I felt sad that more of the younger ones did not come. Some are just too busy with raising families and others just don't care. But I'm really excited because 2 of my cousins brought me some awesome "older" pictures...some going back to the 1800's, and I received many pictures from after the turn of the century. I'm ready to scan away at these. Another cousin told me she had a box full of pictures in the back of one of her closets...she says that I really wouldn't want them because they are undated and there are no names on them and they are 'really old'....I'm still working on her to let me borrow them. She's hesitant to give them up even for a little while.
The older couple sitting in the bottom picture are my oldest cousin and her husband. Both are in bad health, she has Alzheimer's and he has Parkinson's disease....they were both such a pleasure to have at the get-together...there were a few problems getting them there but we finally worked it out...it would not have been the same without them. She spent quite a bit of time flirting with the guys! She may have lost her memory but she has not lost her sense of humor!
