Cassie that was just mean. Tom ought to warm your butt!

Mthc,
LOL! But some how I can see Cassie on a Harley more than Tom!

David,
Seeing Cassie as a biker Mama in leather. I want a picture!

Nope... maybe I'll just think it is at least 8 years away for me! I think you did meet Cassie & Tom!!! Sounds like them to me!!! :-)
