Where Did Summer Go?

Summer is the busiest time of the year for me personally.  With my job, we are gearing up for the local 4-H fair and then the state fair.  The month of July and August are mostly a blur.  We did get our living room and dining room remodeled but I haven't had time to go through things to put items back on the wall or shelves.  I was just relieved to have the rooms done and a place to sit back down.  The county school's have started a year-round schedule, so the student's went back to school, the first week of August.  I remember starting school in September.  Where did the summer go?

On Sunday, we had the "Reeves" Family Reunion, which is Bill's mom's side of the family.  The weather was perfect and the food, of course, was magnificent.  I don't think that families have reunions much anymore, which is a shame.  Reunions were where I met cousins that I didn't know existed.  Where we played for what seemed like hours on end while the adults played cards and visited.  We ate, then we ate some more.  In today's world, I guess we are just to busy to have reunions.  People have all kinds of things in there schedules that prevent them from just "hanging out" with their family.  I encourage you, to GO to your family reunion if you have one.  I promise you won't regret it.

In the chair, is Bill's Great Aunt Ima.  She is 98 years old
and the only living sibling of Bill's grandfather.  She is talking
to her niece Bonnie Meyers.
