It's hard to see the box against the dark cupboard, but I painted a large shoebox with black paint (inside and out) and attached the signage with common brads.  Then, I worked up an explanatory sign on my computer.  I've included business card blanks for people to write their AMAZING fact on and we will share them at our reunion dinner!  Thanks, TINYBEANS for this opportunity!

We've had a bit of rain in Reunion Land, actually a ton of rain!  Now, that is good news because the fire danger is now LOW,  the bad news is when rain, woods, warm weather & water combine it seems to encourage the mosquito population!  Regarding this photo-for those of us old enough to remember DUCK AND COVER-it WILL NOT SAVE YOU IN A NUCLEAR ATTACK nor a MOSQUITO ATTACK! Please pack bug spray! ( Thx to the person who created this pic!)

ALL 16 Cornhole Game bags are finished!  Man, they're a lot of work!  Heavy weight cotton duck fabric that has. Even triple stitched on the inside and outside (we don't need any bag failures at the reunion)!  Filled with 1.03# of popcorn (the first 3 were at that weight so..) and color coordinated with the boards!  Bring on the family for tons of fun!

My "autograph board!"  Luckily, last summer, before I won this awesome prize, I collected and saved some good-sized pieces of driftwood.  With my idea-wheels constantly spinning I thought I should be able to come up with something for the reunion.  I plan on having each person- man, woman and child-sign this.  What a special keepsake this will be!

Anyone who knows me knows I simply LOVE cookies!  I love eating them.  I love baking them and, no brag, just fact, I am pretty darn good at both!  This is the third batch I've  done for the reunion.  There is simply NO reason to go without cookies!  They make fun even MORE fun! These are a choc chip cookie base with coconut, oatmeal (for this watching their cholesterol) and a ROLO in the center! They have already passed the SPOUSE TEST!  Almost ready to pop into the freezer for the big day…

My dad at his workbench sketching out something special for EVERYONE to enjoy at the reunion!  Going to keep this one a surprise! He is 86 yrs old and going strong.  I can't tell you how much he helps me with all my projects both big and small!  I come up with some of the ideas and he with others.  He has made some fun things for the event!  Can't wait to share!  This man is beloved by so many!

My mom's family reunion-approx 1955.  How I used to love going to these. We continued to have these until 2001- a short time after our grandmother died.

The "STATE" pole showing where my family is coming from (I know, I know.never use a preposition at the end of a sentence!) for the reunion. It's standing in front of my beloved canned ham trailer.
