           Hi Gang:
             Just today I had a family reunion on my Fathers side.
        Family reunions are funny. Even the car you pull up in can be the beginning of a "jugdement" from other more successful family members.   :D
              Relatives worry all of us, I think,  because they know too much about us; the family knows all of our problems and mistakes. Past and Present.

          Yet Reunions give us a chance to catch up on all the family gossip – who is divorced, who married, who died, who has a new baby, who is sick, and who is pregnant. We also get to talk about the people that didn’t show up and speculate on the real reason why. HAHAHA
              My family has it's share of eccentrics, as most families have.  Watch your purse around coisin so and so, as they are a kleptomaniac. Some are alcoholics. Forget all the divorces, especially the most recent ones.I just sweep it all under the rug and pretend I don’t know. (I hear PMM is gambling to much...LOL)

        I suppose I can tolerate being under the microscope for a few hours every few years, and I suppose everyone else feels the same way.

        All in all, nobody shot anybody else, nobody punched anyone else in the nose, nobody’s purse was stolen, nobody got food poisoning, and nobody got mad or left in tears. I suppose I could say that as family reunions go that makes mine a big success.


        Does anyone have any stories aout there about a family reunion gone bad?

        Not to be a downer PMM, but my cousins had one 3 years ago. Never told about it and neither was my older sister. Younger sister went probably bashed us the whole time and then left only to tell everyone 3 months afterward "It was so-so"

        Frankly I'd LOVE to have had a family that talked (Yes even gossiped) about one another. It's vile communication, but it's communication and you get to see people who you haven't seen 4-5 years.

        I think you are quite lucky and blessed with a group that is willing to put aside difference to at least get along.

        My family of origin is boring, boring boring!  Our family reunions are low key.  However, when I in my family practice I heard all sorts of horror stories about family reunions.  Some even have fist fights.

        Genenco:
                Oh I am so sorry to of brought up a bad memory for you with my post. It was meant to be funny, and remind people of the things we all do and have to do at family reunions.  If I have offended you in ANY way I am sincerly sorry.
                I do know how blessed I am with the family I have, and the communication that takes place.
                With all humor aside, today I recieved about a hundred hugs. How could you ask for more than that in a day?

        awww..no offense Pmm...Just the obvious thought to me of that when our Mother died, it kind of severed any connections we had as a family.

        I'm really envious of your experience though..100 hugs..Man I'd give almost anything for that. I really hope you have ten or more get together before you leave this earth.

        I do or did have one picture from years ago (I think I was about 5) had all the "Children" of the brothers/sisters who showed gather together. Man, there was about 22 of them and the family was only 4 boys and two girls.

        I still have some of the memories of that occurrence, though faded.

        New Mexico sucks in the summer..THAT I know too well!!

        Sending you one hug right now!!!!
              I'm so glad I did not offend you. I know the family politics you speak of, and they are not fun.  I am not oblivious to that fact, and there are many facets to my family as well.  I just chose to take the humorous side to things, and try to laugh when I can here at LCB when I share my experiences.
                Here's another hug tooo!!

        all the money talks and would give us each a dollar for our piggy banks, yes everyone not just kids)
        Cousin Cynthia (always depressed and complained of being over weight
        but constantly ate things like, double chocolate fudge cake with 3 scoops
        of ice cream in between, 2 bigmacs fries apple pie and ask for a diet soda?)
        Great Aunt Gretchen (moved to bermuda, is a practicing buddhist, married

        conversationist who spoke about the same things over and over again)
        Uncle James (his travels of bumming it from newyork to cali, which he's been doing for years now, not realizing he needs a shower...)
        Crazy Bill (he thought he could someday dominate the world, just by being able to hypnotize everyone)

          When my grandfather was still alive, and we went to family reunions, he would fill an old perscription cough medicene bottle with whiskey of some sort or another. Keep it in his breast pocket.
                He thought people would never think it was actually booze. Just something for a nagging cough.
                Well the whole family knew about Grandpa, and his "perscription."
                I love that memory.  Thanks for letting me share it.
