I'm a few entries behind

Cliff's sister and her hubby spent two nights here.  Cliff took a vacation day Monday, and we headed southeast to visit relatives in Versailles.  Rena and Al rode with Cliff's older brother, Phil, in his car.  Cliff and I took the motorcycle.



We made a stop on the way, and Al kept close tabs on Rena's doggy, Angel.



We pulled up in front of Aunt Gertrude's house around 10:30.



She was busily preparing enough food for an army.



Cliff, his cousin Rick, and his brother Phil caught up on all the latest BS... er, uh... news.



Then his cousin Dale took Rick's place.



Rena took pictures while some of the guys looked at our motorcycle.



Dinnertime!!!!  There wasn't room on the table for all the food.



After the dishes were washed, we all enjoyed Aunt Gert's front porch.  These are Cliff's mom's sisters:  The oldest is in the middle, then Lois (on the left), then Gert.  Oh, the child she's holding isn't a relative.  She babysits him.  Cliff's late mother strongly resembled Aunt Gertrude.

What a joy to have a kitchen full like that one.  I love it when my family comes in like that.  'On Ya' - ma

well that's a house full!  I love seeing you all get together like that.... we have those kinds of get togethers in Jesse's family, but not very often.  Ah well...hopefully when I get my house, I can coerce the lot of them over with offers of food...  :-)

Happy Friday!

It looks like you guys had a wonderful get together....days like that just sitting on the porch together make some of the best memories.  The food looks great too.

Aunt Gertrude and her house was nice.  Looks like a nice place to "hang out".  Nice kitchen, nice porch, good conversation too I'm sure.

Love it!  We always put the food on the island, deserts on the counter and drinks on another counter.
