reunion, go cowboys

we had our first reunion this year for our family
never seen so many people that looked and acted
the same

we had not been together since my moms funeral
a few years ago

never seen so much gray hair in the men
for some reason except for a few none of the women
seem to have gray hair

never know that these people were professional people-
retired army, retired fireman, fireman, teachers, doctors,
professors, principals the way everyone were having a good
of course the food was good as it always was

there were lots of old stories some probably stretched and
some altered to sound good

remember once my youngest brother he walked between
my other brother he when we were fighting
my younger he was hit in the face with a metal piece from an
old plow      he was covered in blood       he had to be taken
to the emergency room to get sutured      he still has the scar
on the upper lip and face     know i didnt throw that thing
and hit him      know it was my other brother      there
has never been an agreement on who threw it      
wasnt an agreement that day either
(its my blog so i didnt throw it)

there was a lot of pictures     many had not seen for years
there were videos to watch      old memories were brought
forward    most of them good ones

several  old friends stopped by and said hello

most of the grandkids and great grandkids  were there also    
dang they look like their parents

overall it was a good reunion
we plan to have one every year
tis nice to see everyone together at one time

thanks to email and facebook its much easier to stay in touch
during the year
but there is no substitution for a hug and personal conversation

well now it feels better to be a cowboy fan
they are 3-1 in last four games-should be 4-0
they cant make the playoffs but they can end the season
on a high note for next year
maybe they found their coach huh

have not seen the bowl pairings this morning
hope arkansas got the sugar bowl or equivalent
like to watch that quarterback play
